Eric Weddle’s run with the San Diego Chargers may be nearing the end.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that San Diego Chargers star safety Eric Weddle was fined $10,000 by the Chargers for staying on the field to watch his daughter perform a dance routine during the halftime show against the Miami Dolphins. Mike McCoy, the Chargers coach, confirmed the fine and explained that it was a team policy.

Eric Weddle’s agent, David Cantor, was upset with the penalty and took to twitter to call out the Chargers.

The team placed Weddle on injured reserve on Monday against the player’s wishes and according to Cantor the Chargers are not going to let Eric Weddle travel with the team in Week 17. The team’s reason for not bringing him is… they couldn’t fit him on the plane.

During the last home game of the season for the Chargers, the team allowed for a standing ovation from fans for Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd, but Weddle’s impending departure was ignored even though Weddle treated that home game like it was his last and stayed around to sign autographs.

Weddle will be a free agent after the 2015 season.
