The Bears have agreed to a three-year contract with special teams star Eric Weems.||||||| Weems spent his first five seasons with Atlanta and was the NFC's special-teams selection for the Pro Bowl in 2010. Signing Weems could help ease the loss of Pro Bowl gunner Corey Graham if he does not re-sign and it adds depth to the return game, with Devin Hester hobbled at times by injuries last season and Johnny Knox recovering from spinal surgery. Weems has 41 career special-teams tackles, 77 punt returns for 815 yards and 113 kickoff returns for 2,896 yards.
