Elvis Dumervil a Free Agent? Due to some paperwork not being done by 4PM EST, Broncos pash rusher Elvis Dumervil has become a free agent.

He’s now a free agent and it’ll be interesting to see if some other team steps up with a fat offer to steal him away. It could be a very costly mistake for the Broncos defense. - 3/15
