The Broncos have signed outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil to a contract extension. The deal is for six years and $61.5 million.
Aaron Wilson reports on Twitter that the deal involves $43 million in guaranteed money.
I suppose the Broncos have to retain somebody, but spending $43 million in guaranteed money on Dumervil seems excessive. It's certainly buying high on a guy who really struggles against the run and got a fair amount of his sacks against the opposition's weakest pass blocker.
