Reports are surfacing that Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe might be the man in a video that shows him throwing a punch at a Denver nightclub.
It appears as if a Denver Bronco player might have gotten himself in trouble. And the video might be the smoking gun needed.
According to TMZ Sports, and later reported by Pro Football Talk, Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was seen at a nightclub in Denver throwing a punch at someone. The video in question shows a man that appears to be Wolfe throwing a punch.
At the time of this writing, it is unclear what started the fight. But the report also says that Derek Wolfe left the club bleeding after he was hit with a bottle. It is also reported that the police were not called or anyone was arrested.
This is not the first time that a Broncos player was involved in a bar fight. Back in the 2014 offseason, T.J. Ward was caught on video throwing a glass mug at a bartender. He would end up getting suspended by the NFL one year after the incident, which he served during the season opener last year against the Baltimore Ravens.
Derek Wolfe signed a four year, $36.7 million contract extension back before the Broncos playoff run that led to a Super Bowl 50 championship.
I am uncertain as to what happened since there is not a lot of information. But from the report there was a bit of trash talking going on. My hope is that the punch was thrown in self defense, which that could very well be the case.
Whatever the situation is, until more information comes in, we will not know for sure until all of it comes to the surface. Until then, this will be a story that we will be paying close attention to as it continues to develop.
Hopefully Derek Wolfe is okay and that the punch he threw was in self defense. We will keep you updated on anything that develops.
