OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Elvis Dumervil says he left the Denver Broncos for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens because he was looking to play for a winner in a different city.
Dumervil passed his physical and signed a five-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday. The 6-foot, 260-pounder was introduced at a news conference in which he said, ``Going to a winning organization was important.''
He had said nothing bad about his former team. It's just that he was ready to leave after a fax snafu led to his release from the Broncos.
Dumervil says, ``I just felt it was a time to change scenery.''
The Ravens welcomed him after an offseason in which they lost free agents Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe and Cary Williams.
