The Rouge et Or’s Mathieu Betts, shown here last November when he received his third straight J.P. Metras trophy as USports top lineman, will be heading to the Windy City to try for a spot with the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

Université Laval’s Mathieu Betts, a lineman for the Rouge et Or football team, signed a contract as a free agent with the Chicago Bears of the National Football League, minutes after going undrafted in last week’s NFL draft.
