    Good morning.

    Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego talks with San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle about his future with the organization. Over the weekend Weddle played in the Pro Bowl for the second time in three seasons. However, Weddle would rather be playing in the game being held at University of Phoenix Stadium this Sunday, the Super Bowl.

    According to Acee’s report, Weddle wants the team to show it is committed to reaching that goal.

    "Obviously, I play to win a Super Bowl," Weddle said. "I play for my teammates and the organization. I just hope we don’t waste the guys we have on this team and they give us a shot to win the Super Bowl."

    Weddle, 30, is to make $7.5 million in the final year of a five-year deal in 2015. He expects a contract restructure before the upcoming season, Acee reports.

    "If it’s not, I probably won’t be here after next season," he said. "Everyone knows I love the organization. But with my cap number, and the way I’m playing, if they don’t (restructure), it’s a sign they’re going in a different direction."

    Ricky Henne of Chargers.com reports that Weddle and teammate Darrell Stuckey were victorious in this year’s Pro Bowl, as Team Irvin defeated Team Carter 32-28.

    According to a study performed by Pro Football Focus, the Chargers are eight players away from being Super Bowl contenders.

    Jay Paris of The Mighty 1090 takes a walk down memory lane, looking back at San Diego’s only appearance in the Super Bowl on the 20th anniversary of the title game for the 1994 season.

    ESPN’s James Walker writes that he expects Buffalo Bills soon-to-be free agent running back C.J. Spiller to secure a contract that pays him an average of between $2.5 million and $4 million per season in free agency. Ryan Mathews is from the same draft class and has similar production to Spiller, so he could be looking at the same type of compensation once the Fresno State product hits free agency.

    Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated has an interesting read on the beginnings of the NFL advanced stats website Pro Football Focus.

    Only eight players huh? I'm sure we can get that all in this year's draft. Cute graphic. ;)
