Chargers safety Eric Weddle will attend minicamp

Monday June 15th, 2015

San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle will attend the team's mandatory off-season minicamp this week, his agent tweeted on Monday. 

Weddle skipped the Chargers' organized team activities because he was looking for a contract extension. Slated to be a free agent in 2016, Weddle said in April that he felt "highly disrespected" by the team and was upset the Chargers had yet to discuss a new deal with him. 

On June 1, Weddle's agent told The San Diego Union-Tribune that the team would not discuss a new contract with him this season.

Weddle is due to earn $7.5 million in 2015. He is a three-time Pro Bowler, including in each of the last two seasons.

In 2014, Weddle recorded 114 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception. He has started every regular-season game for San Diego over the last five years and is a former second-round draft pick in 2007.

The Chargers went 9–7 last season and failed to reach the playoffs.
