Doesn't make sense for Elway to lie in this situation; he's been pretty straightforward the entire time about what would happen.

Well, that's the beauty of a salesman though, they zig when you think they would zag.

We'll probably never know the entire truth.

outside of the Mays contract Elway has been straight gangsta in negotiations.
no point in him lying. if he did the word would spread about how they treated a long time Bronco.

I'd call Doom and tell him to fire his agent now or I'm flying Freeney in now.

We obviously don't know all the details.. And I was excited to keep Doom at the reduced rate, but unless he sign for $3 and change to match the cap hit and agree to the same terms.. I would proceed without him..

Enjoy taking less money on the open market Elvis. I bet you just lost $5 MM - $8MM screwing around.

First your agent guarentees your contract a week into free agency instead of at the start of FA when you might have set the bar and now this

Evidently, smoke signals are the preferred method for communication between Dove Valley and Doom's agent.

My first reaction is Dumervil's agent was playing games and sure, he agreed to a pay cut, but not really.

Just got out of meeting and am reading all of this. Sounds like the agent played a fast one....Doom gets his guaranteed money and signs somewhere else with a new contract. Just what I'm seen from what I've read.

Elvis already got that $5 mill, its a cap hit for us this year but we already paid that money to him.

I say throw the money at Clady next offseason and go get snother warm body for DE...Maybe draft one... Nail the draft and let Elvis leave...It's just shady business all around and I agree that there is NO reason to believe this agent...

He gets NOTHING from us. Why does this inaccuracy still persist?

There will be plenty of good options in the draft..

Jones, Oakfor, Moore, Hunt, Tank C, Jenkins... So many prospects to choose from..

There is no way it is a good idea to draft a pass rusher in round 1 this year - we need someone who can contribute right now and the chances of a pass rusher drafted at the bottom round 1 in a weak draft contributing is very small in deed.

We need to get a veteran in like Abraham, if we can't resign Dumervil, hope he hasn't lost everything.
