The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Wolfe fills the void left by the unexpected departure last week of free agent Michael Brockers, who initially agreed to a three-year deal with Baltimore.
The sides couldn’t finalize the contract, however, and Brockers ended up going back to the Los Angeles Rams.READ MORE: Suspected Drunk Driver Crashes Into Brooklyn Park Home, Killing 68-Year-Old Man
Wolfe joins Brandon Williams and newcomer Calais Campbell on Baltimore’s revamped defensive line.
When healthy, Wolfe has been an effective run-stopper. He has 299 career tackles and 33 sacks but has played all 16 games in only three of his eight seasons.
