It’s not often that an All-Pro safety hits the open market.
Eric Weddle, a three-time Pro Bowler and two-time first team All-Pro, is set to become a free agent after spending the first nine seasons of his career with the San Diego Chargers. So, where will he go?
"In the next three or four years, are they going to be competitive, are they going to be division winners, are we going to have a chance at the Super Bowl," Weddle told the Union-Tribune of his criteria.
Hmmm, interesting. The Pittsburgh Steelers need help at safety. The Indianapolis Colts could probably use him. Maybe even the — gasp! — New England Patriots. If Weddle’s willing to accept less money, his options are endless.
Weddle could work as a valuable veteran presence in any locker room. He could also push an already solid team over the top. We’ll have to wait and see.
