Free agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil will see what the rest of the market has to offer after being less than pleased with the contract proposal he recently received from the Denver Broncos. While the Broncos remain hopeful of reaching an agreement with Dumervil, they are lining up alternatives, as the team is set to host free agent defensive ends Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com. Freeney and Abraham are scheduled to visit with the Broncos today. Denver would appear to prefer Dumervil, but they seem adamant about adding a defensive end one way or another this offseason. Freeney and Abraham were both cut from their former clubs earlier this offseason; Freeney by the Indianapolis Colts and Abraham by the Atlanta Falcons. They are viewed as fallback options if the Broncos are unable to reach an agreement with Dumervil. While the Broncos begin to host other defensive ends, Dumervil could start visiting prospective suitors in the next few days. The Baltimore Ravens, Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the teams that have reportedly expressed interest in the free agent.

Rumor Mill: Denver Has Made a Higher Offer to Dumervil than Baltimore

Per Les Shapiro of Denver’s ESPN Station 102.3, The Broncos have made a higher offer to bring back Elvis Dumervil than what is currently on the table from the Baltimore Ravens.  This is pretty unfounded at this point, so it comes down to how good of a source Les has.  That said, it appears the organization is holding to their word that they’re intent on keeping Doom in the...

Report: Elvis Dumervil Gets Contract Offer From Ravens, But Broncos Still Offering Reduced Deal

The Broncos are still in the mix for the defensive end and “have offered more money in the early...

Broncos, Dumervil still in talks

Somehow, through it all, the Denver Broncos and Elvis Dumervil are still on speaking terms. The fax machine relationship clearly wasn’t working.

Dumervil...

The Patriots out on Dwight Freeney?

The Patriots had Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in for a visit just about a week ago today. The visits didn't result in any signings, and both moved on to meet with the Denver Broncos today.
