No way Dumerville can get 8 mill in this market now. So really, Dumerville and co. should look incompetent
I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him get 5 years 40 million with a 10-12m signing bonus. He will get paid if he goes elsewhere, there are a lot of teams with capspace that need pass rushers. The Colts, Browns, Jags, Packers, Vikes, Bengals all have plenty of space left. Several of those teams could really use a pass rusher. Elvis can play 43 DE or 34 OLB, so I think he will have a good market.
