S - FA - OUT
Eric Weddle announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday.
Weddle, who spent the majority of his career with the Chargers, was first-team All-Pro in both 2011 and 2014. He also played for the Ravens from 2016-18 before spending this past season with the Rams. Weddle was the rare safety who seamlessly handed his coverage responsibilities while also being an excellent tackler.
Eric Weddle finished Sunday’s 55-40 loss to the Buccaneers with the team high 14 tackles (10 solo).
Weddle is currently third on the Rams in total tackles (34) and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. He is a great start in deeper leagues or in fantasy leagues that require starting a player at the safety position.
Rams safety Eric Weddle left Sunday’s win over the Panthers with a gruesome looking injury to his head. He is now in concussion protocol.
Weddle was a bloody mess after he was kneed in the head by a leaping Christian McCaffrey. Marqui Christian replaced him in the lineup. Weddle will need to clear protocol in order to play in Week 2 against the Saints.
Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle was not unemployed for long. Just three days after his release from Baltimore, Weddle has agreed to a deal with the Rams.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported the deal as a two-year contract with a base salary of $10.5 million and a max value of $12.5 million. The signing comes just days before Lamarcus Joyner will become an unrestricted free agent, a strong indication that he will land elsewhere in free agency.
Star safety Eric Weddle was released by the Ravens in a shocking move Tuesday evening.
Weddle hinted at the possibility of a move following Baltimore’s playoff loss to the Chargers, “not sure if things are going to get worked out with Baltimore.” Even so, the move came as a surprise considering how important Weddle has been to the Ravens’ defense. The 34-year-old had been due a $6.5 million base salary for 2019. The six-time Pro Bowler won’t have any trouble finding a new team this offseason.
