John Elway --

"As we have from the start of this process, we worked diligently over the last week to find a way for Elvis Dumervil to remain a Denver Bronco. Although we made multiple contract offers to Elvis after being forced to release him, we were unable to reach an agreement and are now moving forward without him.

"Elvis was a team captain and a talented player who made a great impact during his seven seasons in Denver. I appreciate all of his effort on the field and the work he did in the community.

"I wish Elvis all the best as he continues his NFL career."

The Broncos made "multiple offers" to Elvis, but clearly his heart wasn't in the Rocky Mountains anymore. Oh what a difference six fax-less minutes make.

We echo Mr. Elway's sentiments and wish Elvis Dumervil the best.
