In somewhat surprising news, the Baltimore Ravens released All-Pro safety, Eric Weddle on Tuesday. He now joins what is becoming quite the deep free agent pool of safeties.

Though, it would appear that Weddle’s time as a free agent won’t last long. The 34-year-old safety said nearly half the teams in the NFL have already reached out to him.

Even as one of the older players at his position, Weddle still contributes like a rock star. Since joining the Ravens in 2016, Weddle has recorded 220 combined tackles, 10 interceptions on top of 24 defended passes, three sacks and one touchdown.

It is no wonder that multiple NFL teams are showing interest. With that said, all of the attention Weddle is garnering should drive up his asking price.

It will not be long before Weddle — who has no plans of retiring just yet — chooses another team to call home.
