Chargers fire equipment manager after 39 years, Eric Weddle tweets disappointment

NFL: Baltimore Ravens-Training Camp Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

After 39 years with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, the franchise decides to part ways with their equipment manager, Bob Wick.

Eric Weddle, a former Charger, who has clearly voiced his opinion about his disdain for the club took to twitter with his disappointment.

Later on, another former Charger, Antonio Cromartie was unhappy, and Weddle posted another response.

Eric Weddle has been on the receiving end of the Chargers ridiculousness personally, back in 2015 he was fined $10,000 for watching his daughter perform at halftime.

This isn’t the worst of it, as Weddle was kicked to the curb by the Chargers organization. From CBS Sports’, John Reed,

"I never did one thing wrong. Never was late to a meeting. Never was fined. Never refused to do a charity function for them. Never didn't sacrifice," Weddle said. "I was a leader, a captain, an All-Pro. And they showed me the door. I'm as loyal as anyone and will do anything for people I respect. But if you don't give that back to me in return, you're dead to me. So I could never go back to that place after what they put me through."

It’s clear as to why Weddle recruits players to the Ravens. After coming from an organization with zero loyalty, he lands with one of the best teams in the league in terms of camaraderie. He loves this organization and wholeheartedly believes in their principles. The love, the teammwork, the ferocity, all of it. The Ravens are a team known for their front office and their locker room brotherhood.
