Dumervil Wants $65 Million Reasons to Stay in Denver


The Broncos have a tough decision to make for their long-term future with All-Pro LB Elvis Dumervil. Seems that according to today’s Denver Post, Dumervil is looking for a massive payday from his current team, in the area of $65 million, $40 mil of which is guaranteed.

Only a committed future separates the Broncos from Elvis Dumervil. Dumervil, Denver’s all-pro pass-rushing linebacker, signed his first- and third-round restricted free-agent tender Monday, ensuring that he will play for no less than $3.168 million this season, two NFL sources confirmed. Had he not signed his tender in protest of not getting a multiyear contract from the Broncos, Dumervil’s salary could have been reduced to about $630,000. After leading the NFL with 17 sacks last year, and recording 43 sacks in four years while making a combined $2.015 million, Dumervil is hoping to be among the league’s five highest-paid pass rushers. That would mean a multiyear contract worth at least $65 million, with the guaranteed portion about $40 million.
