Weddle considered retirement. However, he elected to come back to the field with the Super Bowl runner-ups.

He said last September that he would not play for another team outside of the Ravens. That all changed when he was released by the Ravens.

Weddle did not talk about retirement in his tweet that he wanted to continue to play following the release.

Now, he returns to California, where he played to begin his career. He played for the San Diego Chargers, before signing with the Ravens. He was also born in Fontana, California, as well.

The 34-year-old started 16 games this past season. He had 68 tackles, including 2 tackles for a loss, and four quarterback hits.

He also had 1.0 sacks and three pass deflections.

In his 12-year career, Weddle has made 185 appearances, including 170 starts. He has 1,067 tackles, including 37 tackles for a loss, and 22 quarterback hits.

He has 9.5 sacks, 29 interceptions, including four returned for touchdowns; eight forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown; and 94 pass deflections.
