STATEMENT FROM DENVER BRONCOS EVP OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS JOHN ELWAY

“As we have from the start of this process, we worked diligently over the last week to find a way for Elvis Dumervil to remain a Denver Bronco. Although we made multiple contract offers to Elvis after being forced to release him, we were unable to reach an agreement and are now moving forward without him.

“Elvis was a team captain and a talented player who made a great impact during his seven seasons in Denver. I appreciate all of his effort on the field and the work he did in the community.

“I wish Elvis all the best as he continues his NFL career.”
 

*****

Dumervil played all seven of his NFL seasons with the Broncos, totaling the seventh-most sacks (63.5) in franchise history while making three Pro Bowl squads (2009, ‘11-12). In 91 regular-season games (75 starts), he also recorded 264 tackles (193 solo), one interception (27 yds.), 12 passes defensed, 17 forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries. He added six tackles (4 solo), 1.5 sacks (14.5 yds.) and one forced fumble in three career postseason starts.

Dumervil finished second on the Broncos with 11.5 sacks in 2012 and tied for the team lead with a career-best six forced fumbles to earn his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection. He posted 9.5 sacks in 2011, rebounding from a 2010 campaign in which he spent the year on injured reserve due to a torn pectoral. 

In his fourth season in 2009, he led the NFL with a then-team-record 17 sacks to earn first-team All-Pro recognition from the Associated Press in addition to being selected to his first career Pro Bowl.

Selected by the club in the fourth round (126th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft from the University of Louisville, Dumervil registered a team-high 8.5 sacks (56.5) in his first season. That total ranked third among league rookies and tied for the third-most by a rookie in Broncos history.

Dumervil started for two seasons at Louisville, where he led the nation with 20 sacks in 2005 as a first-team All-American, Bronko Nagurski Award winner (nation’s best defensive player) and the Big East Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

He attended Jackson High School in Miami, where he totaled a school-record 78 sacks during his prep career and was a two-time all-state selection. Dumervil was born on Jan. 19, 1984.
