Bears agreed to terms with WR/KR Eric Weems, formerly of the Falcons, on a three-year contract.
At first glance, it's an odd fit with Devin Hester locked in on punt returns. Weems has been an All-Pro special teamer in the past, but he has just 24 receptions in 54 career games. The move suggests the Bears can't count on Johnny Knox for kickoff returns in 2012. Either that, or new GM Phil Emery will listen to offers for Hester.
