Since firing his former agent, Elvis Dumervil has shown a desire to return to Denver. But the possibility of that happening seems to be fading.
Dumervil’s new agent, Tom Condon, teamed up with John Elway and approached the NFL, asking them to honor the contract restructure that Dumervil had agreed to but did not come to pass thanks to a fax machine blunder. Unfortunately, the league rejected the contract, keeping Dumervil a free agent.
With the league unwilling to honor the deal the team had agreed to with Dumervil, it appears unlikely that the team will continue pursuing Dumervil. As alternative options, the team is expected to consider free agent defensive ends John Abraham, Dwight Freeney, and Osi Umenyiora, per the Denver Post.
