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.

And all this time I really thought he was going to take the kick and the nuts and play at a reduced rate this season. Aw, man.

not like there was ever a question of if hes going to sign it.

its worth mentioning, logan mankins of the patriots said today hes not signing his tender, and basically isnt going to play til he gets a new deal. elvis is a true professional about this stuff.

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.

The drama queens have hopefully gone onto some other dramatic quest. Maybe they have Royal and Graham traded for Bret Favre or some such nonsense.

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.

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-

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 fact that Elvis signed his tender indicates that he and his agent believe a new contract is imenent. I expect it to be in place by early in training camp, probably before.

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 plays for love of the game, not for the money. Dumervil will get his contract because he is not acting like a ****head.
