Eric Weddle Takes Shots at Chargers via Twitter

It looks like the Ravens safety still holds a grudge over the way his Chargers career ended. It's no secret that Eric Weddle and the Chargers suffered a very ugly breakup that led to Weddle leaving the team and eventually signing with the Baltimore Ravens. While the Chargers have moved on (four more years of Jahleel Addae!) and tried to quietly brush the situation under the carpet, it doesn't look like Weddle is quite so quick to forgive, tweeting this after the news broke that King Dunlap was to be released: Sorry to hear about my boy King. Doesn't suprise me tho, that's how they treat...

Weddle cheap-shots Chargers on Dunlap's release

By God, the sportswriting dodge is a gas. One minute you’re writing about football, the next minute you’re pushed into the role of defender who sticks up for rascals of ill repute. In this instance, it’s a football player, former Chargers star Eric Weddle of the Bolts-poaching Baltimore Ravens,...

Eric Weddle takes shot at Chargers organization

The Los Angeles Chargers have built an unsavory reputation when it comes to player relations, and their former safety Eric Weddle directly confirmed this with a tweet after the release of offensive tackle King Dunlap: Sorry to hear about my boy King. Doesn't suprise me tho, that's how they treat the good players there. https://t.co/VMdrVoO33e— Eric Weddle (@weddlesbeard) March 13, 2017 The big beard from the top rope. When Weddle left the then San Diego Chargers following 2015, it was reported as a highly contentious split, and Weddle essentially confirmed when stating, “he would...

With Tony Jefferson signing, Ravens secondary has chance to be elite

The signing of Tony Jefferson was not universally lauded amongst Ravens fans but by and large, the move was touted as positive, even despite the price tag. Jefferson will prove to be a better box safety than Eric Weddle, thanks to his size and the violence he packs in his tackles. Weddle being a safer, “break down and get square” tackler in the open field is likely to be better suited for a move to free safety. He will prove to be a more instinctive safety than Lardarius Webb. With the semantics out of the way, the Ravens can now field two versatile, playmaking safeties, which will...

ICYMI: Barnwell gives the Ravens a B- for the Williams and Jefferson signings

ICYMI: Barnwell gives the Ravens a B- for the Williams and Jefferson signings

Bill Barnwell is a respected sports writer for ESPN. He takes an analytical approach to provide analysis on the NFL draft, free agency, salary cap management and coaching strategy. Here is his take on the Baltimore Ravens two major signings so far in free agency: Tony Jefferson, RavensGrade: B-You know a player is talented when the Ravens are willing to sign him and risk forgoing a comp pick. Baltimore did just that with a safety for the second consecutive offseason, signing Jefferson from Arizona to play alongside Eric Weddle. The move will likely bring an end to Lardarius Webb's Ravens...

Ozzie Newsome has taken a radically different approach to the 2017 offseason, and it is working perfectly

Ozzie Newsome has taken a radically different approach to the 2017 offseason, and it is working perfectly

Who is manning the ship in Baltimore, and what have they done with Ozzie Newsome? Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is well known for sitting out the initial free agent frenzy, and scooping up the leftovers. Last year, the Ravens placed the Franchise Tag on Justin Tucker at virtually the last possible second. In addition, the Ravens brought in Mike Wallace, Eric Weddle and Jerraud Powers all in the latter stages of free agency. Newsome also loves bringing in aging stars for low cost. Steve Smith Sr. and Weddle are great examples of this. Both came in on team friendly contracts and...

What You Are Getting With Jabril Peppers

Kyle Posey takes an in-depth look at Michigan’s Jabril Peppers. In a recent mock draft, NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks had the Chargers taking Jabril Peppers at 7 overall. I’ve had thoughts on how Peppers game translates to the NFL for some time and now that he’s back to being mocked that high, and specifically to this team, there’s no better time to talk about him. Jabrill Peppers - S, Michigan: The Michigan standout would add some juice to the Chargers' secondary as a versatile playmaker. He will remind Chargers' fans of four-time Pro Bowler Eric Weddle. “Versatile” is the...
