Dumervil’s pass-rush, patience, attitude pay off with new contract

ENGLEWOOD — Elvis Dumervil’s route to riches was somewhat unconventional by today’s NFL standards for superstars. He didn’t posture, wasn’t petulant or pouty. He didn’t rip his coaches or the front office, hold out of minicamps or ask for a trade.

Coming off an NFL-leading and team-record 17 sacks last season, Dumervil signed his restricted free agent tender and continued working out with the Denver Broncos during the offseason while his agent and general manager exchanged figures.

Dumervil hit pay dirt with a $61.5 million extension through 2015 that includes $43.168 million in guarantees, a record for a player at his pass-rushing position.
