Broncos OLB Elvis Dumervil has yet to sign his restricted free-agent tender and is waiting for a long-term contract offer. While it doesn't appear that an agreement is imminent, sources in Denver say it would be surprising if the team didn't lock him up for several seasons before the start of the 2010 campaign. A new deal is not guaranteed, though. Dumervil has taken part in OTAs, even though he didn't have to attend because they're optional and he's technically still a free agent. The NFL's defending sack leader signed an injury waiver before taking the field and said he did it because some of the terminology has changed under new defensive coordinator Don Martindale. Dumervil didn't want to risk falling behind. Other teams' restricted free agents have been rewarded with long-term deals this offseason, and sources say the Broncos risk sending a bad message to their players by not rewarding Dumervil.
