Although his presence is voluntary in such offseason drills, Weddle is seeking an extension on his current contract, which runs through the 2015 season. During his eight professional campaigns, he's earned two first-team All-Pro selections, three second-team All-Pro picks, and three Pro Bowl bids, all of them in the past five years. In addition, he's proved healthy, missing only four games in his career, while tallying 19 interceptions and averaging 96.5 tackles per season.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

With 598 tackles and just three missed games in his last six seasons, there probably isn't a more reliable IDP in the secondary than Weddle. A high percentage of his tackles are solo stops – usually at least 80 per season – and he adds a nice variety of big-plays in addition to his extremely reliable tackle totals. He has a sack in all but one of his seven seasons, and he has 16 interceptions in the last five years. He's also one of the better touchdown sources among IDP defensive backs, scoring four times in his career. Just as was the case a year ago, the Chargers are rather thin in both the front seven and the secondary, so Weddle will need to do a fair amount of cleaning up for both the run and pass defense in San Diego. Neither of the two starting inside linebackers (Donald Butler and Manti Te'o) have ever surpassed the triple-digit tackle mark, making it a very real possibility that Weddle will lead the team in tackles this year.

2013

Weddle just missed the 100-tackle mark in 2012, finishing with 97 tackles while returning an interception for a touchdown for the fourth year in the last five. Weddle has a long track record as one of the league's top IDP defensive backs, so if you're risk-averse it's worth moving Weddle up a bit in the rankings. He averaged just under 97 tackles per season over the last five years, and with the Chargers looking talent-deficient in the pass rush and secondary, Weddle could have a lot of cleaning up to do again in 2013.

2012

Weddle’s tackle numbers have declined significantly the last two years, as he posted just 184 stops in 32 games after totaling 209 in the previous 29. The good news is Weddle turned up his game in a big way in coverage last year, picking off seven passes – a figure more than three times his previous career high (two). And really, it’s important to have some perspective on his declining tackle numbers – an average of 92 per year is still very good for a defensive back, even if it isn’t close to the 120-tackle pace he had in 2008 and 2009. The bottom line with Weddle is he’s as time-tested as any of the top IDP defensive backs and is a good player in a system that is annually one of the most stat-friendly for players in the secondary. It also helps that Weddle has only missed four games in his five-year career.

2011

Weddle has been a top IDP option his last three years in San Diego, which is why the team rewarded him with a five-year, $40 million contract, with $19 million guaranteed, the most ever given to a safety. Interestingly, the team also signed Bob Sanders and drafted Marcus Gilchrist in the second round with Steve Gregory, Paul Oliver and Darrell Stuckey are already around. Regardless of the depth, Weddle remains a valuable fantasy IDP.

2010

Weddle’s 2009 might have been a pretty close approximation of his breakout 2008 campaign, but a knee injury cost him some playing time. He finished the season with a respectable tally of 82 tackles, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks in 13 games. Barring injury, he should return to the top of the DB leaderboards. A knack for big plays will help; Weddle has scored a touchdown in each of the last two seasons.

2009

Last season was a down one across the board for the Chargers defense – but safety Eric Weddle was a notable exception. In his first year as a starter, Weddle racked up tackle totals that would make a middle linebacker proud – 127, second only to then-Raider Gibril Wilson among defensive backs. We’re looking for another high tackle total in 2009, though Weddle could have fewer opportunities if the Chargers defense improves.

2008

Weddle fared well in a reserve role last season as a rookie, receiving about half of the first-team snaps at free safety during the campaign's second half, and he will open 2008 as the undisputed starter at strong safety. Although he had only one interception during the 2007 regular season, he also picked off Peyton Manning at the Chargers' 4-yard line during their playoff victory at Indianapolis and seems poised to make even more big plays this year.

2007

Weddle is expected to immediately challenge for a starting spot as a rookie. He was the Mountain West Conference's Defensive Player of the Year for both 2005 and 2006, and most feel that he has the instincts and athleticism to excel as a pro.
