According to Zenitz, Weaver has now signed with an agent which would make him ineligible to play again for Pitt.
Following a season ending knee injury last season, Weaver has completely recovered from the injury and has proven to NFL teams that he’s worthy of a high pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has not been able to confirm this report with Weaver.
At the start of the season, defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman opted out Pitt’s 2020 season and so did safety Paris Ford midway through the season.
