According to Garafolo, an AFC North team made Weddle an offer before the season and an AFC South team made him a recent offer. Weddle reportedly turned both down, but Garafolo hears he would be open to potentially returning if it were the right situation.

Garafolo mentions that Weddle is a Southern California guy and loved his time with the Ravens. If he is to return, Garafolo says it would have to be for a competitive team.

Weddle opted to retire from the NFL back in February following offseason meniscus surgery.

Weddle, 35, is a former second-round pick of the Chargers back in 2007. He played nine seasons for the Chargers before signing a four-year, $26 million contract that included $13 million guaranteed with the Ravens for the 2016 season.

Weddle was entering the final year of his contract when the Ravens released him. He later signed on with the Rams before announcing his retirement. 

For his career, Weddle played 13 seasons for the Chargers, Ravens and Rams, finishing with 1,154 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 29 interceptions, eight forced fumbles, five recoveries, five defensive touchdowns and 100 pass defenses. He also made six Pro Bowls and was twice named first-team All-Pro.
