Notes:
2012: Re-signed with NYG 1-year, $2.665 million.

Compared to previous seasons, 2005 was an off year for Weatherford as he averaged only 42.6 yards per punt and had only 16 of his 67 attempts land inside the 20-yard line...Was named First-Team All-Big Ten Conference as a junior in 2004 and was a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award after he established a new school record with a punting average of 45.4 yards per attempt...Averaged 44.5 yards per punt in 2003, giving him the top two marks in school history for the Illini...Has had four years of experience with Illinois and has great size for the position, not to mention having played in less than favorable conditions over the years...Weatherford does not have great leg strength and has a tendency to lack urgency in some situations, which at the pro level will lead to more blocks.
