NFLPA fines, suspends Elvis Dumervil's former agent

DENVER - The agent involved in the fax machine debacle that led the Denver Broncos to release Elvis Dumervil was fined and suspended by the Players' Association Tuesday.

The NFLPA's Committee on Agent Regulation and Discipline is punishing Marty Magid for "committing actions that adversely impact his ability to serve as a Certified Contract Advisor and for being in violation of provisions of the NFLPA Regulations Governing Contract Advisors."

Magid's certification as a contract advisor will be suspended for six months and the NFLPA will charge him a $25,000 fine.

The announcement from the union also leaves the door open for action to be taken against the Broncos.

"CARD's discipline of Magid does not foreclose action the NFLPA may take against the NFL club for its conduct, which may have violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement and Dumervil’s rights under the CBA," they wrote.

The Denver Broncos were forced to release Dumervil after faxed paperwork to reduce the defensive end's salary missed a deadline by 6 minutes. He went on to sign a deal with the Baltimore Ravens.
