Elvis Dumervil Agrees To Pay Cut, Stays With Broncos

It came down to the final minutes, but Elvis has not left the building. That’s right, Elvis Dumervil has agreed to take a pay cut and remain with the Denver Broncos for his eighth season in the NFL.

John Fox and John Elway were having their “Plan B” meeting at 1:25 p.m. when contract man Mike Sullivan walked in telling them that Dumervil would play for less than $12 million this season, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Relief to the Broncos’ ears, now the team doesn’t have to search for a passing rushing defensive end. That also squashes the idea that Dumervil could wind up with the Patriots or with another AFC rival.

The 5’11,” 260-pound end out of Louisville had 11 sacks, 54 tackles, and 6 forced fumbles in 2012.

The Broncos went 13-3 last season, but they’re starting this season 1-0. Count free agency as one massive win.
