Report: Jags could pursue Eric Weddle
By Bill Williamson
Pro Football Weekly is reporting that Jacksonville could be a free-agent suitor for San Diego safety Eric Weddle.
I think we are a long way from seeing that happening. First, we won’t know if Weddle will be a free agent until the lockout is resolved. Also, the Chargers like Weddle and would like to pair him with Bob Sanders. It’s premature to think Weddle is definitely out the door in San Diego.

Oakland coach Hue Jackson told NFL.com he was pleased to hear about the Raiders’ player-led workout in Georgia last week. More than 30 players attended the workout, which was paid for and organized by defensive lineman Richard Seymour.
"It tells me that the message I've been sending since the day I became head coach, that players are buying in -- that there is an expectation here again in Oakland," Jackson said. "We got a taste of it a year ago at 8-8. They know it's all in working. There's no magic to this at all. This thing is called hard work."
