Eagles safety Earl Wolff sets loftier goals

Earl Wolff attended LeSean McCoy's Shades of Greatness celebrity basketball game Saturday afternoon and discussed various subjects surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles.

Wolff, a second-year safety who contributed quite a bit as a rookie fifth-round draft choice, will have assistance from free-agent safety Malcolm Jenkins along with rookie Ed Reynolds, a fifth-round pick in this year's draft from Stanford.

Wolff suffered a knee injury late last season and was unable to fully build on his early-season momentum.

He has loftier goals this season.

"This year, my goal is to have six or more (interceptions)," Wolff told Philly.com.

How about other goals?

"I haven't sat down and (figured out my season goals) yet," Wolff told Philly.com. "I plan on doing that next week before we start camp, but I'm going to build on my goals from last year."

Wolff believes that learning coach Chip Kelly's system as a rookie will pay bigger dividends in 2014.

"Last year, around the first couple of games, everybody was still learning, still trying to understand the defense," Wolff told Philly.com. "But now, we have it. Everybody, from the younger guys (to the veterans), I feel like everyone is extremely comfortable (in the scheme), everybody is playing fast, everybody is competing, so we're all really excited to see what happens this year."
