Rams S Eric Weddle came out of retirement after not playing in two years to help the team after injuries decimated their safety group, and it’s a testament to his mental acuity that he was able to pick up on the playbook so quickly and play such a large role. Weddle finally earned a Super Bowl ring and he had parting words for his old GM for the Chargers, Tom Telesco, who didn’t think he was worth re-signing back in 2015. 

“I want to thank the Chargers for drafting me and I also want to thank old Tom Telesco for the way things ended there, and showing me the light, and giving me that motivation and that fire,” Weddle said after the game, via USA Today’s Gavino Borquez. “The way things ended there, I appreciated that and I always said that Eric Weddle will get the last laugh, and I’m a world champion right now.”
