John Abraham is scheduled to visit the Broncos on Thursday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 20, 2013
Both Dwight Freeney and John Abraham are considered the Broncos fall out options if they cannot re-sign Elvis Dumervil. Freeney (33) is coming off a 5 sack year for the Indianapolis Colts. John Abraham(34) was the Atlanta Falcons pass rush, and totaled 10 sacks for the Falcons defense.
Yesterday it was reported that John Elway and the Broncos offered Free Agent DE Elvis Dumervil a new contract.
"We've offered Elvis a contract," Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway said Tuesday. "We'd like to have Elvis back."
No specifics of the deal were revealed, but it's widely speculated that the submitted contract was well less than the restructured contract that both agreed on last week. Now today, Denver Post writer Mike Klis tweeted this...
Elvis Dumervil underwhelmed by Broncos' latest three-year offer, according to two sources. He's planning to visit teams in next 48 hours.— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 20, 2013
I don't find this too surprising. The Broncos cannot offer him the same contract because of the 4+ million dead money cap hit they suffered when they released him. It seems like the Ravens are the front runners for Dumervils services, and could potentially offer Doom more money if they cannot re-sign Ed Reed. This all could be a leverage move by the Broncos to try to make Dumervil make a decision sooner rather than later. Though it looks like Dumervil has played his final downs in a Denver Broncos uniform.
