Martindale has vouched for Dumervil's skills, work ethic and character to team officials, who would like to continue an effort to overhaul the front seven. The Ravens have previousy added defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears via three-year, $8 million and two-year, $3.55 million contracts, respectively.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome immediately reached out to Dumervil's former agent, Marty Magid, to try to schedule a visit after the Broncos released the Pro Bowl defender rather than pay him a $12 million fully guaranteed salary for this year when a late fax scuttled a potential contract adjustment.
Dumervil hired new new representation, Tom Condon and Ben Dogra of megafirm CAA after firing Magid, who represents Ravens running back Bernard Pierce.
The Ravens aren't in contract discussions with free agent offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie, according to a league source. McKinnie is talking with a few other NFL teams, but nothing concrete has developed for the former Pro Bowl blocker yet.
