If the Denver Broncos are unable to reach a restructured
agreement with Elvis Dumervil, they could trade or even release him and use
veteran Dwight Freeney as a fallback option, according to Mike Klis of The
Dumervil’s current contract includes a clause that states
his $12 million salary for the 2013 campaign becomes fully guaranteed on the
fifth day of the new league year, which is March 16. For this reason, Denver
has a limited amount of time to get something done with him.
If a restructured deal is not agreed upon, the Broncos could
attempt to trade Dumervil or even release him. If they wind up parting ways
with the talented defender, they would look to acquire another pass rusher. Freeney would certainly be a candidate, as he could potentially reunite with
Peyton Manning in Denver.
Freeney struggled to convert to the 3-4 last season, as his overall
production declined. But Klis notes that there is some thought that the Broncos
would be better off with the veteran at a reduced rate rather than playing
Dumervil $12 million in 2013.
