Elvis Dumervil Willing To Restructure Broncos Contract, Agent Says
If Elvis Dumervil is mad, he's not showing it. He may not agree with the Broncos' desire to slash his $12 million salary for the 2013 season, but he isn't defiantly making any "pay me or release me" demands.
The Broncos communicated their cost-cutting intentions Thursday to Dumervil's agent, Marty Magid.
"They informed us they want to do a restructure," Magid said. "I'm not classifying this as a pay cut. I'm going ahead with this being a restructure. If we can meet on some common ground, there's a potential we can get it done. If we can't, they'll have to make a decision. But we're definitely in good faith going to try to negotiate this out.
"Elvis wants to return as a Bronco if it all possible, and that's what we're trying to do — make the client happy and try to appease the team."
This doesn't mean Dumervil, one of the NFL's top pass rushers since being drafted by the Broncos in 2006, will be back with the team for an eighth season. It just means he's open to negotiation.

well, a 'restructure' is different than a flat out 'pay cut', which is what was first reported. a 'restructure' can often times benefit the player financially by getting years added to a deal/bonuses/etc.
