OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Elvis Dumervil says he left the Denver Broncos for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens because he was looking to play for a winner in a different city.
Dumervil passed his physical and signed a five-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday. The 6-foot, 260-pounder was introduced at a news conference in which he said, “Going to a winning organization was important.”
He had said nothing bad about his former team. It’s just that he was ready to leave after a fax snafu led to his release from the Broncos.
Dumervil says, “I just felt it was a time to change scenery.”
The Ravens welcomed him after an offseason in which they lost free agents Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe and Cary Williams.

In this edition of “Football Nation Today,” Alex talks about the latest news around the NFL:1st Down: The Ravens, seemingly strapped for cash all offseason, purged and signed Elvis Dumervil to a $35 million contract with $12 million guaranteed late last week.

The Baltimore Ravens took an improbable route to the Super Bowl in January before defeating the San Francisco 49ers to claim the Lombardi Trophy, but that accomplishment hasn't pushed them any closer to being the AFC's darling team in 2013.
