Cardinals LB Sean Weatherspoon looks to rebound from injury


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was signed by the Cardinals in free agency this offseason. He has high hopes that he'll rebound after rupturing his achilles tendon in 2014 while with the Falcons, according to the team's official website.

“Once it happened, I figured I’d come back from this,” Weatherspoon said. “That’s what I told myself when I was sitting there down and out looking at everything that was happening. I was down, but I was ultimately thinking about the comeback.”

In addition to missing all of the 2014 season, the 27-year-old missed all but seven games in 2013. The linebacker is optimistic that the time off could benefit him on the field.

“Mike Peterson played linebacker in the league for a long time, and he was a guy who took me under his wing in my rookie year in the league,” Weatherspoon said. “He would come out and he would make some plays, and I’d be like, ‘Man, how you still do that after so much time off and not even being the starter anymore, but you’re still able to just go out there and make it happen?’ He said, ‘It’s just like riding a bike.’

“I just have to get back to practicing a little bit more and being on that steady routine, but I definitely think it saved my legs being off of them for the past two years. I’m just looking forward to going out there and trying to reestablish myself as being the player that I am.”

In four years with the Falcons, Weatherspoon recorded 290 total tackles, eight sacks, 15 passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

"With him, it's that toughness and the speed that he can play with so, yes, definitely someone that we're talking to," Quinn said via ESPN.com. "I know he's got that kind of attitude. And you know me, just from watching our style of defense, it's fast and physical. And that's what Sean is. So, we're certainly hoping that he can be a big part of it moving forward."

Sean Weatherspoon pumped about Falcons' additions


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(4/23/2014) Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon recorded 211 tackles and seven sacks in 2011-12 before getting 38 stops and no sacks in an injury-plagued 2013 season. Weatherspoon, 26, told ESPN.com that the team's offseason moves, especially the signing of nose tackle Paul Soliai, will make his job a lot easier.

"Bringing in somebody of that caliber, I've seen him over the years and the way he's been playing,'' Weatherspoon said of Soliai. "He's a big guy and real big for run-stopping. He'll whip up on the center, and that's the apex of the offense. So I think that's something that can be great.

"We signed all our defensive tackles back from last year [Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters, Peria Jerry]. Bringing those three guys back along with [Soliai] and bringing a big guy on the outside in [defensive end] Tyson Jackson ... they made some moves, man. It's definitely saying that we're active and we want to turn things around."
