Eric Weddle, a two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl safety for the San Diego Chargers from 2007-2015, and a three-time Pro Bowl safety for the Baltimore Ravens from 2016-2018, has announced his retirement from the NFL. Weddle spent his final year with the LA Rams, recording 108 tackles at age 34.

Weddle made his announcement on Twitter, along with his career accomplishments.

The Chargers selected Weddle out of Utah in the second round, 37th overall, of the 2007 NFL Draft. Weddle and center Ryan Kalil were the only players in that round to make more than one career Pro Bowl, with Weddle appearing six times. He was the fifth safety off the board after LaRon Landry, Michael Griffin, Reggie Nelson, and Brandon Meriweather, but he turned in the best career.

He led the Chargers in total adjusted value (AV) in 2012 and he was an All-Pro in 2011 and 2014. He was second team All-Pro in 2010 and 2012, and a Pro Football Focus first team All-Pro in 2016.
