Redskins sign former Eagles safety Wolff


The Redskins have signed former Eagles safety Earl Wolff to a futures contract.

Wolff was a fifth-round draft pick of Philadelphia in 2013. A knee injury derailed him there and he played in 18 games, starting seven, over the 2013-2014 seasons. He had 43 tackles, one interception, and six passes defensed with the Eagles.

After being waived by Philadelphia he caught on with the Jaguars’ practice squad but he never made it to the 53-man roster before being released last September. He did not play at all during the 2015 or 2016 seasons.

But the Redskins are in need of help at safety and it can’t hurt to have the Wolff, who is 5-11, 209 and turned 27 last month, get a shot at earning a roster spot.
