"I know the struggles they had over the season at safety and everyone hears the news and what not," Weddle said about the Jaguars, "and obviously their GM has stated that he wants to get a safety, so that could be a possibility."
Weddle also said during the interview on SiriusXM Blitz that his agent has heard from more than 10 NFL teams during the lockout.
“My agent has talked to over 10 teams that would be interested if I hit the free-agent market, so it is what it is,” Weddle said. “There are teams that need a safety and I would be excited and happy to help out any team that would want me. We will see what gets done, and when a CBA does get done, I’ll for sure come on with you guys and tell you guys how it is doing.”
Jacksonville undoubtedly needs a safety and I imagine the Jaguars would overpay for Weddle’s services because the position is such an area of need.
In fact, my gut feeling is that the Jaguars already have a deal in place with Weddle. It’s a ‘where there’s smoke, there’s fire’ type of deal, although I must be clear that is just a a logical assumption.Tags: Eric Weddle, Football, Free Agency, free agent, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Jaguars, NFL
