Elvis Dumervil remains a Bronco, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

The team and their pass-rushing defensive end agreed on a restructured contract that reduces his 2013 salary from $12 million, according to two NFL sources.

Dumervil, 29, has 63 1/2 sacks in his seven playing seasons with the Broncos, including 20 1/2 combined in the past two seasons.

After drawing $14 million in both the 2011 and 2012 seasons, the Broncos sought a reduction in Dumervil's salary in 2013 in exchange for adding guaranteed money in later years of his contract. Dumervil had been scheduled to make $10 million in 2014 and $8 million in 2015.

The Broncos had been trying to work it out with Dumervil. John Elway, the team's front-office boss, made multiple calls directly to Dumervil in recent days. Dumervil also heard from coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
