NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith will review the muddled exchange of contract documents that led to the Broncos releasing defensive end Elvis Dumervil, the Denver Post reported.

In a bizarre twist, the Broncos released Dumervil on Friday because paperwork of his restructured contract that included a 2013 salary cut from $12 million to $8 million was not filed by the 4 p.m. ET deadline.

The Broncos asked the league office it would honor the verbal agreement on the revised contract the team negotiated with Dumervil but the request was denied, according to the newspaper. The paper reported that Smith will look into the matter because Dumervil may have been hurt most by the botched contract exchange.

Had the Broncos not released Dumervil before Friday's deadline, his $12 million salary for 2013 would have become guaranteed.

According to a source, both Dumervil's reps and the Broncos reached agreement at 3:25 p.m. ET on the restructured contract. But the team did not get a fax from Dumervil's agent until 4:06 p.m. ET, so it had to release him, according to the source.

Broncos team president John Elway issued a statement Friday night, explaining the situation from the team's point of view.

"Due to the procedural elements that were involved in executing the new proposal, we imposed a 1 p.m. MDT deadline for a decision, one hour before the NFL's waiver wire at 2 p.m. MDT. Our deadline was clearly communicated to Elvis' representative," Elway said in the statement. "At 1 p.m. MDT, we were informed by Elvis' representative that he declined our offer. We then prepared Elvis' termination notice to officially file his release with the NFL office.

"At approximately 1:25 p.m. MDT, however, we were informed that Elvis changed his mind and accepted the same contract we proposed nearly two-and-a-half hours earlier. Although we expressed our concern regarding the time constraints, we were assured that the signed documents would be submitted to us before the league's waiver deadline.

"We did not receive the documents from Elvis by the league's deadline and were forced to release him shortly before 2 p.m. MDT.

"Due to this situation, there are now salary-cap implications associated with this transaction that we must consider with regard to potentially re-signing Elvis. At this moment, we are discussing all of our free-agency options to determine what's best for the Denver Broncos."

Marty Magid, Dumervil's agent, said he received the renegotiated document from the Broncos at 3:45 p.m. ET. He said he had Dumervil wait by a fax machine to receive the copy and then send it back.

Magid said he thought he got it back in proper time.

Dumervil signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010 when Josh McDaniels was coaching the team and before Elway joined the Denver front office.

Dumervil had 11 sacks last season, second on the team behind Von Miller. Dumervil led the league with 17 sacks in 2009.

Though the parties had agreed on a deal, the odds of Dumervil returning to Denver are hampered because cutting him could leave them with a salary cap hit of up to nearly $5 million.
