Much better value than Brockers, and he adds more as a pass rusher.

Unfortunately agree.

If he can stay healthy then he's definitely still capable of contributing. The problem is that he hasn't shown he can stay healthy for a very long time.

Should help that he's joining a much stronger rotation than he's had in Denver since we won a Superbowl.

Everyone said the same about Earl Thomas last year. Not sure about Wolfe's history but a dislocated Elbow or whatever it was doesn't sound like something that's really within his control, much like Thomas' leg injuries.

Really love the value here compared to spending $10 million on Brockers. Only big advantage Brockers has had over Wolfe is an ability to stay healthy, so if that was something we were also going to be worried about with Brockers as it seemed to be, then getting a superior player for much cheaper is a great deal.

What has control got to do with anything? How many injury prone players suffer their injuries due to things inside of their control?

Wolfe has had numerous ailments but neck issues are the most concerning for sure, including surgery in early 2018 I think. They resurfaced again last year but he soldiered on.

Yes - the neck stingers are where Wolfe is at risk

1 year $6M?  Wolfe was just stating how it's so ridiculous he shouldn't get paid at least as much if not over as he did last year which was over $10M.  I suppose the DL market is a bit dead this year.

Who is going to make all the tackles at ILB with that sweet DL of Campbell, Wolfe and Williams in the middle?  If Campbell is healthy all year that DL could be great, but again who will play ILB for them?  Got to draft someone no doubt.

In the last 5 years he's only played 16 games once, only issue I ever had with him
