Broncos aware of video showing DE Wolfe's punch

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos say they are aware of a video that shows defensive end Derek Wolfe throwing a punch in a Denver nightclub Saturday night.

The video, posted by TMZ on its website, shows Wolfe first having a verbal exchange with one or more persons, followed by some pushing and shoving in a group as Wolfe then throws a right-handed punch in a crowd.

TMZ reported that Wolfe was later bloodied, after being hit with a bottle, in the altercation and left the VIE nightclub.

Sources with the team said the police were not called to incident.

Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth, in a statement Tuesday morning, said; “Derek talked to us on Monday about the issue and it’s been addressed internally.”

Whether that means Wolfe will be fined by the team or faced some other team-imposed discipline is unclear. The Broncos open their offseason program April 18, but those workouts are voluntary for players, as are the organized team activities (OTAs) in May and June.

The only mandatory days for players before training camp are a June minicamp.

It is the second time since the Broncos won Super Bowl 50 one of their players has been caught on late-night video that has made its way to TMZ. Former quarterback Brock Osweiler, and his wife, were videoed trying to walk away from a verbal exchange with several people outside a pizza restaurant last month in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Osweiler, who was shoved from behind in the video just before getting in a car, did not respond to the push.

At the league meetings last month, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said he believed the team’s players had handled the offseason well.
