WOW! Good for you Mr. Weddle, get it while you can and retire comfortable for the rest of your life.

Las Vegas, NV

Congrats to Weddle! That is huge money, and I do believe it is more than some schools who sign deals with ESPN and KBYU.

Can't think of anyone in the NFL who deserves it more. Great human being. Great athlete.

Great player and person. Classy guy all the way around.

Great to see good being richly rewarded. Don't know the young man but from all I read and heard he's a genuine class act and a very talented athlete. Love positive stories like this. It reflects well on the type of program the Utes have and it's success. Congrats to Mr. Weddle! Good luck to your Utes!

And go Cougs!

Eric is one of my all time favorite Utes. Great guy, great player, very deserving. Nice story to start the day!!!

Loved watching him play at the U and for the last few years in SD. Like his style and his honest play.

@bigutefan, you are looking like a little brother. Stay on task and comment on the article.

This is a story about Eric Weddle. Are you really so obsessed that you have to bring BYU into it?

Chandler, AZ

I don't know much about Weddle as a person, but I remember him being a force of nature in those BYU-Utah games. Good to see he's still excelling.

Great to see good things happen to good people. Everything I know about Eric Weddle tells me he deserves this and will earn every penny. He is also a great person off the field and I'm sure will do some good with the money. Maybe even some good back at his alma mater.

Cedar City, UT

If he "could catch better", wouldn't he be on offense instead of defense?

Might be a good fantasy football pick in leagues that use defensive players. He on my watch list.

I love to hear about University of Utah players who are able to buy their own gas stations.

In other news, Max Hall just sold his 40th cell phone contract!

Congratulations to both Eric and Max on their monumental accomplishments.

Murray, UT

My favorite memory of Eric Weddle, walking off the RES football field after the Utah-BYU game with John Beck. Both warriors had their helmets off and were chatting in a friendly manner about the game. They walked together for about half the length of the field then shook hands and departed. They had fought the battle on opposing teams but had great respect for each other. I wish it could always be that way.

Beverly Hills, CA

Great to see a hard working athlete, ute have Success.
