Wolfe, who was selected with the No. 36 overall selection, was taken in the second round to help sure up a defensive line that showed a clear need for reinforcements towards the end of last season.

Wolfe's deal will pay him $5.2 million over four years and features $3.2 million in guaranteed money.
