Friday, Derek Wolfe stated he signed with the Baltimore Ravens after the Raven’s deal with Michael Brockers fell through.

Wolfe left the Denver Broncos after 8 seasons to join the Ravens on a one-year deal.

Fox News reports that Wolfe claimed:

“I’m extremely happy. Everything happens for a reason, man. When things aren’t supposed to happen, they do. I always thought I would fit into that [Ravens] organization really well. My whole career I thought that. I thought I was going to be drafted by them coming out in 2012. I’m really happy that I’m finally there.”

The 30-year-old defensive tackle almost asked the Broncos to trade him to the Ravens, but opted not to as to show loyalty to the team who drafted him back in 2012.

He told reporters he believed his time with the Broncos was over when they didn’t offer him a contract extension during the season, according to Fox News.
