NFLPA signs electronic-signature deal in hopes of avoiding another Dumervilian disaster

Dear incoming NFL rookie: Worried your $8 million contract might get held up by a balky fax machine?

Worry no more.

The NFL Players Association announced a deal Tuesday with an electronic-signature company that will give players access to technology that makes signing a contract as easy as hitting a few buttons on a cellphone.

The well-timed deal between the NFLPA and DocuSign comes two days before the draft and with memories of the Denver Broncos-Elvis Dumervil fax fiasco still fresh on everyone's mind.

Last month, the Broncos and their defensive end were unable to seal the deal on a restructured contract because Dumervil couldn't get the signed paperwork back to the team in time via fax.
