Ravens sign Dumervil

Elvis Dumervil is putting his seven seasons in Denver and one bizarre fax fiasco behind him after agreeing to a five-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Broncos football operations chief John Elway issued a statement Sunday saying the Broncos “worked diligently over the last week” to re-sign Dumervil but “are now moving forward without him.” Dumervil, 29, collected 63 1/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver, three of which ended with Pro Bowl berths. On March 15, Dumervil waffled but finally agreed to reduce his 2013 salary from $12 million to $8 million in Denver as part of a renegot- iated three-year, $30 million contract. But the paperwork didn’t reach the NFL offices in time and the Broncos were forced to release him to avoid having to pay him $12 million for next season. – AP
