Earl Wolff seems to be doing okay in Philadelphia, which is equal parts not surprising and extremely encouraging. There are few football players I've liked more than Wolff over the last few years, because his great effort flew under the radar for the most part, but more importantly because he has an incredible tattoo.
Wolff has gotten some time with the first-string defense during minicamp workouts, which may or may not mean anything. Expecting him to be a starter in year one is probably a stretch, and he seems to have a good grasp of where he stands.
"Honestly, I didn't think much about it at all,'' he said. "Some of my family members saw the articles and made a big deal of it. But it didn't really mean much to me. I was just getting in my reps. Nobody really has a starting job yet.
Of course nobody has a starting job yet. But when the dust clears, Earl Wolff will have taken all of them. He just works that hard. Chip Kelly already has penciled Wolff into a number of different positions, including but not limited to quarterback, safety, wide receiver, running back, and a top secret position he invented while running the read-option in outer space.
