No signs of progress between Broncos, Elvis Dumervil

NFL_dumervil2_250.jpgGiven that the Denver Broncos reached a long-term deal recently with guard Chris Kuper, some have wondered whether the team will soon work out a new contract with linebacker Elvis Dumervil, the 2010 NFL sack leader.

Based on coach Josh McDaniels’ comments from Monday, it doesn’t sound like anything is coming soon.

“[W]e’ll be in communication with [agent] Gary [Wichard] and keep working towards what we’re all [striving towards],” McDaniels.  “It’s hard to gauge [the status].  You have conversations with him and sometimes they feel better than others, but ultimately nobody really cares until it gets done.  When it gets done, it progresses really fast and everybody is content with the result and when it’s not done, while you’re working on it, everybody can say what they want.  We’re going to continue to work.  We know what we want and we know what they want and we’re trying to make it happen.”

Dumervil has reported for offseason workouts without signing his one-year, $3.17 million tender.  Next Tuesday, the team could drop the offer to 110 percent of his 2009 base salary in the amount of $540,980.

    That’s a Donkey textbook tackle in the pic.

    How do you know he will be the 2010 sack leader, future boy?

    This guy has one year wonder written all over him. I dont blame the Broncos for not being willing to give a big deal after one good year. Lets see how he does this year and then I could see it

    Elvis has been good since he came into the league his rookie year, he’s a slightly smaller version of James Harrison

    You obviously know nothing about Dumervil and the Broncos….. question for ya moron. Since being drafted in 2006 who has more sacks? Number one overall draft pick Mario Williams or Dumervil who was drafted 29th…. in the forth round?
    Yeah… he’s a real one year wonder. Loser.

    i love how players wanna get paid for what they have done in the past.
    its like one big season = HUGE CONTRACTS
    NFL contracts should be nothing but incentive laden.
    have big money stipulations in the agreement so if a player sux, TO BAD you get paid for what you do.
    if a player is nasty ALL RIGHT you get paid for what you do.
    Its like Rookies get paid for what they did in college even though they haven’t played a down of real football yet.
    have a set pay with gauranteed money but nothing crazy & then add a price value to each sack recorded or # of touchdowns or tackles made.
    call it the Jamarcus Russle / Ricky Manning Rule.
    one more thing / how is Jake Delhomme still in the NFL?

    One year wonder only because he’s on a horrible team.
    And the tackle is fine. His hand is on the shoulder pads. The angle just makes your blind ass think it’s on the facemask. Get a better monitor.

    The 30% rule makes it pretty tough to get a deal done for Dumervil. I think there are going to be more free agents next March than at the beginning of any season in the history of the NFL, assuming there’s not a lockout or a strike and a new CBA is agreed upon.
    The uncapped year rules resulted in over 200 restricted free agents that would have been able to sign as unrestricted free agents under the old rules. Combine that with owners that are hesitant to spending a lot of money on signing bonuses when there may be no football next year, and GMs that want to see what the next salary cap is before committing to a lot of large, long term contracts, and 2011 is shaping up to be a free agent free for all.

    One year wonder, right?!! What an ignorant statement. How about 43 sacks in 4 years in the NFL. Check your facts, Elvis Dumervil 4th round pick has more sacks then 1rst round 1rst selection Mario Williams despite his first couple of seasons where Dumervil was just a situational pass rusher (for those of you who are too dumb, which is most that have commented so far that means he was on the field a whole lot less than Mario Williams was).
    Elvis Dumervil 43 career sacks
    Mario Williams 39.5 career sacks.
    Don’t give me any nonsense about a one year wonder stuff since he averages almost ten sacks a season and has more sacks than a number one pick (and yes they were drafted in the same year) .

    One year wonder?
    The stupidity on this website knows no bounds.
    I mistakenly thought only Fish, Pats and Giant fans were this stupid. I stand corrected.

    Sounds a lot like the Brandon Marshall negotiations, and Dumervil has no on field or off field issues the Broncos can blame this one on. For whatever reason they don’t seem to want to pay market price for their star players.
    If it doesn’t get done the message it sends to other Bronco players, that it’s all about “team” and being a “team player”, is nothing but empty McDaniels words. Dumervil is the ultimate team player and if they treat him this way (refusing to pay him fairly, as they did to Marshall) they’ll treat anyone this way. It will have a negative effect for some time.
    And before anyone mentions that he makes $3M a year and he should be happy, remember that everything is relative. By comparison he is underpaid for his position and his performance.
