Ravens release DE Derek Wolfe after injury settlement

Ravens release DE Derek Wolfe after injury settlement

The Baltimore Ravens released Derek Wolfe on Tuesday after agreeing to an injury settlement with the veteran defensive end.

On Monday, Wolfe had surgery on his hip for a second time this year and said in a video posted to social media that he wanted to “get a full recovery here and try to live a normal life.”

Wolfe, 32, signed with the Ravens in 2020 on a one-year deal and played in 14 games that season, starting eight. He then signed a three-year extension before spending all of the 2021 season on the injured reserved. Wolfe initially injured the hip in the summer of 2021 during a combined practice with the Carolina Panthers.

He was under contract with the Ravens through the 2023 season and was scheduled to count $3.8 million against the Ravens’ salary cap.

“He played his butt off and he’s a Raven at heart,” fellow Baltimore defensive end Calais Campbell said of Wolfe on Tuesday. “It sucks to see him go through tough times with different injuries and stuff, but it happens. It’s part of the game.”

Before joining the Ravens, Wolfe spent eight seasons with the Denver Broncos, starting in each of the 108 games he played in. He started on the left side of the defensive line in the Broncos’ Super Bowl win over the Carolina Panthers in 2016.

In 122 NFL games, the University of Cincinnati product — selected 36th overall in the 2012 draft — notched 34 sacks, 81 QB hits and three fumble recoveries.
