PFW - Dumervil: 'Tough decisions' ahead - Dan Parr
"I feel like out of 100, I'm maybe 70, 75 percent at playing the position and knowing what's going on. I'm going in the right direction, but yet I've still got a lot to go. That's the exciting thing about it. I feel blessed just being so far (along), but I know deep inside my capabilities aren't at the point of what I can achieve or where I want to go. I feel like I'm not there yet. That's motivation for me to want to compete and work harder and get better."
How's that for humility?

DPP - Broncos not likely to keep all of their stars in 2010 - Mike Klis
"If there is no CBA deal between the owners and players union, the Broncos would have the right to bring back such star players as Marshall, sack-specialist Elvis Dumervil, quarterback Kyle Orton, starting guard Chris Kuper and Scheffler on the cheap. As in one-year deals between $1.1 million and $3.043 million."
