(Steve Dykes/Getty Images) 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 to cut him if he doesn’t. Meanwhile, the team appears to be interested in Dwight Freeney and Osi Umenyiora as possible replacements.  Dumervil and his agent, Marty Magid, haven’t talked to the team since Friday, leading ProFootballTalk.com‘s Mike Florio to speculate that the team may be planning to move on without Dumervil. What Dumervil and Magid may hear is, “Thanks for the memories.”  Now that they know what Dumervil will take, the Broncos have been able to spend the last two days finding out whether they can sign Dwight Freeney or John Abraham or Cliff Avril or Osi Umenyiora or any other available pass rushers for substantially less that Dumervil is willing to take. An ideal situation for Denver would be trading Dumervil and signing a similarly productive rusher at a cheaper price tag.  Whether that will happen remains to be seen, but something—a pay cut, trade, or Dumervil’s contract being restructured—will likely happen by next weekend. On a different note, we passed along a report earlier today that the team is interested in New York’s Darrelle Revis.  The team is now emphatically denying that report through multiple media outlets.  Somebody is bluffing.
