Maybe you heard? The Broncos and defensive end Elvis Dumervil were in negotiations to decrease his salary so he could stay with the team. Sounds reasonable.
The deadline, 4:00 p.m. ET, approached and the sides finally came to an agreement. Only one problem: Dumervil didn’t FAX (ahh, technology) the papers over in time. Dumervil’s agent has reportedly placed the blame on the Broncos.
The mistake caused the Broncos to take a $4.7 million hit against the salary cap and Dumervil is now an unrestricted free agent.
