    Agreed. I don't think it's gonna happen for Tennessee. Usually, the Tennessean mentions interest that we have in a given free agent. Haven't heard boo from them. Hope I'm wrong, I'd like to have Elvis, but I think he's going to sign elsewhere. Not a good sign the the Ratturds are "negotiating" with him.

    Reach is, not height. Longer arms help battle the OT when trying to get around the outside. Typically wingspan is about equal to height if not a big longer. Which is why shorter DEs are usually not successful. Dumerville, however, has unusually long arms. While he is only 5'11" his wingspan is 6'6". He has the wingspan of someone 6'4" to 6'6". Dwight Freeney is another successful pass rusher who has unusually long arms for his 6'1" height.

    Dumervil is so used to playing in the 3-4 that I'm not sure he would be open to change.

    Denver has been running a 4-3 the last two years. They also ran a 4-3 the first few years Dumervil was in the league. Josh McDaniels ran a 3-4 for the two years he was HC-2009 and 2010. Dumervil however missed the entire 2010 season with an injury. As a pro he has only played in a 3-4 one year. And that year the team switched to a 4 man line on passing downs with Dumervil at DE.

    Good heads up, I quit following the Broncos any when McDaniels was there. I wasn't aware they switched to the 4-3 with J. Fox.

    1. Team wants to significantly upgrade at DE
    2. We play a style of defense that suits him
    3. The other teams interested in him are tight against the cap while we still have lots of room

    Oh, I thought there had been a recent development. I really hope you're right.
