You know what they say about the Internet: If you put it in writing, it lives forever.
Not even a week after DeMarcus Cousins showed his patience in waiting five years to prove a sports pundit wrong, Chargers safety Eric Weddle is ready to show off his own elephant-grade memory. Warren Sapp's arrest on charges of soliciting a prostitute and assault early Monday reminded Weddle of just four years earlier, when Sapp slammed the Chargers for giving the safety a new contract.
At the time, Sapp described Weddle as a "Safety You Couldn't Pick Out Of A Line-Up."
Not the greatest choice of words, it turns out.

For what it's worth, Weddle has done plenty to earn that five-year, $40 million contract. Since signing, he's been named to the Pro Bowl three times. Twice, the Chargers named him their team defensive player of the year. He's also made first- or second-team All-Pro every year since 2010. (He should also earn the Twitter equivalent of All-Pro for the #whoisinthelineupnow hashtag.)
Another bonus: He hasn't been arrested on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.
That's checkmate, Sapp.
