    Donks Screw Up, Lose Dumervil

    Man, that's got to be embarrassing.


    Now he's on the open FA market. Too bad we didn't have cap room...we could bring him in and go to a 4-3.

    To land a pass rusher? Sure. Why re-work all these guys for clowns like DJ, Speath, Gradkowski, etc?

    If they are going to do it, make it worthwhile.

    I can't argue with that logic, that's for sure. At this point, I'd use draft picks as the backups and depth and hope they develop and just have these guys as camp bodies for a bit, including a backup quarterback.

    it was my understanding that dumervils agent screwed up, possibly on purpose.

    definitely two sides to this story.

    My fax machine is in the closet. I fall out of my chair when someone wants me to fax something. If it needs a signature, I print it, sign it, scan it, email it. That is a pain too. Why can't an email be good enough of a confirmation? Some elements of the NFL are really behind the times. He didn't _fax_ it in time. <shaking head> Reminds me of Jerry McGuire.

    The Broncos apparently.

    Rumor is Dumervil went to a Kinkos to do this. LOL

    If you have a potential $8 million investment on the line, you allow his agent to submit the contract via fax? If I'm running the team, I send a rep to receive it in person--and make sure it's done on time.
