Wolff, who has played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars, was carjacked and kidnapped by a group of men in West Fayetteville, Georgia, after they surrounded him as he was walking toward his car. They forced him into his 2011 Range Rover and made him drive to an undisclosed location, where they held him for short period of time. Police located Wolff about 10 miles away and found his car 25 miles away. They have a suspect in custody.
