We could sign Dumervil and it wouldn't be that big of a cap hit this year, just like Wallace wasn't that big of a cap hit to the Dolphins. It would come after this year, so it's very possible!
even if we could afford dumervil, which we can't, the steelers are better served in finding out exactly what they have in woirlds.
I'm not real confident, but hopefully he proves me wrong and really blossoms into a great player. This roster could certainly use it.
yea, im sure he wanted to turn down 8-10 million and play for a superbowl contender so hew could sign for a couple million from a team heading towards the bottom of the afc north
woulnd't touch elvis. coming out of college, i had him in every mock i did - as a fan of the CArds, i was well aware of his ridiculous pass-rush ability and thought he'd be a good OLB project. Today, he's too pricey to be a project... he's better with his hand in the dirt as a DE

Ravens after Elvis Dumervil?

The champion Baltimore Ravens have lost some big names this offseason, and they're trying to do something about it at the expense of the Denver Broncos.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have made their interest known to free-agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil, who was cut by the Broncos in a fax snafu last week.
Dumervil does not have a visit to Baltimore scheduled, but GM Ozzie Newsome reached out to the player's agent immediately after he was cut, the Sun reported. That agent, Marty Magid, has since been fired by Dumervil after the necessary paperwork for his reworked contract didn't make it to the league office in time.
The Broncos have already made an offer to bring Dumervil back into the fold. He had agreed to reduce his salary from $12 million to $8 million for next season.
Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010. He had 11 sacks last season, second on the team behind Von Miller. Dumervil led the league with 17 sacks in 2009.
Baltimore has released defensive back Bernard Pollard and guard Bobbie Williams, traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the 49ers, lost linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger in free agency and watched linebacker Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk retire. Safety Ed Reed has reportedly agreed to a three year contract with the Texans.
