“I just want to go out on a high note, go out on top and lead my team,” Weddle said, via ESPN.com. “I want to continue to show what I’m all about. I’m a pro. I’m a professional and strive to be the best and try to have fun.
“It’s all in the past. I can’t control it. They will do what they want. That’s their plan, I have mine and I’ll make the most of it.”
Interestingly enough, Weddle added that a number of players currently on the Chargers’ roster may not be back if the do, in fact, relocate the team to Los Angeles.
“There’s so much uncertainty within certain players and the organization,” Weddle said. “A lot of us may not be here if they do move. Hopefully, they don’t and they figure it out. But I’m not really focusing on that. I’m just trying to get the most out of every day and enjoy it as much as you can, and all of that stuff will take care of itself once the season is over, and move on from there.”
