Free agent S Eric Weddle is returning to the Chargers after all.

Despite trumped-up interest from a number of teams (among them, the Jaguars, Broncos and Colts) who wanted to sign the DB coming off a strong season (96 tackles, two interceptions), the San Diego Union Tribune reports he’s agreed to terms to return to San Diego.

Take this for what it’s worth, but his agent David Canter proclaimed it the richest deal ever for a safety. That would be, according to the Union-Trib, that's a five-year, $40 million deal with $19 million of it guaranteed.

Report: Weddle to return to Chargers

The money would be nuts but I love the thought of San Diego holding on to their own. Still upset by the Takeo Spikes signing and hope Butler replaces him sooner rather than later.
