SHARE Weil receives better offer from Rams

Illinois fullback Mike Weil got a better offer than reuniting with former Illinois coach Ron Turner for the weekend.

The St. Louis Rams have signed him to a contract as an undrafted free agent, meaning he won’t be at Halas Hall this weekend.

It’s not like what the team experienced last season with Notre Dame running back Darius Walker. The Bears had reached a verbal agreement with him before he changed his mind and eventually signed with Houston.

This was a better offer with more upside for Weil.
