 Wolfe finds niche on special teams
posted 8 years ago

Michael Turner is the pride of Northern Illinois University at the moment, and he'll be front and center Sunday when the Bears visit the Atlanta Falcons. Another record-setting Huskies running back, Garrett Wolfe, has a less prominent role in the NFL. Yet, in his own way, he has excelled, too. "It's tough, but it's about making the most of your opportunities, and that's something I've always prided myself on," Wolfe said. While Turner is the centerpiece of the surprising Falcons' offense, Wolfe has settled for a spot on the Bears' coverage teams. Such a function would seem unlikely for a 5-foot-7, 186-pound player who is used to eluding tackles rather than making them. But Wolfe has done his job well. With nine tackles through five games, Wolfe is tied with Jamar Williams for the team lead in special-teams tackles. Wolfe had four tackles in the Sunday night victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. "Being the third running back on the depth chart, [playing special teams] was mentioned to me last year," Wolfe said. "It was something I didn't want to do because I had never done it before. As the season progressed, I wasn't doing anything, and I wanted to help this team win and be a part of the team winning." Wolfe finished with four special teams tackles as a rookie in 2007. This season, with Brendon Ayanbadejo off to the Baltimore Ravens in free agency and Rod Wilson having been waived after an injury, Wolfe has helped fill the void. As a little guy, "you have to know how to pick your battles," Wolfe said. "Sometimes you may have to go low [on a tackle]. That's the easiest way to get a guy down because you can't go anywhere without your legs."
