Headlines: Elvis Dumervil accidentally released, Roy Miller & Justin Forsett sign in Jacksonville, and Arrelious Benn is traded to the Eagles.

USA TODAY Sports

Big moves again today and it starts with the fax machine clusterf*ck in Denver. According to The Denver Post's Mike Kleis, Elvis Dumervil had agreed to a contract restructuring with the Broncos that would have kept him in Denver, and he told the team at 1:25pm local time. At 1:59 local time, because the Broncos had not yet received the contract paperwork via fax from Dumervil's agent, they were forced to release him. Had the 2:00pm deadline come and gone, the Broncos would have been on the hook for over $12M. As it stands now, the fax came through at 2:06 pm and Dumervil is a free agent, but the Broncos are still faced with dead money cap charges of nearly $5M - this makes it tough for them to re-sign the sack artist. Wow. Weirdest thing ever.

In other news:
