These 3 players should sign one-day contracts and retire with Broncos
Players who should retire with Broncos: Derek Wolfe
Within the last two weeks, Derek Wolfe was released by the Baltimore Ravens with an injury settlement after just two seasons with the team. That stint came after he spent eight years in Denver.
A second-round pick in the 2012 draft, many at first thought that John Elway missed in the draft by trading back to select Wolfe. But that pick more than paid off.
Wolfe became an integral piece of the team’s defense which was built up before winning Super Bowl 50. You can make an argument that Wolfe was the most underrated player on that championship squad.
Wolfe had 33 sacks in his Denver career but he was also a strong leader and a player who was always around the ball making plays. He was much better than he ever got credit for.
Wolfe played in 14 games for the Ravens in 2020 but a hip injury caused him to miss the entire 2021 season. Wolfe is now 32 years old and the time to hang it up certainly seems near.
Signing a one-day deal to retire with the team that drafted him would be a nice way to put a stamp on it.
