Eric Weems is the former American football wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons; having played college football at Bethune-Cookman, the 36-year-old was the Falcon's best gunner, to say the least. Moreover, he was a return specialist too.
Eric Weems certainly has the best memory with the Atlanta Falcons as a player; however, in his last match with the team against the New England Patriots had to face a 34-28 overtime defeat.
Following his stint with the Falcons, the 36-year-old signed with the Tennessee Titans, but things really didn't work for him after he left Falcons. It was like to be in a toxic relationship for Weems while playing for Titans, the on-and-off kind of, to be precise.
But Weems believes he is far from retiring just yet; the 36-year-old talked with FHN back in 2019, during which the former Falcons' wide receiver claimed he still feels like he can compete with anybody.
Eric Weems said,
"I felt like I could compete with anybody. In my mind, it didn’t matter what school you went to; it’s all about your competitive nature. I’ll play against anybody. Mano a mano, I think I can stand and hold my own against any man living on this Earth. I truly felt that playing pro football, college football, high school. When I stepped on that field, no other man was going to outdo me or outshine me."
When asked if he would consider playing in another league or would like to coach, the 36-year-old asserted he wouldn't consider any other league other than NFL and admits he can still get back, but said yes to coaching.
Eric Weems said coaching intrigues him big time, and he would like to coach if he gets the opportunity to in the future. He said, "I want to do all things, to go from little league, high school, college, NFL. I think I’d be a really good coach and developer of players, being in an NFL locker room and knowing how it’s done. I know how to bring the knowledge to guys who are younger than me."
While catching up with him was a fun thing to do, there's more you should know what Eric Weems is doing now. Eric is into reality shows, too, and putting his relationship to the test.
