Chargers FS Eric Weddle: 'I'm not coming in anytime soon'
Weddle, who is in the final year of his contract, is seeking a new one. General manager Tom Telesco has promised one will be discussed upon the completion of the draft, but Weddle will wait until then. He did, however, claim he will be working out on the side.
"I'm not coming in anytime soon," Weddle told radio station The Mighty 1090. "They know where we're at and they obviously know their stance, so we'll see what happens from there."
Weddle contributed to 114 tackles last season and has averaged 103 over his last seven years. But his interception total has dropped every season since peaking at seven in 2011.
Redskins rookie WR Jamison Crowder could push Andre Roberts
General manager Scot McCloughan praised the diminutive Duke product - and not just for his talents as a kick returner.
"For an undersized guy, he's got a chip on his shoulder," McCloughan said. "He's a really good punt returner. He's a receiver first, punt returner second. And he's going to come in there, you put him in the slot, he's going to be tough to cover. He's a football player."
Roberts performed well in the slot early last year, but struggled down the stretch and finished with just 36 receptions for 453 yards and two scores. He also made little impact as a returner.
Crowder caught 85 passess for 1,044 yards and six touchdowns in 2014 with the Blue Devils.
Bills RB LeSean McCoy: Chip Kelly dumped top black players
Bills star running back
"He wants the full control," McCoy told ESPN. "You see how fast he got rid of all the good players. Especially all the good black players. He got rid of them the fastest. That's the truth. There's a reason. ... It's hard to explain with him. But there's a reason he got rid of all the players - the good ones - like that.
"... People have heard it. ... Other players have talked about it. But that's one of the things where you don't even care no more. I'm on a new team, ready to play. So it's nothing to do with Chip. I have no hatred, nothing to say negative about him. When he got [to Philadelphia], I didn't know what to expect. When he let [Pro Bowl wide receiver] DeSean [Jackson] go last year, I was like: 'C'mon, DeSean Jackson?' So it is what it is."
McCoy produced his fourth 1,000-yard season in 2014, but his YPC average fell from 5.1 in 2013 to 4.2.
