If you are a conspiracy theorist, there is no other place you would rather be than in the Mile High City right now. The curious case of Elvis Dumervil vs. John Elway and the Denver Broncos has the city abuzz.
After the signing of Wes Welker earlier in the week, many Broncos’ fans were making travel arrangements to get to the Big Apple for the Super Bowl next February. Now those plans have been put on hold as fans scratch their heads and try to figure out what exactly happened on Friday.
About the only thing Bronco country can agree about, is there was no way Dumervil was worth the twelve million he was scheduled make this year. Even the reduction to eight million seemed a little sketchy.
Beyond that, there is a whole lot of finger pointing and cloak and dagger theories going on. The NFLPA now wants an investigation of the whole affair.
Probably the most amusing theory is that Peyton Manning lobbied Elway to get rid of Dumervil so they could bring in Manning’s old buddy...
