And this time, there's no deadline on his decision.
That's the latest from Broncos team president John Elway (via ESPN.com), who said on Tuesday that the three-time Pro Bowler has been offered a contract to rejoin one of the NFL's best pass-rushing units.
It has certainly been a strange week for Dumervil. He was released on Friday following what appeared to be a renegotiation of his six-year, $61.5 million contract. Both sides had a deal in place that would have reduced Dumervil's 2013 salary from $12 million to $8 million.
All that was left was the paperwork.
The paperwork was late, however, and the Broncos were forced to release Dumervil rather than accrue the additional $4 million salary cap hit.
The aftermath has produced a fired agent (Marty Magid), a new agent (Tom Condon) and a long-shot appeal to the NFL begging for a word-of-mouth agreement to trump the guaranteed-money deadline (via ESPN.com).
The appeal was denied, and Dumervil remained a free agent. He might not be one for long, though. It appears Denver has taken the steps to bring its second-best pass-rusher back into the fold for the 2013 season.
Other teams have expressed interest in the veteran, but the Broncos have been the front-runners for his services despite this ongoing saga.
With an offer on the table yet again, it is now on Dumervil to either agree to Denver's offer, or look for a new place of business.
