Default Elvis Dumervil to Baltimore?

So apparently the cap strapped Baltimore Ravens and the Pats who for some reason never seem to be cap hindered are very interested in Dumervil after the fax debacle in Denver.

Yet every year all we ever hear about is the Steelers never having cap room to sign a higher profile free agent. Oh but sorry I forgot never question "The Steeler way." Never sign a serious free agent, always overpay your own mediocre players and pretend that you draft well.

The Ravens being interested doesn't mean anything, and your criticism are true to a certain extent as the Steelers overpay certain players that aren't deserving of those contracts, and with all NFL Drafts there's always going to be busts and wrong moves by every team. Let's just hope this year we draft the right players and we let them play, instead of being back ups all the time.

He wants to stay with Denver. Supposedly he has already fired his agent over this debacle.

maybe you just dont really understand the salary cap.

anyone who knows the most elementary things about the cap understands why the patriots never seem to be "cap hindered".

its simple math really... basic budgeting and effective planning...

The Patriots rarely pay or keep a player to long. The Vets they do sign are short term or incentive based.

Default Elvis Dumervil

Steelers have interest, this would be a huge signing and would be a great addition to the pass rush. If we get both him and Bradshaw, I will be very very happy.

E.D. recently fired his agent, and he'd like to stay in Denver.

On what planet would the Steelers be interested in a free agent that wants 7 mil per?
