per rotoworld:

Broncos re-signed restricted free agent OLB Elvis Dumervil to a one-year, $3.168 million contract.
According to the Denver Post's Lindsay Jones, the sides will continue to work on a long-term deal. Dumervil, 26, set or tied career highs in tackles (48), sacks (17), and forced fumbles (4) last season. Despite Denver's coordinator change from Mike Nolan to "Wink" Martindale, Dumervil's role should be unchanged as the team's right outside 'backer and premier pass rusher.

and per lindsay jones (DP):

PostBroncos

Dumervil's tender is for a $3.168 million salary in 2010. His agent and the Broncos continue to negotiate a new long-term contract.

Thank heavens. I've been getting sick of hearing him b*tching to the media every day about having to feed his family and how McD is ruining the franchise.

Of course Elvis signed his tender, happily.

He knows it's only a matter of a few weeks and some small details before he gets the long term deal he wants with Denver.

Patriots' Mankins: 'I want to be traded'

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins said Monday that he does not plan to sign his restricted free agent tender and wants to be traded.

"At this point, I'm pretty frustrated, from everything that's happened and the way negotiations have gone," Mankins said in a phone interview. "I want to be traded. I don't need to be here any more."

Mankins has until 11:59 p.m. ET to sign his $3.26 million tender. Asked his plans in regard to signing the tender, Mankins said: "There is no way that I'm signing that thing."

Thus, as the Patriots start their mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Mankins is not planning to attend. With Mankins not planning on signing the tender, the Patriots can now fire back by slicing his salary to $1.54 million. The Patriots sent Mankins a letter indicating their right to make that cut, and now could take this action based on Mankins' hard line.

Mankins, who enters his sixth NFL season, would have been an unrestricted free agent in a season with a salary cap. But with the league's rules changing to a non-salary cap system this offseason, Mankins reverted to restricted free agent status.

Mankins said his frustration is beyond the change of a salary-cap system. He feels as if the Patriots aren't being true to their word.

"After the 2008 season, me and my agent approached the Patriots about an extension and I was told that Mr. Kraft did not want to do an extension because of the [uncertain collective bargaining agreement]," Mankins said. "I was asked to play '09 out, and that they would address the contract after the uncapped year. I'm a team player, I took them at their word, and I felt I played out an undervalued contract.

"That's the big thing," he continued. "Right now, this is about principle with me and keeping your word and how you treat people. This is what I thought the foundation of the Patriots was built on. Apparently, I was wrong. Growing up, I was taught a man's word is his bond. Obviously this isn't the case with the Patriots."

Mankins would not provide details of negotiations, or what he is seeking financially in a contract. His agent, Frank Bauer, also declined to discuss details, although revealed that the main reason a deal hasn't been reached is that the Patriots' final offer is "20 percent lower than Jahri Evans' deal with the Saints."

Evans, a Pro Bowl guard, signed a seven-year, $56.7 million contract with the Saints in May.

Yes... he did. He could hold out like the two Chargers are talking about doing.

My understanding is that indeed, he could, however then he would be entitled to a 10% increase (which equals somewhere in the $1.3 Million range (?)-so, yes, the Charger Players could certainly do that, but would you take a $2 M hit? I think that in a uncapped Year elvis played the smart move-

3 mil to play a freaking game is plenty of money.

06-14-2010, 01:54 PM
Oh yeah he is really sacrificing. Only getting 3 million for 1 yr is such a bummer.

really he should be happy because he was a project. Not a lot of NFL teams ever thought he would be worth even a million a yr. He slipped in the draft because no one wanted him. So really he has nothing to be bummed about. He should be stoked!!!

Sure at some point he can jockey for more money and I wont feel sorry for Bowlen either when he has to pay it.

If he doesn't sign the tender to earn $3.26m and the Pats reduce it to the $1.54m...he might as well sit out the season. Why?

He would be a fee-agent next year and would command a $50m + contract...more than making up for the year without compensation. Why risk injury.

The Pats would then have to plug a huge hole on their offensive line. Sure they would have played hard ball...but at a huge price to the team.

The only reason Dumervil signed his was because they are very close to announcing his new extension so this was a formality at this point. The rest of these guys aren't getting extensions and so are pissed.

Dumervil signed his tender because he is promised a large raise and wants to get paid just like every other player, and if he wasn't getting paid a lot of money to do what he does, he likely would do something else for a living, love of the game be damned. Dumervil will get his contract because he is not acting like a ****head.

You have got to be kidding me or you have passed bobtheidiot for villiage idiot naming rights.

If this was not about $$$ Doom would have signed the tender the day it was issued. I am still amazed at how damn stupid your post is.

In regards to the other players who have no signed, what are the repercussions for not signing the tender by tomorrow?

I know they cant hold out the entire season or they would lose a year of eligibility for FA, but I am not sure if they can just hold out for like the first 10 weeks and come back for the final six and have that count as a season

I read about some sort of August 1st deadline for RFAs, but I dont remember what that said

He deserves to get paid along the lines of th best pass-rushers in the league.
We're fortunate to have him. He's been performing steadily since he came into the league.
He's a proven pass-rusher. Now, it'll be nice to have another one to emerge this season as a complimentary player that could create chaos at the line of attack...
A solid nose tackle would do wonders...

So, how are they failing to keep their word again? 2010 is the uncapped year, not 2009. Maybe he should have read about what was going on in the NFL before opening his trap.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post (http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_15297749) reports only a committed future separates the Broncos from Elvis Dumervil. As reported Monday, Dumervil, Denver's all-pro pass-rushing linebacker, signed his first- and third-round restricted free-agent tender Monday, ensuring that he will play for no less than $3.168 million this season.
Had he not signed his tender in protest of not getting a multiyear contract from the Broncos, Dumervil's salary could have been reduced to about $630,000.
After leading the NFL with 17 sacks last year, and recording 43 sacks in four years while making a combined $2.015 million, Dumervil is hoping to be among the league's five highest-paid pass rushers. That would mean a multiyear contractworth at least $65 million, with the guaranteed portion about $40 million.
At this point Dumervil's asking price is a bit steep for the Broncos, although general manager Brian Xanders continues to negotiate with Gary Wichard, the linebacker's agent.
If the Broncos can't reach an agreement with Dumervil by their season opener Sept. 12 at Jacksonville, there's a good chance he will play out this year, then move on to another team through unrestricted free agency.

It's a proven fact that players perform better in contract years. Keep him hungry. Make him play under the $3 mil figure this year and then see what happens at the end of the year. Either there will be no football at all or there will be football with a new CBA. It may not include the same exact form of franchise and transition tags they have now, but I have a hard time believing there will be no equivalent at all.

I didn't want to start up a new thread on this topic but wanted to pose the question to those who have more knowledge of the situation than me, has there been any further developments in Elvis's contract negotiations? Seems like its been pretty quite on that front for a little while now. I'd appreciate any information anyone has.
