DENVER (AP) — Elvis Dumervil has spurred the Denver Broncos for Baltimore, agreeing to a five-year deal, Ravens general manger Ozzie Newsome announced Sunday.

Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is expected to be in Baltimore Tuesday to take his physical and sign the paperwork.

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."

Dumervil had 63½ 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. The sides continued negotiating but the Ravens swooped in.
