“I’ve never worked as hard as I did this past year to try and get better from last season and help this team and lead even more so,“ Weddle said in a story on baltimorebeatdown.com. “I’m ecstatic because I’ve done so much over the last year to get back to this point, to help my team win, and to hopefully get back to the playoffs.”
Weddle thanked the fans on Twitter.
