Veteran safety Eric Weddle has agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens on a four-year deal, the team announced Monday. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported it's a $26 million contract, via a source involved in the deal. The new pact calls for $13 million in guarantees, per Rapoport, including $9 million in the first year.
The situation reached a boiling point in late December. Weddle was "stunned" and "furious" after the Bolts fined him for "conduct detrimental to the team" when he stayed on the field to watch his daughter dance at halftime of the season finale.
On the field, Weddle dropped below Pro Bowl level for the first time in three years while playing through a midseason groin injury. He remained excellent in coverage, though, covering centerfield for a San Diego secondary that exceeded expectations.
