Rams sign free agent Eric Weddle

Three things to know about safety Eric Weddle

Eric Weddle signing with division-rival Los Angeles Rams

After the Baltimore Ravens pulled off a surprise move earlier this week by releasing veteran safety Eric Weddle, the Los Angeles Rams seemed like a long shot for a landing spot, mainly because of all the interest he would be drawing from other teams. The six-time Pro Bowl selection was released Tuesday after starting all 16 games previous year for the Ravens, who elected to get younger. He is almost certain to take the starting job held by Lamarcus Joyner, who is expected to leave as a free agent.

Weddle is 34-years-old as he now enters free agency. The team is considered among the favorites to heavily pursue and possibly acquire former Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, who hopes to become the highest-paid player at his position.

The Rams are recently received three; however, after last trades last season the Rams will be left with one pick which is set at 99 overall in the third round. He'll join a secondary with fellow multi-time Pro Bowlers Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
