Just two days after announcing that the team reached a four-year contract with second-round pick Derek Wolfe, the Denver Broncos announced on Wednesday afternoon that Wolfe officially signed his contract with the team:

Wolfe sat out organized team activities because Cincinnati had not yet held its graduation, a rule in place that prevents him from taking part in it. He was, however, involved in rookie minicamp earlier in the season. He will take part in the final minicamp in the middle of June.
Wolfe's contract calls for $5.2 million over four years with $3.2 million guaranteed. He is expected to compete for serious playing time with Ty Warren and Kevin Vickerson.
