The Baltimore Ravens are not playing around this offseason. Despite already having one of the best defenses in football, the front office has made a few upgrades to the defensive line.
Earlier this offseason, the Ravens acquired Calais Campbell in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should provide a huge spark on the field and in the locker room next season.
Baltimore also agreed to terms with Michael Brockers, but the deal fell through due to an issue with his ankle. However, the front office acted quickly to find a suitable replacement for Brockers in free agency.
According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, the Ravens have signed former Denver Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe to a one-year deal that is worth up to $6 million.
Former Broncos’ DE Derek Wolfe reached agreement on an 1-year deal worth up to $6 million with the Baltimore Ravens, per source.

Wolfe had 34 tackles and seven sacks this past season.
During his time with the Broncos, Wolfe has totaled 299 tackles and 33 sacks. He was a key member on the 2015 team that defeated the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl.
Campbell and Wolfe will join a defense that already features Marlon Humphrey, Matthew Judon, Marcus Peters, Earl Thomas and Brandon Williams.
Unfortunately for all other teams in the AFC North, the Ravens are poised to defend their division title.
