Jaguars S Earl Wolff unharmed in robbery, kidnapping
Jacksonville Jaguars safety Earl Wolff was unharmed after being kidnapped and robbed last month, reports Fox News.
Wolff, 26, was attacked by a group of men with guns while walking in North Carolina on Feb. 23. He was forced into a vehicle and driven away, but was eventually released by his captors without injury.
Jaguars senior manager of public relations Tad Dickman tweeted Saturday that Wolff is “doing well, mentally [and] physically.” He also asked that the media respect Wolff’s privacy during this time.
Bobby Deshawn Bailey has been arrested for his involvement in the incident and charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping, conspiracy, larceny, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and possession of marijuana. No other suspects have been named in the incident.
Wolff signed a futures contract with Jacksonville in January after being signed to the Jaguars’ practice squad in December. He spent the first two seasons of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, before being waived by the team last August.
Wolff has recorded 52 combined tackles and one interception in 18 career NFL games.
