As a rookie, Earl Wolff learned a lot from his teammates with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He's already learning from one of his newest teammates.

Since the Eagles gathered last week for informal workouts, Wolff has been modeling himself after free agent safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Jenkins signed with the Eagles in the offseason after a successful stint with the New Orleans Saints.

"I didn't know a lot about him, but I knew of him," Wolff told CSNPhilly.com. "It's a great move by the organization. I can learn a lot from him. Actually I kind of sat behind him in the meeting today. He was taking notes, so I was kinda looking at how he was taking notes, and honestly I think I'm going to start sitting beside him. I know he wouldn't mind helping me out. It's great having a veteran player, a team leader. He knows the game like the back of his hand."

Wolff was the 136th overall pick by the Eagles and played quite well as a rookie until he suffered a knee injury Nov. 10 at Green Bay. It caused him to sit out six of the final seven games.

"To get better, to be a whole lot better, to be more comfortable back there," Wolff told CSNPhilly.com of how he plans on improving in 2014. "I'm a hard worker and I have big expectations for myself."
