Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

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 [...]

UPDATE (3/15 4:30 PM EST): Not so fast, check this post here. Albert Breer of NFL Network was first to announce that Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil will be staying with the Broncos for the 2013 season (and much longer).

With Elvis Dumervil and the Broncos currently in a contract dispute, we figured the team would lean on Jason Hunter in 2013 if Dumervil left. Uh, about that. Turns out that Hunter, a free agent, has signed with the divisional rival Oakland Raiders.  Had he stayed in Denver, Hunter likely would have been a rotational [...]

It is widely expected that Dwight Freeney will land with the team, while Osi Umenyiora provides another option.  The team was also reportedly interested in Paul Kruger, who eventually landed in Cleveland to [...]

Quick hits from around the NFL… The Broncos first signing was locking up offensive guard Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million deal.  This is a curious signing because the team’s Week 1 starting guards in 2013—Chris Kuper and Zane Beadles—both received Pro Bowl recognition last season (as an alternate and reserve, respectively). Denver’s second order of business [...]

Between now and Saturday the 16th, something is going to happen with Elvis Dumervil.  The Denver Broncos have several options. On Saturday, Dumervil’s $12 million 2013 base salary will become fully guaranteed, and Denver has no intention of paying that much for his services.  The Broncos want Dumervil to take a pay cut and are threatening [...]

The discussion on defensive linemen couldn’t be more timely given the recent rumors of the Denver Broncos working with Elvis Dumervil to renegotiate his contract. Though whether this is legitimate or not has not been confirmed, from what I have gathered the Broncos would carry nearly $4-million in dead money on Dumervil for 2013 if [...]
