Both Freeney and Abraham were in Denver on Thursday, and both left without a deal, a source familiar with the situation told NFL Network's Michelle Beisner.

The Broncos still would prefer to keep Dumervil, and's Ian Rapoport reiterated on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" that Freeney and Abraham are backup plans. Dumervil, however, reportedly was not impressed with the Broncos' post-fax offer.

We'll see where this goes.
