Back in July 2021, the Baltimore Ravens signed offensive tackle Ju’Wuan James to a two-year deal worth up to $9 million, taking a flyer on former first-round tackle who suffered an Achilles injury in April 2021. Today, James received a $500k roster bonus and the “Ravens [are] fine with that,” according to The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec.
Zrebiec also reported defensive end Derek Wolfe’s $2 million base salary for the 2022 season becomes injury guaranteed. Wolfe dealt with a back injury that kept him out for the 2021 season. Wolfe also posted on Twitter that he underwent hip surgery in mid-January and that it was a success.

Wolfe has been discussing the past week as he was quoted on the “Blood Origins” hunting podcast saying, “We’ll see what happens with if I retire or not or if I keep playing. I’m not sure yet. We’ve got to see how this hip goes.”
