In six seasons in Denver (2010 doesn’t count due to injury), Elvis Dumervil missed just five games.
His breakout season in Denver came in 2009 when he recorded 17 sacks, 49 tackles and four forced fumbles. That is quite the résumé for a player in one season.
In his rookie season, he recorded 8.5 sacks in 13 games. He played along the defensive line as well as linebacker in Denver.
Dumervil made the Pro Bowl in 2009, 2011 and 2012 with the Broncos.
Dumervil’s time with the team, unfortunately, took a twist during the free agency period of 2012.
The Broncos wanted to sign him to a contract, but there was an issue with the fax machine. All of a sudden, Dumervil was a free agent.
Dumervil became a free agent for the fourth time in the 2018 offseason. It would be cool to see him back in a Broncos uniform for one final ride with an NFL team. However, he is 34-years-old now.
The Broncos don’t appear to be interested in signing him.
He has had a solid career despite being undersized at 5-foot-11, 257 lbs. His lack of size caused him to drop to the second day of the draft back in 2006 (before the NFL Draft was three days in length) when the Broncos took him in the fourth round, 126th overall.
