Baltimore Ravens to pursue Elvis Dumervil

Could the team that ended the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl dream benefit from the fiasco that has swept the NFL?

The Baltimore Sun is reporting the defending champions Baltimore Ravens -- who beat the Broncos in double overtime in the AFC divisional playoff round -- will be strong pursuers of pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil. The Ravens would make Dumervil an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme, the same defensive design Dumervil thrived in when the Broncos used it in 2009-10.

In what has become the biggest NFL story of the weekend, Dumervil is a free agent after a late-arriving fax scuttled a restructured deal with Denver.

The paper also reports New England, who may want to pay Denver back for signing Wes Welker, and Tennessee also are interested in Dumervil. While Dumervil reportedly wants to return to the Broncos, there have been conflicting reports of whether Denver wants Dumervil back.
