That's way too late!
I had mentioned before that if it was me, I would have set the deadline for Dumervil's agent to send in the agreement a day in advance, at least.

Well then he would have been cut, because they didn't come to an agreement until the day of this fiasco. You can't force a contract on a player, so I don't really see how they could have made this happen. Dumerville and his agent knew the deadline was the time the 12m guarantee kicked in.

It really doesn't matter in the longrun though, they could easily come to terms on a deal that would pay Elvis 8m this year, and have the exact same caphits as they would have before the cut. Whether or not they are willing to do that is the real question.

March 6th was the first I heard off that the Broncos wanted Dumervil to take a pay cut per NFL Network's Albert Breer.

It really doesn't matter when; in fact, Elway probably had everything ready before the start of free agency to get the initial proposal to Dumervil's agent.
And he probably did just that.

Can he set the deadline for the final answer a day ahead of the cut-off date by the league. I don't see why not.
But he didn't.

Right there is the fail.

Ozzie Newsome is the best GM in the NFL.

Plus all the comp picks they'll get next year for all the free agents they lost this offseason. Dumervil's contract is even cheaper than the one Kruger got from Cleveland. I just laugh at the people that think the Ravens are going to stink now because of Flacco's contract and the free agents they lost. Ozzie Newsome is no dummy.

They'll probably have one average season and then go back to being contenders. The AFC North could be pretty weak this year though, so they could win it again.

Ravens have received the most compensatory picks since they started giving them out- because people want the Ravens players.

Have you looked at the roster lately?

The Ravens defense actually got younger, which is what they were going to do anyway before the won the Super Bowl.

Agree but it'll take a year to get the younger players to gel. You can't get rid of that much front-line talent and not take a bit of a hit.

I completely agree with Ozzie Newsome and think the man is a genius...and everything I've ever wanted in a GM...

He made the tough decisions that most (especially my Titans) would never have the balls to make until it was too late.
