“If [Eric DeCosta] wants me back, I’m here. If not, then it’s all good. I understand it, and I’ll just ride off into the sunset,” Weddle told reporters. “If they want to go in a different direction, I’m not going to play for another team. That’s not where I’m at in my career,” Weddle said. “So it’s either play my last year here and that’ll be it and enjoy it, or this has been it.”READ MORE: Aromatherapy Spray Linked To US Deaths Faces Recall
