After releasing defensive end Elvis Dumervil earlier this week, the Denver Broncos have approximately $7.1 million remaining in 2013 cap space, according to spotrac.com.


There are conflicting reports as to whether or not the team will try to bring Dumervil back, but Elvis reportedly wants to return to Denver.

    If The NFL/NFLPA enforces the deal, the Broncoa will have about $4 million to spend. Remember, they still have draft players to sign.

    So, if Dumervil comes back, they’re probably done signing FAs.

  • Pete Baron

    I would suspect, cause the draft would be better to fill their remaining needs.

    That’s not a lot considering we need a DE and to sign all our draft picks! Hopefully the league will either make the deal valid or Doom signs with the Broncos and takes $3 million as a signing bonus since we’re already giving him $5 million!

    The beauty of it is, BPB, we don’t need virtually every position, as we did just a year or so ago. Now we can draft for longevity.

    Hey areferee
    I saw read where the Magid was complaining about getting all sorts of nasty emails and phone calls from irrate Bronco fans!! Thanks for posting the information!! I know he received a nice little love note from me. :-)

    I would have to say that no news is good news at this point. My guess is the union will step in get the signed deal approved
    I would really like to know if the FO f’ed up the paperwork as the agent claims (said it had to faxed to him three time to get the numbers right). If that’s the case, Sullivan should be flogged. That said, I don’t think Dumervil would have fired him if our FO was at fault. Doom would know what really went down.

    Forget Elvis. Please Elway bring Abraham our way!!!!

    What are the chances that the deal gets enforced?

  • Pete Baron

    Depends on if Doom wants it enforced. If he does, I’d personally give it a 90% chance.

  • Pete Baron

    He’s all around better, but for how much longer is the question?

  • areferee

    Sure thing, Ant. I sent a “love” note of my own.

    NFL has a few things to answer. If they had a verbal why should we pay the 5mil? We thought we had a deal. If we didnt have a deal im sure we had a trade in the works. What are we talking about? A fax and the time. Seems easy to me. If Doom wants to walk he should have to leave the 5mil behind. Cant have it both ways. Every player in the league would try this. Agree to a deal. Fax it late. Collect 5mil. Sign with another team. Not gonna happen.

    I’d say 2 years he will still be a force. You go after a solid DE in the draft and let him learn game by game. Having Abraham puts no pressure on him and he learns from a savy vet. We will be fine without Doom. He wasn’t that much of a factor last season and as a matter of fact Abraham’s stats out weigh Dooms by a bit. I fully believe he pulled a fast one on the broncos and had a double dip in mind. I’ve been wrong often but only time will tell.

  • Pete Baron

    Seems like Elway is loving these “2 years left” type guys, so who knows. A rookie would rotate in with him, so by the time Abraham retires, we should have a stud DE.

    I don’t think Doom was a part of the shenanigans. Firing his agent clears his name, cause that agent’s career is now over, and he’d be throwing Doom under the bus and them backing up over him again if Doom really was involved and then fired him to clear his name.

  • Pete Baron

    Logic and common sense have no place in the NFL. Haha.

  • Cheyenne Kid

    Everbody is forgetting the dead wood players that will be released in near future. That will give us quite an addition in cap room. And there are now strict NFL guidelines on starting salaries for draft picks in their first year in league. And they may not even make the team even though we always hope they will. So keep this in mind. And tomorrow is supposed to be a much busier day at the NFL meetings regarding free agent activity. Just a little patience is all we have to have and watch it play out! And Peyton could make a difference if push came to shove!

  • Doom92

    The only way Elvis gets any of that money is if another team pays him less than that, which he wouldn’t go for I’m sure. It is simply “dead” money that counts against our cap space.

  • Doom92

    Really all around better???
    Abe – 10 sacks & 35 combined tkls with 6 forced fumbles.
    Doom – 11.5 sacks & 54 combined tkls with 6 forced fumbles…

    Better? Really?

  • Pete Baron

    He’s much better against the run Doom. Sometimes raw stats are misleading. I mean Matt Stafford threw for more yards than everyone but Drew Brees. Would you say he’s the 2nd best QB in the league cause his raw stats said so? So if I said Aaron Rogers, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady were better QBs, would you throw up Staffords stats to say “really? They’re better?” Lol.

    Abraham is better all around (meaning he may be just slightly less effective at sacking the QB, but he more than makes up for it with the running game presence and the ability to show up big time in big time moments).

    Look, I’m crossing my fingers that the Elvis deal gets enforced, but having Abraham as a plan B isn’t the worst thing in the world.

  • Doom92

    Well I know I dont have to tell you that you are comparing apples to… well any other fruit you chose, but you are. Even you know its not the same thing and the numbers simply do not support your claim that he is better over all. I like Abe, always have thought he was bad ass, but he is not a better player than Doom and doesnt have any upside that is “better”, as I said the only thing he has on him is age.

  • Pete Baron

    I know. And it’s dangerous to sign such an old player. When you get up the in NFL age, there’s no guarantee you’ll even be half the player you were the precious year.

    Man, I just want this drama over with. Time for the NFLPA to force the NFL to honor that contract and erase the dead money.

  • Doom92

    Me too brother-man… I got home from work about an hour ago and have been glued to the “Network” every since and they got nothing for me, bastards. All they can talk about this morning is Jennings and Bevis Island…lmao
