BALTIMORE - The Baltimore Ravens say that Elvis Dumervil passed his physical. He is now officially a Baltimore Raven, they tweeted.
During a web chat hosted by the Ravens after his signing, Dumervil said it feels good to be welcomed by Ravens fans.
"It's exciting and it's just a testament to how great the fans are and how supportive they can be," he said. "...Especially as a defensive player, I'm excited to keep that crowd noise up when we're out there on the field."
Word of Dumervil’s potential signing with the Ravens broke over the weekend.
Dumervil had 63 1/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver. He agreed to reduce his 2013 salary from $12 million to $8 million but the paperwork didn't reach the NFL offices in time and the Broncos were forced to release him on March 15.
