Eric Weddle signs with Baltimore Ravens

-

Free agent safety Eric Weddle has signed a four-year, $26 million deal with the Baltimore Ravens, according to Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

A former second-round pick out of Utah, Weddle will receive $13 million in guaranteed money. He spent the entirety of his career with the San Diego Chargers prior to this day and left them on incredibly bad terms, with San Diego not even making an effort to re-sign him.

In spite of that, Weddle is a great signing for the Ravens. He has missed just three games since 2009 and will provide excellent play in Baltimore’s secondary, which has been hampered by inconsistency for years. Though 31 years old, he has played in three Pro Bowls and owns career marks of 850 tackles, 19 interceptions and five forced fumbles. In 2011, he led the NFL with seven interceptions.

Simply put, with an elite tackler and defender in Weddle on the team, the Ravens can look forward to bouncing back from last year’s uncharacteristic 5-11 finish.
