Found March 08, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Denver Broncos reached out to Elvis Dumervil's agent, Marty Magid, to discuss the defensive end's contract situation.  Magid said Dumervil is open to a restructure if it benefits both parties, but he is resistant to any scenario in which he takes a pay cut from his $12 million salary.  The Broncos would welcome a pay cut. The reality of the situation is both sides parted Thursday with no resolution. If the Broncos insist on a pay cut, Dumervil likely will be released and become a free agent. Dumervil won't be open to taking money off the table, especially when he probably can get close to his $12 million salary on the open market due to his game-changing ability. Dumervil's contract isn't fully guaranteed until the fifth day of the 2013 league year, which gives the Broncos about one week to mull their options. It also gives the team an opportunity to chase a replacement (perhaps Dwight Freeney) in the initial days of free agency without having to commit to Dumervil.
