Jed Weaver parlayed a walk-on opportunity at the University of Oregon into a six-year NFL career that included three seasons in Miami and a Super Bowl Championship with the New England Patriots in 2004.
In the tank, Jed discusses growing up in Redmond, Oregon where he played youth football as well as baseball with his cousins, future Major League Baseball stars, Jered and Jeff Weaver (2:05). He fondly recalls the 1969 Cadillac that became his early off-field trademark in Miami (10:57), and a myriad of memories from the Dolphins’ 2000 season (12:56) including a wild finish on Christmas Eve in Foxboro (15:28) and his timely TD reception in a Wild Card playoff contest against the Peyton Manning-led Colts (18:45). “The Dream” also fondly reflects upon unique relationships with the likes of Larry Izzo (23:54), Ricky Williams (29:35), and Todd Wade (34:00), and explains why giving his time to countless charitable endeavors is so important to him (39:53).
