(NECN/CSN: Kevin Walsh) – Who still has a fax machine? Well, apparently the agent for Elvis Dumervil. The Broncos pass rusher had to take a pay cut from $12 million to $8 million, but they had to have the paper work faxed to the team by 4 p.m. EST. They missed it by six minutes.

So the Broncos released Dumervil so they wouldn’t take a $12 million cap hit. So now he’s a free agent.

Dumervil goes out as a free agent but he may not get the $8 million he had in hand, so then the Broncos can leverage him back.

By the way, the agent, Marty Magid, has been fired.
