Eric Weddle Biography
Eric Weddle was born January 4, 1985 and is a safety for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Utah, and was recognized as an All-American. A second-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, he has played professionally for the Chargers since 2007. He currently resides in Escondido, California. He is considered to be one of the best safeties in the NFL.
Weddles all-around game improved each year and in 2010, he received his first all-pro honors when he was selected to the APs All-Pro second team after the Chargers finished the season ranked first in the NFL in pass defense. Weddle helped turn around a pass defense that just two seasons earlier ranked second-to-last in the league. Within months, the Chargers rewarded Weddle with a new five-year, $40 million contract in July 2011. It was the largest contract ever for a Free Safety wich made up for high expectations.
He had a breakout 2011 season with 88 tackles and a career-high seven interceptions. He helped clinch two early-season back-to-back wins with late fourth-quarter interceptions, becoming just the third Chargers defender to do so in the previous 20 years. It was the beginning of a Pro Bowl season in which Weddle tied for the NFL lead with a career-high seven picks. Weddle was also voted to the Pro Bowl, accompanied by his selection as the Chargers Defensive Player of the Year. Weddle even intercepted two passes in the Pro Bowl, one of which resulted in a touchdown after a lateral, while also breaking up a game-high three passes and tying for second with five tackles en route to a 59-41 win by the AFC.
In 2012, Weddle was once again playing at an elite level as he was one of the best safeties in the league. He was voted by teammates the Chargers Most Valuable Player, at the end of the 2012 season. Weddle garnered the teams top honor after leading the squad with 111 tackles. He also tacked on first-team All-Pro honors from CBSSports.com and Pro Football Weekly & the Professional Football Writers of America, and second-team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press.
