Elvis Dumervil on way out in Baltimore

Former Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith broke one piece of news this week when he reported that the 49ers were releasing Torrey Smith and the new member of the NFL Media team is back at it on Wednesday.

Smith passed along word that his former team will release his former teammate Elvis Dumervil.

Dumervil missed eight games with a foot injury last season and was set to make $6 million with an $8.375 million cap charge in 2017. The Ravens will get the $6 million back under the cap.

Dumervil had three sacks when he was in the lineup last season and had 32.5 over his first three seasons in Baltimore. Expecting him to be a full-time player at 33 is probably too much to ask, but those numbers should get him attention as a pass rushing addition once he’s officially on the open market.

UPDATE 2:50 p.m. ET: Dumervil has said goodbye to the Ravens.

    Great seeing the Ravens have to clean house in order to make room for a bottom 10 QB they vastly overpaid because of a lucky 4 game playoff stretch.

    I would take Doom back in Denver if Ware bails on us…

    He should have faxed the goodbye….

    Was he notified by fax?

    Heck of a guy but we need to get younger. This cut definitely stings a bit.

    I don’t even know if this stings, soiledfood. He was a recognizable name that came to Baltimore and didn’t live up to his reputation, in my opinion.
    I wish him all the best, but you said it “we need to get younger” stronger and faster.

    Von would love to have him back too. Elvis lost so much money in his fax snafu. I’d like to see him finish his career back in the fold on a team friendly deal.

    This was just a formality. He wasn’t earning his money so its time to go. No big loss for the Ravens.

    Welcome to the Seattle Seahawks!

    Welcome to foxboro Mr Dumervil, as part of the incoming physical exam we’ll need to get your ring size.

    He was notified of being cut via the fax machine.

    Not a surprise since we need the cap room and he became an expensive situational player. Would love to see Webb get the ax next. Would’ve been a smarter move to cut all the dead weight before the legal tampering period started, but oh well…
