Eric Weddle Open To Playing For Another Team If Ravens Move On

Earlier this month, Ravens safety Eric Weddle said he would call it a career if the Ravens decided to move on from him.

“If they want to go in a different direction, I’m not going to go play for another team,” Weddle said on Jan. 7. “It’s not where I’m at in my career. It’s either play my last year here [in Baltimore] and that will be it and enjoy it, or this has been it. It’s pretty simple. I’m a simple kind of guy.”

Speaking on Wednesday, Weddle seemed to change his tune a bit.

“I’m not sure if things are going to get worked out with Baltimore. I want to finish out my contract, but obviously, decisions have to be made for the future of the team. They’ve got to do what’s best for them, and I respect that. We’ll see if there’s something to be worked out. If not, then I’ve had an unbelievable experience here and loved every second. So if it does happen, we both move on and then…we’ll see if I’ll play somewhere else or hang ’em up.”

Weddle, 34, said he’s had “great conversations” with new GM Eric DeCosta but no indication has been made that he’ll be back.

Weddle is due to make $6.5M in base salary in 2019. Baltimore would save $7.5M in cap space by cutting him.

He was voted to the Pro Bowl once again this season and has made it in all three seasons with Baltimore.
