Well, now we know why Peyton Manning was recruiting Dwight Freeney.
Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil could be leaving the building. (Groan.) According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the Broncos want Dumervil to take a pay cut. If he refuses the request that has not yet technically been made, he could be taking a hike.
Dumervil is due to earn a base salary of $12 million this season. If a deal that would involve Dumervil taking less can’t be worked out, perhaps the Broncos could replace him with Freeney.
The Colts have announced Freeney won’t be back. His agent technically isn’t eligible to talk to other teams until Saturday, March 9.
