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.
