Titans Reach Deal with Returner Eric Weems

Posted Mar 11, 2017

Titans reach deal with former Atlanta Falcons kick returner Eric Weems.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Eric Weems has made a career out of returning punts and kicks, earning Pro Bowl honors and praise from his coaches along the way.
 
Now, the former Falcons return man is headed to Tennessee.
 
The Titans and Weems have agreed to a deal, pending a physical. With the Titans, Weems will be reunited with Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie, his former position coach in Atlanta, and Titans head coach Mike Mularkey, his former offensive coordinator.
 
Weems will handle return duties for the Titans.
 
“Eric is a tough, physical, veteran player, who has dual return value and has been an effective player on kick coverage units,” said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. “He has a history with Mike and Terry in Atlanta and they speak highly of him and what he brings to a team.”
 
A Pro Bowler in 2010, Weems ranked sixth in the NFL in punt returns last season with an 11.4 average. He had a 73-yard punt return in Week 2, and also averaged 23.0 yards on 17 kickoff returns last season, with a long of 42.
 
In 10 NFL seasons, Weems has caught 38 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns. Weems entered the NFL in 2007 as an undrafted free agent out of Bethune-Cookman. He’s played eight of his 10 seasons with the Falcons (he played with the Bears in 2012-13).
 
Weems became the third key special teams performer to reach a deal with the Titans since the start of free agency, joining linebacker Daren Bates and another former Oakland Raider, safety Brynden Trawick.
