    Derek Wolfe

    . Derek Wolfe is back.

    He looked like it when he walked onto the practice field the last few days. By organized team activities, he'd gained back much of the weight he lost during a 2013 season derailed by a neck injury and subsequent complications.

    Friday, he played like it. On the opening snap of the second team period of practice -- when the Broncos were focused on rushing and run defense -- he burst past Ryan Clady into the backfield, where he left Montee Ball nowhere to go.

    Wolfe consistently generated pressure from the edge, and looked like he did as a rookie, when he finished with six sacks. Fellow swing end/tackle Malik Jackson also generated pressure when he had the opportunity.

    If the defensive line stays healthy, the unit suddenly looks deeper than it has in years.
    Derek Wolfe is a great story - glad to see him ripping it during camp - strength and speed are back.

    in the larger picture - things are looking really good for this defense and front seven. The Broncos will have some very interesting roster decisions.

    Alfred Williams always has hated the Wolfe pick and has never let an opportunity go by that he doesn't rag on him. But this week he has been very positive about Derek. Which begs the question; has Al changed or is Derek playing that much better?

    The Broncos will have hell to pay with the set of contracts coming due - and a Super Bowl victory - inflating everyone's opinion about themselves.
