NFL free agency is heating up, and teams around the league are releasing players in order to make their next move.

The Ravens have a lot of areas of need, and on Wednesday, former Ravens WR and newest NFL reporter Steve Smith Sr. broke the news that the team will release defensive end Elvis Dumervil.

The 33-year-old joined the Ravens in 2013 after seven standout seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Dumervil was one of the elite sack masters in the NFL, leading the league in sacks in 2009. He was a two-time First-Team All-Pro and a five-time Pro Bowler.

The former Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner posted 17 sacks in 2014, but followed up with just six in 2015, and injuries forced him to missed eight games in 2016, in which he finished with just nine total tackles and two sacks. 

Dumervil exits the Ravens just one sack shy of the 100-sack plateau. He current sits No. 32 all-time in career sacks.
