After initially agreeing to a deal with defensive end Michael Brockers before he ultimately signed back with the LA Rams, the Baltimore Ravens continued their search for another piece to add to their defensive line. They also missed out on Ndamukong Suh and a few others but they have reportedly found a solution in former Broncos lineman Derek Wolfe.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Wolfe has agreed to a one-year deal with the Ravens. Wolfe’s deal comes with a guaranteed salary of $3 million all the way up to $6 million in bonuses.

The Ravens have been on a quest all offseason to bolster their front seven with some extra girth on the line. Though Baltimore missed out on splashy free agents such as Jadeveon Clowney or Chris Jones, they added Calais Campbell and now also Derek Wolfe after their deal with Brockers fell apart.
Wolfe has been a consistently productive member of Denver’s solid defense over the past half decade-plus. The veteran was drafted by the Broncos back in 2012 and has played all eight of his professional seasons in Denver. Wolfe is coming off his best season after compiling seven sacks in just 12 games. With an improved defensive line, the Ravens should once again be one of the AFC’s title contenders next season.
