“I’ve been confident all along and know I didn’t do anything wrong. It was a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and I’m just ready for football.”

Those are the words of a relieved man — Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil — who found out today that charges will not be filed against him stemming from his arrest in Miami on July 14th. Dumervil was arrested for aggravated assault with a weapon, a class 3 felony with a minimum sentence of three years.

Dumervil’s arrest came after a traffic altercation involving him, a friend, and two passengers in a white Impala. According to the police report, Dumervil and his friend allegedly lifted their shirts to reveal a gun in each’s waist band. However, Dumervil or the Land Rover he was driving were not mentioned in the 911 call that led to the police being on the scene.

The quick nature of the investigation causes us to believe the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell won’t be getting involved in the case. The Denver Post cites two sources close to Dumervil who said that Dumervil was not carrying a gun, and neither the Land Rover nor the gun in its glove compartment belonged to him.

Dumervil, relieved and exonerated, reiterated that he is just ready for football.

“It’s huge. We work so hard as a team,” Dumervil said. “Our organization, since OTAs, minicamp, to come into training camp with such an issue like that trying to assassinate my character, it’s not something I would like to deal with. It’s overwhelming to kind of just deal with football now.”

    Great news! Time to focus on football. Von Doom in full effect

    They will team up for at least 30 sacks this season.

    Now if we can just get through the first 6 games without DJ, we are going to have a stellar D

    Now that the forward pass is back in denver and the broncos may actually have a lead once in awhile doom is really going to benefit. Von is going to demand extra attention and doom is going to reap the rewards. Hoping Warren, bannan and wolfe (at times) can eat up blocks and Doom creates havoc…15+ sacks this year for doom.

    I am glad Elvis is off the hook and will be on the field in September. However, it’s time for the man to pull his head out of his ass and stay the hell out of trouble. His future is all his to shape… don’t screw it up!
