Elvis has left the building. But he might return.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said Tuesday that Elvis Dumervil is "definitely in the mix" for a possible return to the team. The news comes less than a week after the defensive end and his agent failed to submit a signed, renegotiated contract by a 2 p.m. deadline.

Since then, the Pro Bowler  has parted ways with his agent and has drawn interest from a number of teams including the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.

But according to a report Tuesday from Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, Fox is talking to the three-time Pro Bowler about bringing him back to the team:

"He's definitely in the mix. He's a player I know I've enjoyed coaching, he's done good things for our staff, defensively, our football team. He's definitely a guy who is in the mix for us, will be in the mix, should be in the mix. And we'll see where that takes us."
