Early years

Dumervil was born in Miami, Florida His parents were Haitian immigrants to Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood Separated when Dumervil was three years old, they raised a total of 10 children He attended Miami Jackson High School, where he was a two-sport star in football and track He played high school football for the Jackson Generals team Rated among the top 25 defensive ends by most football recruiting publications, Dumervil had a Jackson High School record 78 career sacks

College career

Despite standing at 5 ft 11 in, Dumervil was one of the most dominating defensive players in school history and put together one of the most impressive collegiate seasons in 2005 A native of Miami, Fla, Dumervil attended the University of Louisville, where he played for coach John L Smith 2002 and Bobby Petrino's Louisville Cardinals football team from 2003 to 2005 As a freshman in 2002, Dumervil recorded six tackles and two tackles for loss, but he impressed the coaching staff with his quickness and his high energy After John L Smith left, Petrino took over, and Dumervil's career took off In 2003, he tallied just 28 tackles and two sacks The Cardinal coaching staff had planned on redshirting him during the 2002 season, but injuries to other players and a lackluster performance by the defensive line forced him into the rotation

He showed glimpses of what was to come in 2004, when he tallied 52 tackles, 115 tackles for loss and a team-high 10 sacks in guiding the Cardinals to an 11-1 record and a win over Boise State in one of the most anticipated Liberty Bowls in the history of the prestigious post-season games His 2005 season was one of the best for a defensive end in both NCAA and school history, when he broke the NCAA single-game sack record 6 in a 31-24 win against the rival Kentucky Wildcats, and broke the NCAA record for forced fumbles His sack total also broke the Big East record set by Dwight Freeney, who was a player that Elvis desired to emulate He finished that season with a school record 205 sacks and 10 forced fumbles, which is still the best in NCAA history He won several awards for the 2005 season, including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Ted Hendricks Award, and Big East player of the year, and was recognized as a unanimous first-team All-American

In the 2006 Gator Bowl, Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick intentionally stomped on the back of Dumervil's leg after a whistle While no penalty was called, the backlash from this play in combination with a misdemeanor charge for driving with a suspended license led to Vick's permanent dismissal from the Virginia Tech football team Vick claimed that he had apologized to Dumervil after the game, while Dumervil disputed that claim and stated that he didn't receive any kind of apology from Vick

In college, he was known for the "strip-sack" maneuver where he would sometimes strip the ball from ball carriers or quarterbacks

The product of Miami Jackson High finished his career with 151 career tackles, 425 tackles for loss and 32 sacks He ranks third all-time in tackles for loss and second in sacks, and had his No 58 jersey honored during festivities at a November 7, 2015, home game against Syracuse

Professional career


Despite his collegiate success and comparisons to Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney, Dumervil was selected on the second day of the NFL Draft due to concerns about his small size 5'11", 258 pounds, and the fact that he went without a sack in his final three collegiate games This may have been due to being consistently double-teamed, but it was perceived by some as a sign of fatigue Several teams considered moving him to linebacker or only using him in pass rushing situations

Denver Broncos

Dumervil was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos Broncos coach Mike Shanahan stated that he planned to keep Dumervil at defensive end

Dumervil with the Broncos in 2011

Early in his rookie season, Dumervil saw little playing time However, his minutes increased as the season progressed and he finished the year with 85 sacks in 13 games In the first game of the 2007 NFL season, he would get the first interception of his career Dumervil would go on to lead the Broncos, and finish among league leaders, with 125 sacks in 2007

His half-brother, Curry Burns, also played at the University of Louisville and was drafted by the Houston Texans in the 2003 NFL Draft

With the Josh McDaniels coaching regime entering the 2009 season, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan moved Dumervil around as an outside linebacker in his 3-4 defensive scheme, but keeping him as a defensive end on 4-2-5 passing down situations Dumervil led the league in sacks with 17, and tied a franchise record with 4 in the Sep 20th game against Cleveland At the conclusion of the season, Dumervil was a near unanimous selection for the All-Pro Team, receiving 46 out of the 50 total votes He also finished third in voting for Defensive Player of the Year

In July 2010, Dumervil signed a six-year $615 million contract extension including $43168 million in guaranteed payments to keep him with the Broncos through 2015 However, on August 4, 2010, Dumervil suffered a torn pectoral muscle during practice, and missed the entire 2010 season

Dumervil in 2014

Dumervil's contract specified that if he were on the roster at 2:00 PM MT 4:00 PM ET on March 15, 2013, his $12 million salary for the 2013 season would be fully guaranteed The Broncos, looking to free up room under the salary cap, reached an agreement to restructure his contract to reduce his 2013 salary cap hit However, Dumervil and his agent faxed the paperwork six minutes late at 2:06 PM MT, which caused the Broncos to release Dumervil rather than allow the $12 million to be guaranteed As a result, while the Broncos could have re-signed Dumervil as soon as Saturday, March 16, they accrued $4869 million in "dead money" against their 2013 cap, in addition to any salary cap hits from the new contract The snafu led Dumervil to fire his agent

Baltimore Ravens

2013 season

On March 24, 2013, Dumervil agreed to a 5-year-deal with the Baltimore Ravens worth $35 million, including $85 million in the first year of the deal Dumervil was given No 58 – his college number at Louisville and the number of Peter Boulware, one of the greatest pass rushers in Ravens' history – with Baltimore because Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata had worn No 92 – the number Dumervil wore in Denver – for his entire career with the Ravens

2014 season

Dumervil finished his 2014 season tying his career high of sacks with 17, as well as forcing two fumbles The 17 sacks set a new Baltimore Ravens franchise record Dumervil and Terrell Suggs combined for the most sacks by a pair in the regular season, as Suggs had 12 of his own and the two totaled 29 He was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl and also named to the Associated Press's All-Pro first team

2015 season

Dumervil was the highest ranked Raven on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2015 list, coming in at number 46 He was the third highest ranked outside linebacker, behind fellow All-Pros Justin Houston and Von Miller

Dumervil's production would slow down drastically in 2015, despite starting all 16 games for the Ravens for the first time

In Week 3, Dumervil sacked Andy Dalton and forced a fumble, which was recovered by linebacker CJ Mosley and returned 41 yards for a touchdown However, the Bengals still won 28-24

In Week 10, Dumervil sacked Blake Bortles twice and defended a pass, but he also ruined Baltimore's chances of winning On what appeared to be the game's final play, the Jaguars got a snap off before the clock could hit zero, Dumervil ran past the Jacksonville offensive line untouched and got to Bortles However, he was called for a facemask penalty, giving the Jaguars one last chance to win the game, and they did after kicking a 53-yard field goal with no time left However, it was determined that Baltimore should have won the game regardless, as the Jaguars were not set on the line during the play in which Dumervil was flagged

Dumervil's final decent performance of the year came against the Browns on Monday Night Football, where he had 15 sacks in a 33-27 win Dumervil ended the year with 6 sacks, a defended pass and a forced fumble

Dumervil was selected to play in the 2016 Pro Bowl as an alternate, and arrived in Hawaii after an airline mix up that sent his bags to Japan He recorded one tackle in the game
