Weems caught a five-yard pass on his lone target during Sunday's 12-9 overtime win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

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.

A day after being let go, Weems re-signed with the Titans on Sunday Kevin Patra of NFL.comreports.

EDGE Analysis

Weems signed with the Titans early in the offseason, but 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 the injured reserve Sunday. Thus, they opted to bring Weems back into the mix. He figures to play a special teams and depth receiver role heading into the season.

Weems was released by the Titans on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Weems has agreed to a two-year contract to remain with the Falcons, ESPN reports.

Weems was signed by the Falcons ahead of last season, but Atlanta's deep receiving corp limited him to just 10 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Nonetheless, Weems will be brought back by the Falcons' new coaching regime, and should still be able to contribute on special teams moving forward.

Weems caught one ball for three yards on Sunday, but it went for a touchdown against the Saints.

Slotted behind Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester on the depth chart means Weems' opportunities are few and far between. He has 10 catches for 102 yards on the season, most of it coming when other receivers were injured.

Weems caught four balls for 69 yards in Thursday's win over the Buccaneers.

Weems finished with a nice statline, especially considering he's usually buried behind Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester on the depth chart. He'll have limited upside as long as White remains on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, but it sounds as if the veteran may be back on the field for Week 4, thus relegating Weems to certain situational packages.

Weems signed with the Falcons on Thursday.

Weems began his NFL career with four seasons for the Falcons, for whom he made the Pro Bowl as a special teams member in 2011. Now, with wideout Drew Davis (foot) destined for the PUP list to begin this season, Weems will have an opportunity make Atlanta's team once again.

The Bears cut Weems on Saturday.

Weems signed a three-year deal with the Bears prior to the 2012 season, catching just three passes for 35 yards since then. He also failed to make an impact as a returner, returning just 18 kickoffs for 288 yards. Unless he convinces a team that he can regain his form as the high level kick and punt returner he was in Atlanta in 2010, Weems might struggle to find work.

Weems didn't see a target in the passing game during Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars.

With Marquess Wilson likely to miss the first few weeks with a broken collarbone, Weems is among the group of receivers who could be counted upon to replace his production. Free agent signing Josh Morgan appears to be the likeliest candidate to see work in three-receiver sets, but Weems will still have a great chance at clinching a roster spot due to his prowess on special teams coverage units.
