According to Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos have officially picked up the $1 million option on DE Derek Wolfe’s contract for the 2019 season on Thursday.
Broncos executive VP John Elway confirmed they were making this move, so this isn’t a big surprise.
Wolfe, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $36.7 million contract that included $17.5 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $8 million for the 2019 season.
In 2018, Wolfe appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and recorded 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception, a fumble recovery and six pass defenses.
