Chargers shopping Eric Weddle

The trade deadline is a day away, and another two-win team seems to be realizing that it’s time to sell! sell!

Per a league source, the Chargers are shopping veteran safety Eric Weddle.

Weddle, a three-time Pro Bowler and a two-time first-team All Pro, is in the last year of his contract, at a base salary of $7.5 million.

The veteran skipped the non-mandatory portion of the offseason, prompting coach Mike McCoy eventually to tell the team to move on without him.

The team could indeed be moving on without him now, swapping the last eight games of a lost season for value over and above whatever they’d get as a compensatory pick if he signs with a new team as a free agent in March.
