While free-agent Elvis Dumervil is being courted by the several teams, the agent he fired after failing to submit contract paperwork to the league regarding an execution has hired an attorney, reports ESPN.com.
Marty Magid hired David Cornwell, who has represented players and agents in the past. The report says Magid hired Cornwell just in case he should face any future litigation or be subject to discipline by the NFL Players Association.
The Denver Broncos released Dumervil shortly before the 4 p.m. ET deadline last Friday when his contract reducing his salary to $8 million from $12 million arrived via fax seven minutes late. Magid was fired the next day.
Cornwell confirmed Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he is now representing the agent, Marty Magid, most likely as a preemptive move in the event Magid should face any future litigation or be subject to discipline by the NFL Players Association.
Dumervil hired Tom Condon as his new agent and Broncos team president John Elway said the team had extended a new contract offer to Dumervil.
