The 34-year-old Weddle started all 16 games in each of his three seasons with Baltimore. Weddle wrote on Twitter.

After first saying he would retire if the Ravens did not bring him back, Weddle was non-committal several weeks later about whether he would retire or play elsewhere if he moved on. I can't stop working out or watching film bc this guy showed me how to be a pro. He's really my brother & our bond will never break. "He'll have a yellow jacket". It's likely Baltimore adds a safety through free agency or the draft, too. It's not so much getting cut. Ravens defensive end Chris Wormley commented on the news saying "One of the greatest leaders I've even been around!"

It was a call from Ravens executive Eric DeCosta three years earlier that set things in motion for safety Eric Weddle to come east and resume his National Football League career after his bitter release by the San Diego Chargers.

Weddle told Jamison Hensley of ESPN on Wednesday that he met with Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta after the season and his release wasn't a surprise.

A leader in the locker room and on the field, Weddle made 68 tackles last season but did not have an interception. Weddle believes he will remain close with DeCosta after his departure. So, Juszczyk knows Weddle can do.

Weddle's release adds to a loaded free-agent class for safeties. While the free-agent safety pool is deep - boasting names like Earl Thomas, Landon Collins, Tyrann Mathieu, Kenny Vaccaro, Lamarcus Joyner and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix - Weddle would be a welcome veteran presence to a contender.
