Report: Steelers Have Interest In Former Broncos LB Elvis Dumervil
The Baltimore Sun is reporting on Sunday that the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens both have interest in recently released Denver Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil.
Dumervil, who had agreed to a last minute pay cut with the Broncos on Friday, was ultimately released because a fax from his agent was not received by decision time. Dumervil has since fired his agent.
The 29 year-old Dumervil has registered 37.5 sacks in his last three seasons and finished second on the Broncos last season behind only Von Miller.
The Steelers could use some depth at the outside linebacker position following the release of linebacker James Harrison a week ago Saturday. Salary cap constraints, however, might be a huge obstacle for the Steelers, if indeed they have serious interest in Dumervil, who was scheduled to earn a $12 million base salary in 2013 prior to his release.
The Steelers had Dallas Cowboys free agent outside linebacker Victor Butler in for a visit this past week, but he left town without a deal.
