Weems signs with Bears
Aaron Wilson of Scout.com reports that Falcons wide receiver Eric Weems has signed a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears. Weems has served primarily as the team’s return specialist over the past three seasons, becoming one of the league’s more productive dual threats on kickoffs and punts. He earned a bid to the Pro Bowl in 2010 due to his prowess on special teams.
Weems first joined the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2007, was cut and then made the practice squad in 2008. In four years with the team, Weems started 6 of 55 games catching 24 passes for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns. He had 11 catches for 90 yards this past season. He has also recorded 41 stops on special teams in that span.
