YouWager fans who follow the Baltimore Ravens know that their champs have lost some big names this offseason. Now the team is trying to do something about it at the expense of the Denver Broncos.
Baltimore has made their interest known to free-agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil, who was cut by Denver in a fax snafu last week.
The 29 year-old does not have a visit to Baltimore scheduled, however general manager Ozzie Newsome reached out to the player’s agent immediately after he was cut. Dumervil fired agent Marty Magid, after the necessary paperwork for his reworked contract didn’t make it to the league office in time.
Denver has already made an offer to bring Dumervil back into the fold. The Florida native had agreed to reduce his salary from $12 million to $8 million for next NFL season.
The star player signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010. Dumervil had 11 sacks last season, second on the team behind Von Miller. He led the NFL with 17 sacks in 2009.
The Ravens have let go defensive back Bernard Pollard and guard Bobbie Williams, traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers, lost linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger in free agency and watched linebacker Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk retire. Reports state that safety Ed Reed has agreed to a three year contract with the Houston Texans.
