Found March 20, 2013 on BroncoTalk:
Dwight Freeney (Getty Images) The Denver Broncos may be moving on without Elvis Dumervil. The fax fiasco that led to Dumervil’s release Friday has left the Broncos in need of a pass rushing right defensive end, and with an unanswered offer to Dumervil on the table, the Broncos are meeting with free agents Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, The Denver Post reports. Freeney, 33, has 13 1/2 sacks over the past two seasons. Abraham, 34, has 19 1/2 in that span. Dumervil had 20 1/2 the past two seasons. The report indicates he will begin lining up meetings by week’s end. While the Broncos may still be able to work something out with Doom, it looks more likely we’ll be seeing someone new lining up at right defensive end. Who would you prefer, Broncos fans?

Detroit Lions Should Explore Adding Elvis 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.
