NFL News: Elvis Dumervil Signs Extension With Denver Broncos

The pass rushing linebacker will be in Denver for a few more years.

Dumervil and the Broncos agreed to a 6-year $61.5 million contract extension with between $41 and $43 million in guaranteed money.

Dumervil was a restricted free agent this offseason and signed his tendered contract last month but kept working with the team on a long term deal, something that obviously worked out for him.

“I am pleased to announce the extension of Elvis Dumervil’s contract with the Denver Broncos,” general manager Brian Xanders said in a statement. “He has established himself as one of the NFL’s premier pass rushers, and he’s an important part of the foundation we are building with this team. We are excited to have him as an integral part of the Broncos well into the future.”

Dumervil led the league in sacks last season with 17. Since coming into the NFL only DeMarcus Ware and Jared Allen have more sacks than Dumervil.
