Chargers S Eric Weddle left Thursday night's loss to the Raiders early with a groin injury and did not return. That's the same issue that cause him to miss 2 games earlier this season, his first lost games since 2009. We'll see about his status heading into next week, but it'll be tough to trust him in Week 17 IDP lineups. Weddle will turn 30 in January and then hit unrestricted free agency in March (if he doesn't re-sign in the meantime, of course). Top Chargers CB Jason Verrett also left the Oakland loss early with a hamstring injury. San Diego will have little reason to press him into duty next Sunday if he's anywhere short of 100%.
Rams S Eric Weddle suffered a head laceration against the Panthers and is officially doubtful to return. We'll see about his status heading into Week 2.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Rams will sign S Eric Weddle, whom Baltimore released earlier this week. Weddle -- who turned 34 in January -- still checked in 10th among safeties in Pro Football Focus grading last season. He's expected to step in for S LaMarcus Joyner, who will hit free agency next week.
The Ravens are releasing veteran S Eric Weddle. It's a salary-driven move on a player Pro Football Focus graded 10th-best among safeties in 2018, his age-33 season. Weddle should be able to find a new home if he wants to keep playing. We'll see who Baltimore taps to replace him.
Former Chargers S Eric Weddle tweeted Monday that he will be signing with the Ravens. Adam Schefter reports that it's a 4-year, $26 million deal. According to ESPN.com, the team is now expected to release either S Will Hill or S Kendrick Lewis. Weddle, 31, will likely start next to Lardarius Webb, who deemed himself in January a free safety going forward. Weddle can play in coverage and in the box and should be the best bet for trustworthy IDP numbers the Baltimore secondary has contained in a long time. The Chargers had already signed S Dwight Lowery from the Colts to replace Weddle.
The Chargers on Monday placed S Eric Weddle (groin) on IR. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the team also informed him that he wouldn't be allowed on the flight to Denver for Sunday's season finale. That likely brings a sad end to a nice Chargers career for Weddle, who is set to hit unrestricted free agency after 9 seasons in San Diego. After Monday's moves, Weddle's agent revealed via Twitter that the team had recently fined the safety $10,000 for staying on the field during halftime of the home win vs. Miami to watch his daughter perform with a dance team. Stay classy, San Diego.
