Eric Weddle's agent endorses trade from Bolts to Dolphins on Twitter
The Miami Dolphins suffered a huge blow on Wednesday when Louis Delmas suffered a torn ACL in practice. Delmas was the team's starting safety next to Reshad Jones, leaving a hole in the secondary that needs to be filled.
Second-year safety Walt Aikens or third-year player Michael Thomas are the most likely candidates to replace Delmas for now, but there's a safety in San Diego whose agent would love to see him play in Miami.
Eric Weddle is in the final year of his five-year contract and is looking for a long-term deal, but the Chargers have been reluctant to give it to him. Because of that, it's opened rumors of a possible trade, of which Weddle's agent approves.
David Canter is located in Miami and simply wants to have his "best friend" there with him. However, San Diego fans can breathe a sigh of relief because a trade to Miami isn't happening, according to Canter. Sorry, Dolphins fans.
@JasonLaCanfora it’s not going to happen. Teams don’t typically trade their best players. Chargers fans can relax. Eric is safe for 2015— DEC Management (@davidcanter) August 19, 2015
Still, it's interesting to see an agent endorsing a trade on Twitter of all places. As Canter said, a trade (probably) isn't happening given how great of a player Weddle is, but it's a fun discussion nonetheless.
