Derek Wolfe returned to the Denver Broncos active roster on Monday after serving a four-game suspension to start the 2015 season stemming from a league PED policy violation.

Wolfe owned his mistake and vowed to make right to his teammates and Broncos fans. He’ll have his first chance to start doing that on Sunday when the Broncos travel to Oakland.

But Wolfe’s suspension puts head coach Gary Kubiak and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips in an interesting position. They currently have the best defense in football, led by the No. 1 passing defense and the No. 8 rushing defense. Wolfe was the entrenched starter and played through the preseason, but the defense played at an unprecedented level without him.

Wolfe’s return begs the question, “Why fix what isn’t broken?” Should Wolfe start and get the majority of snaps over Vance Walker or Antonio Smith?

We posed that very question to Dee White and Kent Erickson of Mile High Sports AM 1340 for this week’s edition of “In My Humble Opinion.”

Erickson says this is big boy football. White says chemistry is the key.

One thing that neither is debating is the fact that Denver’s defense just got better, regardless of how much Wolfe plays on Sunday.
