    The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports Elvis Dumervil's agent intends to call the Dolphins because the DE would like to play for Miami.

    With all these guys wanting to play here, they need to start coming at bargain prices if they want to be apart of this allstar team!

    I would love this. Focus the draft on DB, OT, TE and RB

    Nothing will get done until this whole Long drama is over. Which could hurt us but I would absolutely love this guy on our team.

    If they both took team friendly deals I suppose if you restructure Starks and cut some Cbs or maybe Bess you could sign Long and Dumervile.

    I imagine thats a big if though, youd need them both to play for 7

    This will be a tricky one, Elvis is going to want something around 9 million a year.

    IF Miami mans up and shows some guts by signing him. It's going to be fun watching that defense on Sundays!!! Dumervil is EXACTLY what the Doctor ordered. He has alot of incentive to want to come back home to Florida. I hope it happens!!!

    I like the dude's motor but he is very undersized for a 4-3 DE. But if they could get him for 2 yrs/12M he'd be affordable for us and they could guarantee the entire amount he was planning to get in his original Denver contract.

    My conjecture from the day they originally had met an impass may actually happen... Could this get any sicker...wake,solia,Starks,dumerville with Vernon and odrick rotating and two new aggressive lbs blitzing.... This front 7 would be nasty and how u could get away w a few rookies starting cb. Then sign Winston instead of long for the reduced price. Cap is good and we are loaded with 5 early draft picks to solidify cb, cb, te, og, best avail between wr,fs,rb,ot

    If we cut Patterson we should have 14 million of spending money. Give Dumervil a 3 year 22.5 million which is 7.5 million a year (Cliff Avril Money) then sign Winston 3 year 15 million dollars.

    Then draft DB/TE/OG

    We can cut Carpenter and draft hopkins to save enough money. We can also cut Daniel thomas and draft gacy at #12. there are many ways to get this done.

    that defense would be outstanding...:brewskis:

    Get Dumervil now and let Long sit on his offer. We can always draft a good Tackle this year or sign Winston. Cut Patterson and Binns if need be for the cap space. There are plenty of good corners in the draft but I would like to sign a cheap FA CB as well. Hopefully the money works out???

    Wake and dumervil would be a QB nightmare....and sell a few more tickets...are you listening Mr Ross? We can cut some of the marginal and mediocre players to get this stud... make this happen.

    I forgot about cutting Carpenter. If we cut caprenter and patterson we should be able to sign both Elvis and Long

    How do you restructure the franchise tag? lol

    But if he wants 9 mill, no thanks. Take a look at what the younger guys are getting who actually had good years last year, he deserves within that ballpark

    I'm not sure how the cap situation would work but in my opinion, I am willing to part ways with Soliai to bring in Elvis. I mean the guy is on the final year of his contract, going to make 5.7 million. We can play a lineup of Wake, Starks, Odrick and Elvis. Won't be a popular opinion but I think that lineup is too dangerous to pass up.

    I've always admired Dumervil, because he excelled inspite of his size. He's been successful at both ROLB and RDE and would fit in well with Coyles Hybrid Schemes. He's from South Florida and may be willing to take a little less due to the no state income tax situation in Florida.

    Can you imagine what him and Wake will do to the QBs in this league??? It's been awhile since we've had 2 double-digit sack artists on this team. We need an elite Pass rusher more than we need an average, aging, injury-prone, Tackle!!!

    Wanna give Wake IMMEDIATE help and draft a mid-round PR DE to develop? Sign Dumervil Jeff and that's what can happen.

    It's possible to extend Soliai and get a long term deal done with Starks to gain cap money. But the more likely scenario would be to cut Patterson, Carpenter and Marshall, which would free up about $8M-$10M additional dollars.

    He's going to be real expensive, but I would love for him to play opposite Wake.

    Would love him here but sounds like a ploy to drive Denvers price up.

    No his agent didn't get the contract signed and faxed in time so he became a free agent.

    I think he would be an upgrade over Dwight Freeney as he is younger...also younger than John Abraham. Bring him home....as long as he is not wanting over $8 million a year...maybe if he gives Miami a hometown discount.

    This would be great, but we are way too content on waiting for Jake Long to make up his damn mind. You know Long is going to eat up the rest of our cap space if we sign him. The option is either Long, Winston, Dumervil, or signing 2 more cheap FA's to fill up some holes. I don't think we are aggressive enough to just neglect our O-line problems heading into the draft.

    Just a quick thought. I think adding Dumervil would be huge for the pass rusher. He's not great against the run, but we could still have Odrick play some DE on 1st and some 2nd downs. Or Vernon as well. Anyways, one of the key ways to beating good teams is having a consistent and strong pass rush. Wake and Dumervil would go a long ways towards that...then could you imagine if Jarvis Jones were to fall to 12? Ill stop salivating now...

    I have seen a few mock drafts with Jarvis Jones falling into the 15-20 range, mainly because of a neck problem I think. I still think its a no brainier that we will draft a CB in the first round, we have only shown interest in Grimes so far, and have other guys on the radar as well... essentially no good corners at the moment. I would love to take Jones or Austin in the first though, but CB is the glaring hole on the team right now.... it can be helped if we pressure the QB.

    Well, he agreed to take a pay cut with the Broncos to $8million/year... Michael Bennet got a 1 year/$5million deal, so I would expect Dumervil to command about $6-7mil/year. I wouldn't mind doing a 2 year/$14million deal like the Seahawks did with Cliff Avril (2 year/$15million)... then next year Starks could be let go, Odrick pushed inside (or pushed inside now), and the salary cap doesn't have both Starks and Dumervil on it.

    Offer him Cam Wake money or leave it. You cant let these players dictate to you. Cam Wake is his equal.

    First thought it is he is looking at the team who's spending a lot , has cap room and let's his agent leak that he's interested. Maybe he's interested or maybe he's looking to use us to get Denver to pay big
