The organization can't do anything. Doom holds all the cards in this situation.
The team won't cut him outright.
Funny how we spent a season as a 3-4 where Doom excelled no doubt, and now all of a sudden on a team with a historical deficieny in finding pass rushers he's expendable because he only gets 10 sacks a year.
The problem I have is that the team doesn't need to renegotiate his deal at all. It goes down in value after next year and every year thereafter. This is nothing more than a penny pinching move on a player and in a position that is a premium in the NFL.
But hey, trade him for an player (and a blue chip prospect) coming off a serious injury and just call it a day. Never mind that that player will want a contract, salary, and cap hit that would FAR exceed what Dumervil is now. Yeah, don't pay attention to any of that.
