The Rams also announced the release of linebacker Mark Barron. Weddle, who spent his last three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, had considered retirement but the Rams offer was enough to bring him to Los Angeles.

Drafted by the Chargers in the 2007 draft, Weddle spent nine years in San Diego where he was two-time All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler. The 34-year is set to be the replacement for safety Lamarcus Joyner, who is expected to become a free agent next week.

Weddle had previously talked about potentially hanging up his cleats if the Ravens were to let him go.

The Venezuelan looked certain to score into an open goal when Pickford committed the foul and was lucky to start on the pitch. One of Pep Guardiola's team often finds themselves in the team, but the same can't be said for Rafael Benitez's men.

Turns out, this scenario that seemed like a long shot is becoming a reality for the Rams and Weddle after the two sides reached an agreement on Friday in what can be best described as a fair deal. The seven-year pro was the seventh overall pick by Tampa Bay in 2012, and he joined the Rams in a trade during the 2014 season. Weddle has recorded 1,070 combined tackles, 9.5 sacks, 95 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, four touchdowns, and eight forced fumbles through his nine National Football League seasons.

Weddle grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, one of Los Angeles' outer suburbs, before starring at Utah and joining the Chargers as a second-round pick. He had 68 tackles, including 2 tackles for a loss, and four quarterback hits.
