LOL-a few minutes later:
@AdamSchefter: Elvis Dumervil agreed to salary reduction, smartly. Remains in Denver.
@MikeKlis: Hold on, contract not filed in time. Elvis Dumervil has been officially released
@MikeKlis: I'm serious. Contract was not filed by 1:59 p.m. Elvis Dumervil informed Broncos he was taking the new deal at 1:25.
@MikeKlis: Broncos didn't get fax with Elvis Dumervil signature on contract until 2:07 p.m. -- 7 minutes and 1 second past the deadline!
@MikeKlis: Broncos could still sign Elvis Dumervil but there are salary cap implications. Not that simple
@Jeff_Legwold: Dumervil's release gives #Broncos huge dead money hit. Limits ability to bring him back with a "new'' deal.
@adbrandt: Dumervil, if cut, will not be resigned, makes no sense. Team will take a big hit on dead money upon release.
@Deadspin: Elvis Dumervil agreed to stay with the Broncos, but his contract wasn't faxed in time: http://t.co/6ZZmhcIRZQ
@adbrandt: Not sure what happened w/Dumervil contract but know the NFL has always been strict about contract submission by 4pm et.
@adbrandt: Not sure who is Dumervil agent. Was represented by Gary Wichard, longtime agent who passed away in 2011.
