Weems was released by the Titans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
A 32-year-old special teams player with 39 receptions in 151 regular-season games, Weems may struggle to find work at this stage of his career. He never figured to stay in Tennessee once former head coach Mike Mularkey was fired.
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 re-signed with the Titans on Sunday, a day following his release Kevin Patra of NFL.comreports.
Weems signed with the Titans early in the offseason, but he ultimately was unable to make it through final cuts Saturday. However, a roster spot was made available after the team placed fellow receiver Harry Douglas on injured reserve Sunday. Thus, they opted to bring Weems back into the mix. He figures to play a special teams and depth-receiver role in the coming season.
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.
Weems agreed to terms with the Titans on Saturday.
The Titans added a special teams ace by inking Weems on Saturday. He racked up 391 kick return yards and 273 punt return yards with the Falcons in 2016. He will take on return duties for the Titans this season but is unlikely to make much of an impact on offense.
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.
The Falcons got a bunch of contributions in their 43-37 loss at Green Bay. Running back Jacquizz Rodgers ran three times for 20 yards and caught a 14-yard pass. Wideout Harry Douglas caught two of three targets for 11 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown.
Rookie running back Devonta Freeman caught two passes for 10 yards, and receiver Eric Weems had a 5-yard touchdown reception. Fullback Patrick DiMarco had a 9-yard grab.
They'll all play the Steelers in Week 15.
The Falcons backup pass catchers did little Week 13 against the Cardinals.
Levine Toilolo managed to haul in four balls, gaining 15 yards. He was the target of a 1 yard score from Matt Ryan in the first quarter. Devin Hester had just one catch, gaining 10 yards. He also gained 4 yards on a rushing attempt. Eric Weems pulled in two balls, but gained just 9 yards.
They'll look for more Week 14 against the Packers.
The Falcons backups made an impact Thursday against the Buccaneers.
With the team up by a ton, Atlanta started using their subs in the third quarter. Jacquizz Rodgers received five carries for 6 yards. Rodgers also caught a pass for 3 yards.
Eric Weems seemed to be the biggest beneficiary, hauling in four passes for 69 yards. Fullback Patrick DiMarco gained 35 yards on three catches. Levine Toilolo also contributed, catching two passes for 25 yards. Courtney Roby picked up 11 yards on one reception.
They'll take on the Vikings Week 4.
The Falcons have signed Eric Weems and waived fellow wide receiver Jabin Sambrano.
Weems was released by Chicago on Saturday. He played for five years with Atlanta and has 27 career receptions.
Following a less than spectacular start to the preseason, Eric Weems was released by the Bears on Saturday. Weems didn't have a catch but did fumble a kick return against the Jaguars earlier this week.
Bears wide receiver Eric Weems refused to take a paycut and is expected to be released in the coming days, according to the Chicago Tribune on Thursday.
Weems was due to earn $1 million in base salary this season with a $100,000 workout bonus. He caught just one pass for eight yards last season.
The Bears got a few minor offensive contributions in their blowout loss at Philadelphia. Among them, receiver Earl Bennett caught two of three targets for 12 yards and hauled in a 2-point conversion.
Receiver Eric Weems caught one of two targets for 8 yards. They'll face the Packers in Week 17.
Bears kick returner Eric Weems has been doing well as a receiver in practice, says the Chicago Tribune. "He's consistent, much better than advertised," receivers coach Darryl Drake said. "Silently does it. Doesnt get noticed as much. Hes proven he can be a good receiver as well as a special-teams player."
