Weddle calls Rams CBs best he's played with – NFL.com

Through a thus-far 12-year career that boasts a cavalcade of individual accolades and memorable moments, free safety Eric Weddle has lined up alongside a number of stellar teammates.

Entering his lucky 13th season, Weddle believes he’ll be playing next to the best of the best in not only the defensive backfield but all of the NFL.

“We have a chance to be special on defense with the pieces that we have,” Weddle said Friday on Total Access from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Nevada. “Obviously, starting with A.D. Obviously one of the best players in the NFL at all positions and now being able to scheme up and do things that help him to give him an advantage even more so, to let him wreck havoc. He’s an amazing talent, an amazing person, the way he works everyday. There’s a reason he’s the best player in the league.”

While Donald disrupts on the D-line, Weddle will join forces with the cornerback duo of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. Weddle likewise rewarded them with the highest of compliments.

“Those guys are super, super smart,” Weddle said of the cornerbacks. “The instincts are off the charts. Play-making ability. … Those two are the best I’ve ever played with in my career of guys that play with vision, play the ball, understand routes, trust a safety that is going to alert them and put them in a position to make plays knowing that I have their backs. I’m extremely excited to get on the field with them, give ’em those live reps, live-game atmosphere and take this secondary to the next level.”

Over his seasons with the Chargers and Ravens, Weddle has earned six Pro Bowl trips, including three in a row. Ahead of their time together with the Rams, he’s even been a Pro Bowl teammate of Talib. All together, the trio of Peters, Talib and Weddle boasts 13 Pro Bowl bids and four All-Pro selections.

Calling Donald the best player in the NFL isn’t all that much of a stretch in the summer of 2019 and Weddle calling Peters and Talib the best he’s played with, well only he knows that in reality — even though he’s still yet to play an actual game with them.

Nonetheless, the reigning NFC champions certainly boast a defensive backfield — which also features the underrated John Johnson at strong safety and Nickell Robey-Coleman, who was perhaps the most well-known DB in the world for a couple weeks, also at corner — that has an impressive resume.

Past success and potential combined, there’s certainly reason for excitement in Los Angeles.

“There’s a lot to be excited about,” Weddle said. “I’m just going to fit right in, do my job and win a bunch of ballgames.”
