Last Friday, the Denver Broncos cut defensive end Elvis Dumervil to add to an already loaded DE market that includes former Indianapolis Colts defensive end/linebacker Dwight Freeney. Freeney(107.5) and Dumervil (63.5) have combined for 171 sacks in their career, and both players are being pursued by a pair of AFC North teams:

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, the Steelers, Ravens, and Broncos remain in play for both players.  Currently, Dumervil’s decision is expected to come down to Baltimore and Denver.  Whichever of that duo doesn’t get Dumervil becomes likely to land Freeney, with the Steelers as the possible alternative destination.

The Ravens have reportedly made an offer to Dumervil.

The thought of either of those players joining the North is a scary thought, but given the amount of talent lost by the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, both clubs could use the help. The Steelers are trying to replace James Harrison (64 career sacks), while the Ravens are trying to replace three starting linebackers in Dannell Ellerbe, Ray Lewis, and Paul Kruger.

    Lets see the Steeler’s cut Harrison because of money and we are to believe they are trying to get Elvis or Dwight? No way there isn’t any room under the cap. Where do they find these writters who make things up as they go?
