Looks like the Bears could be zeroing in on Illinois fullback Russ Weil as a potential free-agent signing.
Weil, from Minooka, got extensive action the last three seasons for the Illini and has experience on special teams also.
One other note … the Bears were outbid by Kansas City for the services of another UDFA, Nebraska linebacker Steve Octavien.
Illinois kicker Jason Reda went to Cleveland as a UDFA. Illini defensive tackle Chris Norwell hooked on with New England and safety Kevin Mitchell is headed to Washington.
Definitively, this is the final post of the evening.
