Report: Dumervil nearing decision?

Doom mulling offers from the Ravens and Broncos?


According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Free Agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil is mulling offers from the Ravens and the Broncos. According to Klis, Denver is offering Dumervil more money in the early part of the contract than Baltimore. No other specifics of the contracts have been released.

The Ravens have delivered a contract offer to Dumervil, according to two NFL sources. However, the sources say the Broncos have offered slightly more money in the early portion of the deal.

The Broncos' money has tightened because of a $4.89 million dead-money, salary-cap hit they absorbed while releasing Dumervil last week, so re-signing Dumervil likely would mean releasing a player or two off their roster.

Klis also goes on to say that Miami and Tennessee have also expressed interest in Dumervil, but have yet to submit a formal offer to Dumervil. ProFootballTalks Mike Florio is also reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers are also in the mix for the Broncos

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, the Steelers, Ravens, and Broncos remain in play for both players. Currently, Dumervil’s decision is expected to come down to Baltimore and Denver. Whichever of that duo doesn’t get Dumervil becomes likely to land Freeney, with the Steelers as the possible alternative destination.

it's interesting that they do not mention John Abraham who visited Dove Valley yesterday and today. It seems like this story is nearing its end. I believe we'll have an answer tomorrow. Hopefully Dumervil decides to stay in Denver, but i wouldn't blame him if he decided to move on because of recent events. If he decides to join the Baltimore Ravens, look for Freeney or Abraham to sign and DE move atop the Broncos draft plans.

Go Broncos!
