The Philadelphia Eagles reached an injury settlement with safety Earl Wolff, according to Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

What this means is Wolff will not revert to Philadelphia's injured reserve list after clearing waivers. Instead, he will be a free agent available to sign with any team.

The Eagles unsurprisingly waived Wolff late last week. According to Chip Kelly, Wolff had a scope done. Kelly also explained why the team felt it was time to move on:

"He just wasn’t going to be here until we got the cut to 75 or the cut to 53.  So he was not going to be ‑‑ and we needed to get another DB in here.  You look at the reps we had against the Ravens and we are concerned with some guys in terms of how many reps they are getting.  So we just need to get some other bodies in here. It’s unfortunate."

With Wolff out of the picture, the Eagles signed his former college teammate, safety Brandan Bishop, to take his roster spot. Bishop will wear No. 28, which was formerly Wolff's jersey number.
