NOTES:

I always thought Josh got a bad wrap. His 2010 was a really solid campaign, and while he did survive the Raheem Morris epoch, he was able to rally the team to a decent 7-9 record while posting some pretty decent numbers.

I had worked with my friend Chris in tracking down Josh’s address. He wasn’t at the top of my list, so I let Chris at him first. After he got a success, I went ahead and put my cards together and sent them out.

Weddle, Eric

Cards: Score 2009, Score 2010
Acquired: TTM 2020, C/o Home
Sent: 6/16 Received: 7/30 (44 days)

Eric Weddle played 13 seasons in the NFL and quietly earned All-Pro Honors 5 times over his career playing free safety. A well conditioned ironman and gym rat from his time playing for the Utah Utes, Eric saw time as a defensive back, runningback, and punt returner over his time at the college.

“He should win the Heisman- I sincerely mean that”

– Wyoming coach Joe Glenn

Weddle finished with 143 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 18 interceptions for 148 yards, and 3 TDs. He also posted 52 rushes for 232 yards and 6 TDs, along with 52 punt returns for 408 yards. Eric was selected in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers, (after they traded a couple of picks to Chicago to move up and grab him). Over 9 seasons with the Chargers, Eric posted 851 total tackles, 19 interceptions for 290 yards and 3 TDs, 70 pass deflections, and 5 forced fumbles. His best season as a pro came in 2011, when he posted 7 interceptions for 89 yards, 11 pass deflections and 88 combined tackles. His 7 picks led the NFL.

In 2016, Weddle joined the Baltimore Ravens as a free agent. He regained his Pro Bowl form and earned trips for the next two consecutive seasons after that, while adding another 10 interceptions, 220 tackles and 24 pass deflections to his resume. He retired after the 2019 season in which he spent playing for his hometown Los Angeles Rams, where he recorded 108 tackles. Weddle is a member of the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team- a decade in which he earned Pro Bowl honors for 2011, 2013, 2014, 2016-2018, and first or second team AP for his efforts in 2010-2014.
