Dumervil agrees to a 5 year contract worth up to 35 million. 1 million base in year one along with a 7.5 million signing bonus. Guaranteed 12 million and a 3.5 million injury guarantee on next year's option bonus.
"Firmly on the Ravens Radar" as reported by multiple sources. http://fansided.com/...several-others/
Supposedly meeting with the Ravens towards the end of next week following the owner's meetings. (Deleted Text)
Guy is 29 and won't be 30 till January. He has been consistent in the pass rushing department since he begun his career. Had his career high 17 sacks when the Broncos were running the 3-4. I know after his transition to 4-3 he declined a little (still has a lot of success) but I think Von Miller coming in really helped him succeed in the 4-3. The only question I would have is how well he will do on the left side as he has played right his whole career.
I hope we sign him. His price tag won't be near what the Broncos were going to pay him according to reports (plus he is likely to sue his agent). He has 3-4 experience and played his best in that scheme. I'd estimate anywhere from 4-7 million per year. He and Suggs would make a scary duo.
EDIT: His agent had the right to waive the 5 day waiting period (and did so), meaning Dumervil is free to hire a new agent as soon as he wants. https://twitter.com/AlbertBreer
I wonder if this could bump up his visit to Baltimore.
EDIT: http://www.nfl.com/n...umervil Ravens reportedly offered Dumervil a contract. He was not thrilled by the Broncos front-loaded offer (as it probably included much less money then his initial contract plus gives them the ability to cut him at a later date). According to sources the Ravens offer was more spread out. Waiting for details.
EDIT: http://www.nfl.com/n...-to-feel-wanted Ravens reportedly offered less money than the Broncos, but guarantee more. He said it's not about the money but he wants to feel wanted by his new team which is why he hasn't accepted the Broncos offer. He said he would sleep on it Friday night. Dolphins are also making a move.
EDIT: Klis reported on Saturday night that Dumervil will wait one more day to decide on the Ravens or Broncos (made no mention of Miami).
