Agent says Elvis Dumervil getting interest
By Bill Williamson
It’s been more than 24 hours since the Elvis Dumervil fax fiasco, and there doesn’t seem to be a movement to repair the situation between the Denver Broncos and the pass-rusher.
Dumervil’s agent, Marty Magid, who was at the center of the debacle, told the Denver Post that he has been in contact with other teams and that Dumervil is expected to take some visits after the NFL owners meetings end in Arizona on Wednesday. That is risky, because the market will continue to dry up.
That means, as of now, Dumervil doesn’t have a great deal. Magid has also told the Miami Herald that Dumervil would like to play for his hometown Dolphins.
The fact that Magid is trying to drum up interest seems to be a sign that things are not close to being resolved with the Broncos. I know the Broncos are ticked at the situation. I wouldn’t be surprised if the team is put off by Magid jumping for other destinations instead of trying to help repair the situation he was ultimately responsible for in Denver.
If we see the Broncos make a quick run at a pass-rusher such as Dwight Freeney or John Abraham, we’ll have our answer.
In other AFC West notes:
Oakland might be on the verge of losing another starter. Tight end Brandon Myers is visiting the Giants, who are reportedly highly interested. He had 79 catches last season. Oakland has no experienced options at tight end on the roster if Myers walks.
The Giants signed linebacker Dan Connor. He visited the Raiders this week.
The Patriots are cutting receiver Brandon Lloyd. The former Bronco could make some sense in San Diego with new Chargers’ head coach Mike McCoy, who was previously the Broncos’ offensive coordinator.
UPDATE: The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens are interested in Dumervil.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Cincinnati cornerback Terence Newman left his Oakland visit without a deal.
