The Ravens, just a day after Michael Brockers’ signing fell through, have reportedly found their replacement.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Ravens have signed defensive lineman Derek Wolfe to a one-year deal worth $6 million.
The 30-year-old defensive lineman had a career-high seven sacks last season in just 12 games. But the biggest knock on Wolfe is his health, as he’s played just 16 games three times in his career and just once in the last five seasons.
Wolfe figures to slot in alongside Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams on the Ravens’ starting defensive front. He’ll be backed up by Jihad Ward and Justin Ellis, too.
Over his career, Wolfe has totaled 299 career tackles with a career-high 51 in 2016. Last season, 12 quarterback hits to go along with his seven sacks.
A second-round pick by the Broncos in 2012, Wolfe was productive for the Broncos and helped them win a Super Bowl in 2016 over the Panthers.
If Wolfe can stay healthy, the Ravens seem to have filled out their defensive line rather nicely after the blow of losing Brockers.
