Weems rushed once for no gain in Sunday's 12-7 loss to the Cardinals. Weems was originally credited with one yard on a 4th-and-1 fake punt, but a challenge by Cardinals coach Bruce Arians revealed that Weems failed to make the line to gain. The former explosive return man is on his last legs in the NFL and rarely touches the ball in any situation anymore.
Weems caught a five-yard pass on his lone target during Sunday's 12-9 overtime win over the Browns. The catch was Weems' first of the season. Even with his team beat up at the wide receiver position, Weems is unlikely to see more than a handful of offensive snaps while playing primarily on special teams.
Weems was released by the Titans on Saturday. Weems signed with the Titans back in March, but they weren't willing to guarantee a contract to the return specialist. Head coach Mike Mularkey expressed some interest in bringing the 32-year-old back for Week 2 once contracts aren't guaranteed, should Weems still be available.
Wide receiver Eric Weems has agreed to a new two-year contract with the Falcons, according to a report by ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure. Weems made $730,000 last season, when he had 10 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10.
Falcons wide receiver Eric Weems came down with his second touchdown of the season in his team's 30-14 victory over the Saints in Week 16. Weems hauled in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan in the second quarter. It was his only catch of the afternoon. Weems has 10 catches for 102 yards and two scores this season. He'll look to end the regular season on a high note against Carolina.
