Elvis Dumervil: Cut After Broncos Botch Fax

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Dumervil's restructured contract was faxed after Friday's 4:00 pm eastern deadline, and the Broncos consequently released Dumervil despite the agreed pay cut, Denver Post writer Mike Klis.

Recommendation: The Broncos somehow were seven minutes late on the paperwork, and they had to either guarantee Dumervil's 2013 contract or release him on the spot. Despite the team's hard fought negotiation victory over a pay cut, it all turned out to be for nothing. Dumervil could still re-sign with the team, but the maneuver will be more difficult at this point, both because the cap mechanics aren't quite the same and because other teams can get in on the bidding.
