Bears Release WR Eric Weems



The Chicago Bears announced the release WR Eric Weems on Saturday. The team also announced the signing of veteran WR Santonio Holmes as well.

Weems, 29, signed a three-year contract worth $4.24 million that included $1.5 million guaranteed.

Chicago had Weems lining up with the first-team offense on Thursday, but he struggled a bit as a kicker returner during the game and there was some question regarding his ability to handle the No. 3 receiver role while Marquess Wilson is out.

During his two years with the Bears, Weems caught three passes for 35 yards receiving and totaled 288 kick return yards.
