According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos ended up releasing linebacker Elvis Dumervil after all.  The paperwork that his agent had to send over, wasn’t faxed in time. Hold on, contract not filed in time. Elvis Dumervil has been officially released — Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 15, 2013 Peter Burns of FOX Sports Radio tweeted a break down of what happened. #Faxgate timeline: #Broncos gave Dumervil’s agent 1pm hard deadline. 1p passed, team decides to focus on next step….. — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 #Faxgate timeline: 1:25p. Dumervil agent contacts #Broncos, accepts deal. #Broncos tell him you’ve got 35 minutes. FAX IT NOW — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 #Faxgate Timeline: 1:25p+ #Broncos staring at Fax Machine….NOTHING. They are not happiest of campers…. — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 #Faxgate Timeline: T-Minus mere minutes before 2p – Agent says, On it’s way……. — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 #Faxgate timeline: 1:59pm: #Broncos STEAMING, have to cut Dumervil at 1:59 to protect from old contract….. — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 #Faxgate timeline: 2:06p. #Broncos finally receive contract from Dumervil’s agent with 2:06p timestamp. #Broncos LIVID — Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsRadio) March 15, 2013 I would love to know why it took Dumervil’s agent so long to get the fax sent over.  He may cost his client millions of dollars becuse by the look of free agency I’m not sure he’s going to get $8 million this season from any team.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
