The Ravens agreed to an injury deal with DL Derek Wolfe following his second hip surgery in five months.

Coach John Harbaugh announced Tuesday that the Ravens have dealt with Derek Wolfe for injury, ending the quarterback’s tenure with Baltimore after just 14 games.

Wolfe, who missed all of last season with hip and back injuries, announced on Monday that he had undergone his second hip surgery in five months. His $2 million salary this season was fully guaranteed and he had to deduct $3.8 million towards the salary cap. It’s unclear how the settlement of the Ravens injury will affect his cap form.

After signing a three-year, $12 million contract extension in March 2021, Wolf said he hoped to develop a strong debut season in Baltimore. But Wolfe, 32, suffered an apparent back injury at training camp last year, was scheduled to return in late October from injured reserves and was never healthy enough to return.

During his appearance on the March hunting podcast, Wolfe discussed the possibility of retiring, although he later tweeted that he was considering returning. His wife shared on social media on Monday that Wolfe had surgery in January on his right hip and had to wait until recently to have surgery on his left hip.

In an Instagram story on Monday, Wolfe said he wanted to live a “normal life.” Wolfe has long dealt with injuries; he has missed 39 games in the last nine seasons. On a hunting podcast, he said he wants to make sure he’s healthy enough to hunt after his football career is over. His young daughter has shown an interest in hunting, Wolfe said in a podcast, and he wants to make sure he can take her.

“She has a little plastic bow and arrows that when I shoot she wants to come out and shoot, you know?” Wulff said in March. “She wants to do everything that dad does. So I already know she’s going to want to be a part of it, and that’s what she’s going to want to do. And, you know, we’ll see. You know, killing isn’t for everyone, but I love being in the woods. I love being in the wild. I want to involve my family in this as well.”

Wolfe has started eight of 14 games in 2020, recording 51 tackles, six tackles for loss and one sack, and has become one of the best defensemen in the league in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. He has not played since.

“We had a really good game,” linebacker Calais Campbell said of Wolfe on Tuesday.

He and Campbell helped turn the Ravens defensive front into one of the NFL’s best run-stopping units. In 2020, the Ravens allowed the eighth-most yards in the league.

“He’s a Raven at heart,” Campbell said. “We definitely had a lot of fun together. I enjoyed being his teammate.”

This offseason, the Ravens bolstered their defensive line by bringing back Campbell, Michael Pierce and Brent Urban, and drafted Connecticut defenseman Travis Jones in the third round. Pierce, however, was absent from the first day of a mandatory mini-camp on Tuesday in what Harbaugh called a “private matter.”
