Eric Weddle wasn't a free agent for long. The Niners will see him twice a year, though.

He adds even more experience to the Rams' secondary alongside 33-year-old cornerback Aqib Talib and two-time Pro Bowl selection Marcus Peters.

The former Ravens safety has already received 11 offers just a few days after his release from Baltimore earlier this week, according to NFL Network, which cited unidentified sources. The 49ers are expected to address the safety position this offseason.

International Women's Day: Call for 'all genders to be included'
In 1911, Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland celebrated International Women's Day on the 19th of March. This day celebrates the social, economic, political and cultural achievements of women around the globe.

Weddle reportedly considered retirement and has previously said the the Ravens would be the last team he played for. Weddle has recorded 1,070 combined tackles, 9.5 sacks, 95 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, four touchdowns, and eight forced fumbles through his nine National Football League seasons.

Weddle grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, one of Los Angeles' outer suburbs, before starring at Utah and joining the Chargers as a second-round pick. He registered 68 combined tackles, a sack, and three passes defensed through 16 starts with the Ravens in 2018. In Weddle they are getting an experienced, tough, productive safety (with 29 career interceptions, though zero last season in Baltimore) who should be a flawless fit with Rams' defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. He spent his previous nine National Football League seasons with the Chargers.
