Broncos have offer out to Elvis Dumervil. But looking at Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in event they cannot bring back Dumervil.
Elvis Dumervil reportedly has Miami Dolphins' interest

Free agent Elvis Dumervil has offers on the table from the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.
There soon could be a third legitimate suitor for the pass rusher's services.
The Miami Dolphins have "jumped into" the Dumervil sweepstakes, according to The Denver Post's Mike Klis.
It should be noted that there is no report of a third offer for Dumervil to consider. The Post previously reported that the Dolphins and Tennessee Titans have been in touch with Dumervil's agent. Klis acknowledges that the extent of Miami's interest is "unclear" at this juncture.
Don't expect the Broncos to up the ante as new teams enter the picture for Dumervil. They have veterans Dwight Freeney and John Abraham on speed dial as more cost-effective alternatives.
Elvis Dumervil 'wants to feel wanted' by next NFL team

With contract offers in hand from the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, Elvis Dumervil is going to make his money.
But Mike Klis of The Denver Post reported Friday that the free-agent pass rusher isn't fixated on breaking the bank. A league source familiar with the situation told the newspaper that wherever Dumervil winds up, "he wants to feel wanted."
On the heels of the outrageous fax-machine blunder that triggered his release from the Broncos, Dumervil is still smarting after being fired by the team he's played for since 2006.
That's one reason why he hasn't hopped on Denver's revised contract proposal, according to the source, who said the Broncos have offered him more than the Ravens. At least one other team -- the Miami Dolphins, according to Klis -- also has jumped into the race.
The attention is nice, but the source said Dumervil planned to "pray and sleep on his decision Friday night."
After a wild week, it's time to ponder what comes next.
Elvis Dumervil agrees to contract with Baltimore Ravens
Ravens agreed to terms with DE/OLB Elvis Dumervil, formerly of the Broncos, on a five-year contract worth up to $35M
The Broncos will try to replace Dumervil with Freeney, the former Indianapolis Colt and Peyton Manning teammate. Manning, who is now the Broncos' quarterback, turned 37 on Sunday but losing Dumervil to the Ravens may not be among his wishes.
Perhaps Freeney will be a nice consolation gift. Dumervil, 29, is four years younger than Freeney. And in the past two seasons, Dumervil has been more productive, registering 20˝ sacks to Freeney's 13˝ sacks in that period.
Dumervil vs Gilbert 2x/yr. Look out, Ben. Hope Gilbert shows vast improvement this year.
Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.
This is one reason Chadman can feel positive about the Haley offense- having these sorts of pass rushers coming after Ben- if the Steelers can add a good pass catching RB option, they could exploit the Ravens over-aggressiveness.
If the Steelers were still under Arians, not sure that they could exploit the Ravens at all.
