Elvis Dumervil Will Wear Von Miller's No. 58 in Baltimore

On Sunday, free agent defensive end Elvis Dumervil signed a five-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, ending his tenure with the Denver Broncos.  In Baltimore's 3-4 defense, Dumervil will be moving to outside linebacker.

In Denver, third-year star outside linebacker Von Miller wears jersey No. 58 in honor of the late Derrick Thomas, who recorded 126.5 career sacks during his eleven-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs.  The Ravens will now have their own No. 58—Dumervil.

The Ravens official site notes that Dumervil wore No. 58 in college and No. 92 (the number Elvis wore in Denver), is worn by Baltimore's Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.

Baltimore will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. ET to introduce Dumervil.
