DE - BAL
Week 2 Outlook
DE Derek Wolfe and the Ravens have reached and agreement on a three-year, $12 million contract.
Wolfe started eight games at DE for the Ravens in 2020. He racked up 51 tackles (19 solo) and one sack across 14 contests last season. Wolfe will start along Calais Campbell and look to improve on his career-low sack total (one) in 2020.
Former Broncos DE Derek Wolfe is signing a one-year, $6M deal with the Baltimore Ravens.
Wolfe, an eight-year veteran out of Cincinnati, was drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2012 draft. The edge rusher started 12 games last season for the Broncos and recorded a career-high seven sacks. Wolfe has 299 tackles and 33 sacks in his career with Denver and now he’ll take his pass rushing ability to Baltimore, a nice consolation prize for the Ravens after they were unable to land DE Michael Brockers.
Derek Wolfe suffered an apparent left elbow dislocation in the fourth quarter of a 23-20 win over the Chargers and will get an MRI on Monday to confirm his injury. Up until that point, Wolfe had recorded two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, two TFLs, two sacks, and three QB hits.
Wolfe stepped up in the absence of Von Miller and had a major impact on this game, disrupting Chargers' quarterback Phillip Rivers all day. Wolfe set a new career-best with his seven sacks on the season, though it may be overshadowed by his possible season-ending injury. With pass-rusher Bradley Chubb already out for the year, Denver may have problems getting to Deshaun Watson next week.
Derek Wolfe recorded three solo tackles, two TFLs, and two QB hits in a shutout win over the Titans.
Wolfe may have benefitted from the absence of Bradley Chubb, who is out for the year with an ACL tear. However, the Titans OL allowed seven sacks and ten QB hits, so his production may have been a result of an easy opponent. Wolfe will look to add to his sack total on TNF versus the Chiefs.
Derek Wolfe was carted off field with ab ankle injury. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, but it's believed to be an ankle sprain and not as "serious" as first expected.
The loss of Wolfe would be a big blow to the Denver defense. Hopefully, he is ok. The Broncos should provide more information soon.
