YouWager experts have heard the news that after the fax faux pas and several denied appeals the Denver Broncos and free agent Elvis Dumervil are likely to reconcile.
The 29 year-old and the Broncos agreed upon a restructured contract that would have paid him $8 million this year. Nevertheless, Dumervil’s agent did not get the paperwork faxed to the team until seven minutes after the NFL deadline on Friday. The NFL team was forced to cut Dumervil because if they hand’t they would have had to pay him $12 million in 2013.
Dumervil’ agent Marty Magid was subsequently fired on Saturday. The Broncos are open to re-signing Dumervil and he according to different sources he wants to return. Even so, there are salary-cap issues at play. The Baltimore Ravens and the the Pittsburgh Steelers also have reportedly expressed interest in the Miami native.
Three years ago Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract when Josh McDaniels was coaching the team and before Elway joined the Broncos front office.
The defensive end had 11 sacks last football season, second on the team behind Von Miller. Dumervil led the NFL with 17 sacks in 2009.
