RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After head coach Marc Trestman asserted in March that Devin Hester would handle both kick and punt return duties, Weems - who isn't a contributor in the passing game - will have to rely on his reputation as a special teams ace to guarantee his roster spot. With the up-and-coming Joe Anderson offering similar special teams prowess at a much cheaper contract, Weems could be in danger of getting cut.

2012

Weems will not be a strong contributor on offense for the Bears, but will be a big boost in the return game. He was a Pro Bowler in 2011, and should be an ample replacement for Johnny Knox on kickoff returns will acting as the teams fifth receiver.

2011

Weems had his best season to date in 2010, averaging a career high 27.5 yards per kickoff return and 12.8 yards per punt return. The Falcons rewarded him in the offseason with a new contract, and he'll handle the load on special teams again in 2011. He'll be a solid special teams player, but the Falcons have plenty of other offensive weapons, so don't expect Weems to do much as a wide receiver. He only tallied 61 receiving yards in 2010.

2010

Weems was the Falcons' leading punt and kick returner in 2009 but is in a battle with rookie Dominique Franks to retain those duties.
