In news that surprises absolutely no one, Elvis Dumervil, a member of the Broncos as recently as 27 hours ago, has parted ways with agent Marty Magid. This comes a day after Magid was late submitting Dumervil's contract paperwork that resulted in his client's release.

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson first reported the news, adding, "I'm told there's no animosity between Elvis Dumervil and his agent. Just a bad situation that unfolded, obviously, and now Elvis moves on."

So there's that.

Magid, meanwhile, confirmed the break-up to USA Today's Mike Garafolo, and Wilson noted that Magid "will waive the five-day waiting period required by NFL Players Association for a player wanting to change agents," which means that Dumervil is free to hire new representation and find a job.

One possible suitor: the Ravens, who spent the last few weeks overhauling the depth chart. The team added depth along the defensive line in free agency (Marcus Spears, Chris Canty). After losing outside linebacker Paul Kruger to the Browns, Dumervil would fill an obvious pass-rushing need

A source told Wilson that the Ravens have serious interest in Dumervil. Whether the organization, which is tight against the salary cap, would be able to afford him is another issue; he was set to earn $8 million from the Broncos before the fax machine ate his contract.

Dumervil, who registered 11 sacks last season, could also draw interest from the Patriots and Titans.
