Dumervil in demand after blunder saw him released by Denver.
According to the Denver Post, the Baltimore Ravens have offered pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil a contract, although there is still an offer on the table from the Denver Broncos.
The Post also suggest that the Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans have joined the race, while there is some interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Broncos have offered their former player a more front-loaded contract, but have seen their financial position tighten because of the $4.9m dead-money salary cap hit they suffered after a fax and communication blunder saw Dumervil released.
The two parties had agreed on a restructured contract, but the player’s agent failed to get the paperwork to the team by the NFL Deadline last Friday. Denver were subsequently forced to release him, but Dumervil has since parted company with his agent Marty Magid.
As a result, they may have to free up space for him by splitting with other players, but they do have a back-up plan in Dwight Feeney and John Abraham.
However, they are likely to face competition as sources told the paper that Ravens coach John Harbaugh is interested in adding a pass-rusher to his roster and the list drawn up by the franchise includes Dumervil.
With several players futures in the air this off-season, there could well be a domino effect once a deal is made for the 29-year-old.
Dumervil had 11 sacks last season, second on the Broncos team behind Von Miller. He led the league with 17 sacks back in 2009, and as a result will be in the midst of a scramble for his signature in the coming weeks.
