Weber was not selected in the draft and became a free agent.

He signed with Seattle Sounders FC for the 2012 season. At season's end, Seattle declined his 2013 contract option and Weber entered the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Draft. Weber was not selected in the draft and became a free agent. He joined Phoenix FC in USL Pro for the 2013 season and later re-joined the Sounders on a loan; he returned to Phoenix following the loan (having made three starts in Seattle).
