The Ravens hope Dumervil gives AFC North quarterbacks fits all season long.
Many Ravens fans may have lost all hope when the likes of Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe left for greener pastures.
Enter Elvis Dumervil, who has not left the building much since his signing.
Elvis Dumervil became a free agent after a bizarre chain of events involving a mishap with a fax machine.
What was one team's misfortune became another team's opportunity. The Ravens swooped in and signed the pass rusher to five year, $35 million contract.
When the Ravens signed the former Denver Bronco, they not only replaced the departed Paul Kruger, they arguably upgraded the position. Dumervil will team with Terrell Suggs to create one of the best pass rushing duos in the league.
Dumervil has been a constant presence in the Ravens facility and could become one of the leaders of the Ravens defense as well. With the departure of so many veterans, his performance on and off the field are equally important.
This is arguably the best signing of the Ravens this offseason. With an improved defensive line, Suggs and Dumervil can make quarterbacks more than a little nervous every Sunday.
