Elvis Dumervil found himself out of a job and the Broncos were without their best defensive end Friday afternoon after they reached an agreement on a new contract but saw it all come undone when tardy faxing of the paperwork forced Denver to release him. Dumervil is now a free agent, and the Broncos now can start looking at other DEs, including Dwight Freeney, in what is shaping up as a buyer's market for pass rushers.   Kolb discarded The Arizona Cardinals have released ex-Eagle Kevin Kolb, ending the quarterback's two injury-filled seasons with the team.

The Indianapolis Colts' injury problems still could be lingering by training camp this summer. President Bill Polian said yesterday he does not expect perennial Pro Bowl receiver Marvin Harrison, Defensive Player of the Year Bob Sanders or former sacks champion Dwight Freeney to be ready to start training camp. All have had surgery, and Polian insists the team shouldn't bring them back before they're healthy. The three biggest names aren't the only ones who could land on the physically unable to perform list this summer.

Antoine Winfield struggled to come up with the words to describe what it's been like in the nine days since his younger brother was murdered. The Minnesota Vikings cornerback played in the season opener last weekend, four days after learning of the death of 30-year-old Anthony Travis. And when the Vikings take the field against the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday, he will be playing just three days after attending his brother's funeral. Winfield returned to practice Friday, one day after flying to his hometown of Akron, Ohio, for the services for Travis, who had two daughters.

NFL COMMISSIONER Roger Goodell said Monday that he thought the Pro Bowl improved from last year, when players were clearly not trying and were booed by fans in Hawaii. "I watched the game and noticed the improved quality of the game," Goodell, who last year threatened to discontinue the all-star game, said in a question-and-answer session on the social network Reddit. The NFC won the game, 62-35, on Sunday. Goodell said he appreciates the commitment from players to make the game better.

Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair made his first Pro Bowl yesterday, joining three teammates a year after the Titans were shunned but ended up in the AFC title game. McNair, in his ninth NFL season, has thrown 22 touchdown passes and just six interceptions for the Titans (10-4). "This is a tremendous honor for myself and my teammates," said McNair, who is the highest-rated passer in the NFL but is nursing calf and ankle injuries. Kansas City and Baltimore each had eight players selected for the Feb. 8 all-star game in Honolulu.

Chris Johnson didn't get any votes for MVP. He didn't miss any for the Associated Press 2009 NFL All-Pro team. The Tennessee Titans' 2,000-yard rusher was the only unanimous choice for the squad, announced yesterday. He's joined in the backfield by Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who won an unprecedented fourth Most Valuable Player Award last week, when only quarterbacks received votes. "That'd be a good thing," said Johnson, who won the Offensive Player of the Year award Wednesday.

As Andy Reid read the names, it seemed as if the Eagles coach was reciting his starting team. Twelve players will not make the trip to Indianapolis for tomorrow's preseason game against the Colts. Of the 12, 11 are injured. Of those 11, four of them are projected starters on the offensive line. All four linemen could be ready to start when the season opens in less than four weeks, but there is no definite timetable for the return of guards Todd Herremans and Stacy Andrews and tackles Jason Peters and Shawn Andrews.

King Dunlap's baptism came by fire - and its name was Dwight Freeney. The Eagles' fill-in left tackle, starting his first NFL game of any kind, was pitted against the Indianapolis Colts' all-time sack leader in the Birds' 23-15 loss last night at Lucas Oil Field. It took Freeney, a four-time Pro Bowl defensive end, one play to exploit Dunlap, a third-stringer stepping in for the injured and projected starter, Jason Peters. After a sack forced a Colts fumble, the Eagles took over on the Indianapolis 24-yard line.

ELVIS DUMERVIL is putting his seven seasons in Denver and one bizarre fax fiasco behind him after agreeing to a 5-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. So, after a second stinging loss to the Ravens this offseason, the Broncos find themselves in need of a new pass-rushing partner for Von Miller . Broncos football operations chief John Elway issued a statement Sunday saying the Broncos "worked diligently over the last week" to re-sign Dumervil but "are now moving forward without him. " Free agents John Abraham , 34, and Dwight Freeney , 33, visited the Broncos last week and it's expected one of them will sign on soon to replace Dumervil, 29. Dumervil collected 63 1/2 sacks in seven seasons in Denver.

Dwight Freeney's ankle injury may or may not have been greatly exaggerated. All we know for sure after Super Bowl XLIV is that it did not greatly inhibit the Indianapolis Colts' defensive end from being a pass-rushing force in the first half, but it may have caught up with him in the final 30 minutes. After suffering a third-degree sprain and torn ligaments in his right ankle late in the Colts' AFC title victory over the New York Jets, Freeney did not practice the entire week leading up to last night's 31-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

When the Indianapolis Colts' defensive players lined up for media day at Sun Life Stadium, Dwight Freeney got more attention than any of his teammates. That's usually what happens when the Colts' defensive players line up to play a football game, too. Freeney's 92 career sacks - 84 in the regular season and eight more in the postseason - since the Colts astutely made him a first-round pick in 2002 are more than any other player in the league during that time period. That's the kind of thing that keeps an offensive coordinator up at night.
