Elvis Dumervil's trek into free-agent waters is getting under way.
NFL Network's Michelle Beisner reported on Saturday that interest in the former Denver Broncos' defensive end was sparse at the inital outset of his move to free agency, but Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun later reported the market is picking up, with several clubs eyeing Dumervil.
One of those clubs is the Baltimore Ravens, who have Dumervil "firmly" on their radar, according to Wilson. The Ravens hope to meet with him after next week's NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix. Without an agent, contract talks are on hold, but the Ravens reportedly have "serious" interest.
Wilson also reported that the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans have been poking around. All three teams make sense as potential Dumervil landing spots. He also has shown genuine interest in the Miami Dolphins.
If the Broncos attempt to re-sign Dumervil, it won't be for the $8 million per year he agreed to prior to his release. Dumervil isn't about to command that kind of cash on the open market, but it's no shock to see suitors beginning to hover.
