This is great news! Hopefully he will be considered too small for the NFL, but then again a lot of people thought that about Wes Welker and look at what he has done.

I bet Weston has the same "Out" clause that Fantuz had regarding the NFL. I would love to see Weston get a chance with an NFL club because he is a class guy.
