Rams’ Eric Weddle says he won’t share Ravens’ secrets to Sean McVay
Eric Weddle may no longer be a member of the Baltimore Ravens, but that doesn’t mean his loyalty to his former teammates has ceased.
The Los Angeles Rams safety says that he will not be sharing any intel with Rams head coach Sean McVay ahead of Los Angeles’ Week 12 clash with his former Ravens team this coming season:
“I can’t give all our secrets away,” Weddle told Andy Benoit of Sports Illustrated.
When Benoit said that Weddle doesn’t play for Baltimore anymore, the veteran had this to say:
“Those are my guys, though,” he said. “Could never turn back on my guys over there.”
Weddle then added that he is sure that McVay “knows what he’s doing” and that “he doesn’t need much.”
“What kind of man would I be if I rat out my guys that I played three years with?” he added.
Well, it seems safe to say that Weddle will likely remain a popular figure in the Ravens’ locker room even while he is playing for another team in 2019.
The 34-year-old is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which he played all 16 games and registered 68 tackles and a sack en route to his third straight Pro Bowl appearance.
Weddle, who played his collegiate football at the University of Utah, was originally selected by the San Diego Chargers in the second round (37th pick overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.
He spent the first nine years of his career with the Chargers, making three Pro Bowls and earning a pair of First-Team All-Pro selections before joining the Ravens in 2016.
Baltimore then released him earlier this offseason, clearing the way for him to sign with the Rams.
