Weddle un-retired in January to join his close friend Sean McVay for the Rams playoff showing. The 37-year-old DB has been intimately involved in L.A’s NFC title run, leading them in tackles vs the 49ers and organizing pre-snap coverages throughout the three game stint.
Weddle originally retired in 2019, when he started all 16 games for the Rams. He was a team captain and was the defensive signal-caller.
A six-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro, Weddle has 29 interceptions, including four returned for touchdowns, 8 forced fumbles, 7 fumble recoveries, 9.5 sacks and 98 pass deflections in 13 seasons.
He spent his first nine seasons with the Chargers, who selected him in the second round of the 2007 draft, and three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before joining the Rams in 2019.
