Broncos want to re-do Dumervil's deal, won't pay him $12M for 2013

The Denver Broncos have informed pass rusher Elvis Dumervil they want to restructure his deal and do not intend to pay him $12 million this season, according to a league source.

The situation figures to come to a head this week and could lead to his release. The Broncos are already paying Peyton Manning $20M a season, Champ Bailey is set to make more than $10M and Von Miller soon will be among the highest paid defenders in NFL history as he plays on his rookie deal.

Denver wants to keep Dumervil but at a more manageable figure. If they can't come to terms, he would join guys like Paul Kruger, Connor Barwin and Dwight Freeney as pass rushers on the open market.

Free agency will officially begin Tuesday afternoon, and teams continue to juggle their cap and budgets ahead of the spending period.
