    Ravens to sign Elvis Dumervil

    Elvis Dumervil has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Baltimore Ravens, a league source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    The star defensive end's agreement with Baltimore was earlier reported by the Denver Post.
    Dumervil became a free agent earlier this month after he was released by the Denver Broncos when paperwork for his reworked contract didn't make in time to the team. He had agreed to reduce his salary from $12 million to $8 million for next season.
    The Broncos had made another offer to re-sign Dumervil after his release.
    Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010. He had 11 sacks last season, second on the team behind Von Miller. Dumervil led the league with 17 sacks in 2009.
    He becomes a welcome addition to the Ravens, who have seen several key contributors to their Super Bowl victory leave this offseason.
    Baltimore has released defensive back Bernard Pollard and guard Bobbie Williams, traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the 49ers, lost linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger in free agency and watched linebacker Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk retire. Safety Ed Reed has signed a three year contract with the Texans.

    Glad he didn't end up back in Denver.
    Looks like the Bronckaroos are going the AARP route by replacing Elvis with Dwight Freeney or John Abraham.

    I am glad to see him leaving the AFC West. I won't miss seeing him harass Rivers twice a year.

    It's not like Dumberville was that good, it's just that our O-line was that lousy...

    He was enough of a threat from that side to make things even easier for Miller. I'm happy to see him out of the division.

    Ol Horsemouth said Dumervil was getting paid too much on the account of Von Miller's production. As if having Dumervil didn't make it easier for Von Miller to get to the quarterback. I wouldn't be surprised if Miller's numbers aren't as good next season.
