Elvis Dumervil became a free agent after the fax machine debacle that led to his release from the Denver Broncos, but the talented pass rusher has found a new team. Dumervil was reportedly deciding between returning to the Broncos or joining the Baltimore Ravens and his decision was made on Sunday afternoon. When it was all said and done, Dumervil ultimately chose the defending Super Bowl champions.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post was the first to report the news.

The Ravens announced it will be a five-year deal, but the financial terms were not disclosed.
Dumervil will immediately fill the void left by the departure of Paul Kruger who left the Ravens in favor of the Cleveland Browns in free agency. With Dumervil, Terrell Suggs and Courtney Upshaw, Baltimore has a very impressive trio of pass rushers.
Baltimore lost a number of key starters from the defense this offseason including future Hall of Famers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, so any talent they can add will be well received.
