Ravens signed FS Eric Weddle, formerly of the Chargers, to a four-year, $26 million contract.
The deal includes $13 million guaranteed. Weddle was reportedly deciding between four teams. Although he remained one of the league's best safeties in 2015, the Chargers made no effort to re-sign a player they took with the No. 37 overall pick of the 2007 draft. There's bad blood, with Weddle saying he may never speak to the team again. Weddle fills a huge need for the Ravens, who received ineffective play opposite SS Will Hill in 2015. Although he's now 31, Weddle has missed only three games since 2009. Weddle is a playmaker who doubles as a tackling machine at the back end of the defense. Mar 14 - 1:36 PM

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette said it "sounds like" free agent S Eric Weddle is leaning toward signing with the Patriots.

He is visiting the Patriots on Monday. Weddle has offers from four teams on the table, but he is expected to narrow the list to two this week. Along with the Patriots, it could make sense for Weddle to join the Raiders. Oakland has more money to spend than New England and plays in the same division as the Chargers, who Weddle had a very public falling out with last season. The Cowboys, Steelers and Panthers are also reportedly involved.

Free agent S Eric Weddle is expected to narrow his suitors from four to two this week.

Weddle reportedly has four contract offers on the table. He plans to reject two of them "without a counter," narrowing his choices to two. Although Weddle has so far kept the identity of the teams interested in him a secret, they are rumored to be some combination of the Panthers, Raiders, Ravens, Steelers, and Cowboys. After Weddle's publicized falling out with the Chargers' organization, one way to exact revenge would be to sign with the division-rival Raiders, who could probably also make Weddle his strongest contract offer.

Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer doesn't expect the Panthers to get in a bidding war for free agent S Eric Weddle.

This falls in line with a similar report last week that suggested Carolina had interest in Weddle but only at the right price. Weddle prefers to play for a contender but is also aware this could be his last chance to land a big contract. The three-time Pro Bowler already has offers from four teams and is expected to choose a new home in the next few days.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent S Eric Weddle has offers from four teams.

Per Rapsheet, Weddle will take the weekend to weigh his options before making a decision on Monday. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is hearing the Ravens, Steelers and Cowboys are all "keeping close tabs" on Weddle. The Raiders have been linked to him as well.
Mar 11 - 8:34 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms the Raiders are interested in free agent S Eric Weddle.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported earlier Thursday that the Raiders were "working on" the longtime Bolt. Per Acee, Weddle has "at least four irons in the fire." Although he's now 31, Weddle is one of the better players remaining in free agency.
Mar 10 - 10:13 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects free agent FS Eric Weddle to "take his time" choosing a new team.

La Canfora does not expect a decision "anytime soon." Weddle turned 31 in January, but he still was an above-average safety last season. He should be able to find a starting role on a contender. The Raiders are reportedly "working on" him.
Mar 10 - 9:20 PM

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur, the Raiders are "working on" free agent S Eric Weddle.

Tafur says he hasn't been able to confirm that Weddle will visit the team yet, but it sounds like a visit might be in the works. Aside from this news, Weddle's market has been silent nearing the 24-hour mark into the NFL's new league year, though the Panthers were rumored to have some interest late last week. Weddle, 31, and Reggie Nelson, 33, are free agency's top safeties left.
Mar 10 - 3:14 PM

The Panthers are interested in free agent FS Eric Weddle, according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer.

Coach Ron Rivera and DBs coach Steve Wilks both worked with Weddle during their time in San Diego. Weddle has been to the playoffs once in his last six seasons and would welcome a chance to play for a Super Bowl contender. Weddle can play both strong and free safety, and would be an upgrade on declining free agent SS Roman Harper. The Panthers don't expect to spend big money this offseason, so it remains to be seen if Weddle is a realistic target or merely a pipe dream.
Mar 6 - 9:56 AM

GM Tom Telesco said the Chargers will not use the franchise tag this offseason.

The Bolts haven't franchised anyone since 2011 when they tagged Vincent Jackson. Their only real candidate this year is Eric Weddle, though he's been pretty vocal in his desire to leave San Diego, going as far as to say he'll never speak with anyone in the organization again. Weddle would earn $12.2 million under the franchise tag, but that's not going to happen.
Feb 21 - 9:04 AM

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.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 02:00:00 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 10:28:00 PM

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.
