    Broncos' Derek Wolfe: Signs four-year extension

    Wolfe signed a four-year contract extension with the Broncos on Friday. Wolfe's new deal comes after he was suspended for this season's first four games, but came back and enjoyed the best campaign of his four-year career. To that point, Wolfe totaled 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks in 12 games played, emerging as a long-term option at defensive end along the way. With the ink drying on his new contract, Wolfe figures to enter Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers full of confidence.

    Broncos DE Derek Wolfe gets four-game suspension

    Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe has been suspended four games by the NFL for a violation of the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy, the team announced on Friday. Wolfe will remain with the team through training camp and the preseason, but will no be eligible to return after that until the team's Week 4 matchup against the Vikings. Wolfe said that a medication he took triggered the positive test. "During the offseason I took a medication which is on the banned substance list," he said in the statement. "The medication is not a substance which would enhance my on-field performance in any way and I genuinely was unaware that it was prohibited, but players are responsible for what is in their bodies. "I will certainly exercise far greater caution in the future and will seek advice relating to the permissibility of any and all medications." Wolfe recorded 35 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Broncos last season.

    Derek Wolfe says he's finally healthy

    Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe, who suffered a seizure in November, said he's finally healthy and ready to resume his career, reports "I'm ready to go. I'm going to be better than I was," said Wolfe, who has regained 20 of the 30 pounds he lost and is up to 280. Doctors believe the seizure stemmed from a spinal cord injury Wolfe suffered in the preseason, the report said. "I had a bruise on my spinal cord," he said. "I thought it was fully healed and I came back a little too soon and I just kept hitting it, kept hitting it, kept hitting it. And it screwed my nervous system up a little bit, just kind of crisscrossed the wires a little bit. "And really just mentally, it was hard to deal with because I didn't know what was going on and why I was losing weight and all this, and my adrenals weren't functioning right, nothing was really working right and what it came down to was I needed to let it heal, I needed to let myself heal. So, I took about two months and I just did nothing. And I feel better than I've ever felt before."
