Elvis Dumervil said he was open to a restructured deal with the Denver Broncos this week. The defensive end is guaranteed $12 million if he's on the roster March 16 and the team wants that number lowered.
"Elvis is a Broncos and he wants to remain a Bronco," Dumervil's agent Marty Magid told Denver Post reporter Mike Klis. "We have exchanged proposals and we're waiting to hear back from them."
The two sides are in a time-crunch if they're going to get this thing done. The three-day negotiation period for free agents opened at midnight. If an agreement can't be reached, Dumervil will want to be released before prospective teams make other decisions.
