The Eric Weddle era in Baltimore has come to an end.

The team announced that they have released veteran safety Eric Weddle after an underwhelming 2018 campaign.

The 34-year old, who has been selected to six Pro Bowls (2011, 2013, 2014, 2016–2018) over a span of 12 NFL seasons, had one-year, $6.5 million remaining on the four-year, $26 million contract he signed with the club back in March 2016 after spending his first nine seasons of his professional career with the Los Angeles Chargers (then San Diego Chargers).

Weddle posted 68 combined tackles, three passes defended and one sack in 16 games in 2018.

He also says he doesn’t plan on retiring, and hopes to secure a contract in time for the 2019 season.
