Vic Lombardi of CBS4 reports that the Denver Broncos are expected to approach DE Elvis Dumervil regarding a pay cut that would reduce his $12 million salary for the 2013 season.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports adds that there’s a chance that this “situation could end up with his release.“
Dumervil, 29, has yet to meet with the Broncos regarding this matter. He has base salaries of $10 million and $8.19 million coming his way in 2014 and 2015, which comes out to around $31 million over the next three seasons.
Lombardi adds that the Broncos will likely ask him to agree to “similar money over 4-5 years.“
Releasing him would require the Broncos to pay him $4.869 million.
Dumervil can obviously be an effective pass rusher for them, but he’s nowhere near the complete player that Von Miller is. He has a considerable amount of money coming his way, but was rated as a below average defensive end last season by Pro Football Focus.
We should know more regarding the situation in the days leading up to free agency.
