Well, well, well. It seems talks between the Denver Broncos and defensive end Elvis Dumervil have hit that dreaded “impasse.” The Denver Post’s Mike Klis reports there has been no communication between the Broncos and Dumervil since Friday.
Impasse? After only 48 hours? Okay, perhaps it’s a bit too dramatic of a word to use, but here is fact: With a March 16 deadline, things do need to pick up—and soon. Dumervil, however, reportedly wants resolution by Tuesday afternoon when free agency officially begins.
The Broncos want to cut Dumervil’s pay. He’s slated to make $12 million 2013, and that amount is guaranteed if he remains on the roster come Saturday. Dumervil’s agent, Marty Magid, said late last week the defensive end was opening to “restructuring.”
If no deal is reached, the Broncos could trade or release Dumervil.
If you’re an above average free agent, there’s likely a rumor out there the Denver Broncos are “interested” in you. We’re led to believe everyone who’s anyone is “on the Broncos’ radar.”
Luckily the interest carousel will end soon. Good, because I’m getting dizzy with all the posturing.
