Elvis Dumervil was cut from Denver.

Sign him, and put him opposite of Clay Matthews and the front 7 will be MUCH improved.

"Broncos have released Dumervil after they did not get his paperwork regarding the reduction in salary from $12 million to $8 million until after the 2 p.m. MT deadline that made his original salary guaranteed."


Would he still be expecting $8 million?

My expectation would be yes.

CBS Sports had a story on it where the Broncos have had to take a $5M Cap hit because of the release, and they're unlikely to be able to re-sign him any where close to the $8M (unless it's all signing bonuses?).

CBS Sports said:
So, what happens now? Can't the team and Dumervil just come back together and agree to a completely new deal that restores his $8 million salary? It might not be that easy.

According to spotrac.com, Dumervil's dead-money hit to the salary cap is now nearly $5 million. That money remains whether Dumervil is on the team or not. Theoretically, the team could give Dumervil a new deal and put most of the money into a signing bonus, which the Broncos could then spread across the length of the deal for cap purposes.

But another $8 million contract for this year just doesn't seem likely. It appears Dumervil just lost a ton of money.

Not signing Jennings, and cutting Finley would yield enough for Dumervil

Is it written anywhere that Rodgers, Matthews, or Raji need to be resigned this year? Hell, if Raji doesn't pick up his game, don't know if he should even be resigned.

With Jennings, Finley, and Driver gone, the receiving corps will be depleted. Just three guys.
Tedford will have to draft.

I think Dumervil is the guy to get.

Dumervil would be interesting. Fine pass rusher but below average at stopping the run

Dumervil is a pass rush specialist ... kind of like KGB. Could be very helpful, but we can't pass rush both OLB every snap...

Which OLB would be dropping back into coverage? Dumervil or Matthews?

Unless the Packers stay in the nickel 2-4 (with OLB moved up) which is basically a 4-2 with stand up 4-3 DEs.
And the Packers could make it a 4-3 with stand up 4-3 DEs with Dumervil and Perry at the DEs with Matthews at LB.

But they would have to stop the run out of that... which they haven't been able to do even in the 3-4 look...

It could work... but they would need to another great OL clogger to go with Pickett (Raji can at times) ...

And someone to help Dumervil against the run.

Most likely not gonna happen...
