Impending free agent FS Eric Weddle told reporters on Monday that he may never speak to the Chargers' organization again.
Weddle said he won't get to the bottom of his falling out with the Chargers "because I probably won't ever speak to them again." Weddle said he's looking for the "right fit" in free agency, and a "chance to win a title." Weddle, who was placed on injured reserve two weeks ago, said Monday there is "no doubt" he was healthy enough to play in Sunday's finale against Denver. Jan 4 - 1:32 PM

The Chargers fined FS Eric Weddle $10,000 for staying on the field last Sunday to watch his daughter perform in a dance ceremony at halftime of San Diego's Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

It was impending free agent Weddle's final home game as a Charger. Weddle was "stunned" and "furious" for being fined for what the Chargers comically labeled "conduct detrimental to the team." On Monday, the Chargers placed Weddle on I.R. "against his wishes" after informing him "there is not room on the plane for him" to make the team's Week 17 trip to Denver.

Chargers placed FS Eric Weddle (groin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Weddle played through groin pain his entire 2015 season. He finished with 77 tackles and six pass breakups across 13 starts. After a falling out with the organization, Weddle is expected to hit the free agent market this offseason. He's still only 31 years old and will be a hot commodity.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle was forced from San Diego's Week 16 game against the Raiders with a groin injury, and will not return.

RCB Jason Verrett (hamstring) is also done for the evening. The injuries hollow out a secondary that had been significantly slowing Derek Carr. Headed for free agency, it's possible the injury means Weddle has played his final snap as a Bolt.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle (groin, probable) returned to practice on Friday.

Weddle has battled groin issues off and on all year. He should be able to play Sunday against Jacksonville.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle (groin) and CB Jason Verrett (groin) are active for Monday night's Week 9 game against the Bears.

Both were listed as questionable. Weddle returns after missing two weeks and being subject of trade rumors. Verrett will likely be tasked with shadowing Bears No. 1 WR Alshon Jeffery. Inactive for the Bolts are TE Ladarius Green (ankle), S Darrell Stuckey, DE Corey Liuget (foot), ILB Manti Te'o (ankle), LT King Dunlap (ankle), and LG Orlando Frankin (knee). They're really banged up.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle (groin) hopes to return this week.

"I’m feeling really good actually," he said. "We’ll see how the week progresses and how I’m able to ramp things up." The team Weddle will be returning to is still a question. Multiple reporters have said the Chargers are shopping Weddle, who is in the final year of his deal, with as many as four teams interested in acquiring his services. The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Giants are "one of four teams" to express interest in trading for Chargers FS Eric Weddle.

The Giants have had a hole at free safety ever since they chose not to re-sign Antrel Rolle in the offseason. Veteran journeymen Craig Dahl and Brandon Meriweather have been soaking up snaps for the Giants next to rookie SS Landon Collins. Weddle would provide a big boost to a secondary that just gave up a league-record seven touchdowns to Drew Brees on Sunday.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Chargers are shopping FS Eric Weddle ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline.

The Chargers are 2-6 and bringing up the rear of the AFC West. Weddle, 31 in January, is in the final year of his contract, so the Bolts could simply be looking for a draft pick that would be more than they get for losing Weddle in the form of a compensatory pick. The Chargers have already hinted they won't re-sign Weddle. Weddle has missed the last two games with a groin injury, but should be healthy soon. When on the field, he's a leader and above-average "center fielder."

Chargers FS Eric Weddle (groin) is out for Week 8 against the Ravens.

Weddle hasn't played or practiced since hurting his groin in Week 6. Jahleel Addae will draw another start at free safety.

Chargers FS Eric Weddle is not expected to play in Week 8.

San Diego's once-decent secondary got torched by Derek Carr & Co. with Weddle out of the lineup in Week 7. The Chargers face Joe Flacco this week.

Chargers S Eric Weddle (groin) is out for Week 7 against the Raiders.

Weddle exited Sunday's game with a groin issue and wasn't able to practice this week. Jahleel Addae and Darrell Stuckey should both see time at free safety during his absence. This will be the first game Weddle has missed since 2009.
Fri, Oct 23, 2015 03:05:00 PM

Chargers S Eric Weddle exited Week 6 against the Packers with a groin injury.

Weddle was struggling to walk in the locker room on Monday, and The San Diego Union-Tribune believes his availability for Week 7 against Oakland could be in jeopardy. Weddle has not missed a game since 2009.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Chargers FS Eric Weddle is on pace for career-year in tackles.

Scheduled to hit free agency in 2016, 30-year old Eric Weddle has 27 total tackles through three games, and is currently on pace to break triple-digit solo tackles. Only Dolphins SS Reshad Jones has more tackles (33), yet Weddle (170 snaps) has been limited by the low number of defensive snaps the Chargers have played this season to date. Of starting safeties in the league, only the Titans duo of Da'Norris Searcy (160) and Michael Griffin (163) have played less snaps, which suggests Weddle should challenge to be the No.1 fantasy DB this season at his current rate of production.

Contract-year FS Eric Weddle believes he's headed into his final season with the Chargers.

Due $7.5 million in the final year of his contract, Weddle is unhappy the Bolts haven't played ball on an extension. A 2007 second-rounder, Weddle turned 30 in January. He's spent his entire career in San Diego, and been a playmaker throughout. He remained one of the league's top safeties in 2014.
