The big news out of Denver earlier today was that the Denver Broncos and defensive end Elvis Dumervil were able to negotiate a restructured contract that would allow him to continue to play in Denver, but only cost the organization $8 million this year, as opposed to the $12 million he was owed. It appears that will not be the case, as Dumervil failed to get his signed agreement to the team before the 2PM MT deadline, which would make the $12 million guaranteed.
