Eric Weddle calls Rams CBs 'best I've ever played with'


By Grant Gordon

Through a thus-far 12-year career that boasts a cavalcade of individual accolades and memorable moments, free safety Eric Weddle has lined up alongside a number of stellar teammates.

Entering his lucky 13th season, Weddle believes he'll be playing next to the best of the best in not only the defensive backfield but all of the NFL.

"We have a chance to be special on defense with the pieces that we have," Weddle said Friday on Total Access from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Nevada. "Obviously, starting with A.D. Obviously one of the best players in the NFL at all positions and now being able to scheme up and do things that help him to give him an advantage even more so, to let him wreck havoc. He's an amazing talent, an amazing person, the way he works everyday. There's a reason he's the best player in the league."

While Donald disrupts on the D-line, Weddle will join forces with the cornerback duo of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. Weddle likewise rewarded them with the highest of compliments.

"Those guys are super, super smart," Weddle said of the cornerbacks. "The instincts are off the charts. Play-making ability. ... Those two are the best I've ever played with in my career of guys that play with vision, play the ball, understand routes, trust a safety that is going to alert them and put them in a position to make plays knowing that I have their backs. I'm extremely excited to get on the field with them, give 'em those live reps, live-game atmosphere and take this secondary to the next level."

Eric Weddle: Rams 'have a chance to be special' on defense

By:Cameron DaSilva

There are very few questions about the Los Angeles Rams offense heading into this season after two straight years of finishing in the top two of points scored. The defense, however, has lagged behind. It’s still been a respectable unit, but 19th in yards allowed the last two seasons fell way below expectations.

There’s once again reason for optimism with L.A.’s defense in 2019, given the additions of Eric Weddle and Clay Matthews, and the return of key players across all three levels. Aaron Donald said this offseason that the defense can be special, which is a sentiment Weddle agrees with.

Weddle shared his optimism on NFL Network recently, saying the defense has high hopes.

“Just continue to strive to be the best and push the guys and earn my role and spot on this team, and go out there and lead this defense. We have a chance to be special on defense with the pieces that we have,” he said. “There’s a lot to be excited about and I’m just going to fit right in, do my job and win a bunch of ball games.”

Weddle centered his case around Donald, who he’s excited to play alongside.

”Obviously starting with AD, one of the best players in the NFL at all positions and now being able to scheme up and do things to help him to give him an advantage even more so to let him wreak havoc,” Weddle added. “He’s an amazing talent, he’s an amazing person the way he works every day. There’s a reason he’s the best player in the league.”

Eric Weddle brings stability and continuity to Rams secondary


While he’s still one of the top safeties in the league, Eric Weddle has become the veteran face in the Los Angeles Rams secondary.

A secondary in dire need of improvement, the Rams signed Weddle, 34, after he was released by the Baltimore Ravens in early March. Prior to his stint with the Ravens, he spent nine seasons with the Chargers.
