Weddle: "I love being in San Diego, but it’s not the reason I’ll stay"

I’m looking forward to the future. I think everything will work out. If I’m here, I’m here. If not, then I’m not. I love being in San Diego, but it’s not the reason I’ll stay. My wife and kids loving San Diego won’t keep us here. If it’s not where it’s at, I can leave in a heartbeat. – Eric Weddle

AJ Smith and the San Diego Chargers need to make sure to pay Eric Weddle this off-season. He is a free agent and is one of the best options at safety available for other teams to sign. We already need to fill the safety position opposite of Weddle. If he decides to take his game elsewhere, we will have a huge hole in the secondary.

There are times where I get frustrated with Weddle, but he seems to be placing himself in good positions to make game changing plays. Often times he has dropped interceptions that hit him right in the hands, but sooner or later he will catch those balls (i hope).

Weddle should be one of the priorities to bring back to the defense.

    Really! he needs to go the way Shonn Green drove his face in the dirt in the playoff plus he sucks both at coverage & open field tackling!

    No kidding!! You can add Darren McFadden to the list of running backs that rolled over Weddle like a ROAD GRADER!He is undersized and slow,not to mention his BUTTER FINGERS and lack of FEROCITY. How long is the ERIC WEDDLE “BIG HIT” tape? 10 seconds? Before we pay this guy AJ needs to review 2009 Home game versus the Broncos when Tony Scheffler abused Weddle like he was a Pop Warner kid. If anybody pay Steve Gregory.

    weddle has had his share of lowlights and his size allows people to run him over, but you guys think that steve gregory is a better option than weddle?

    weddle still goes out and could be a good role player on the defense. He is not an impact player and we should not pay him as one, but he still is a solid player.

    we won’t be able to have all-pros and pro bowlers at every position. we need to make sure to bring the solid option back and not leave holes in our defense.
