Several teams hosted Weber in an effort to convince him to sign with them. If none of those teams had any inclination to offer him a contract why were they wasting everyone's time by trying to woo him?

Teams were trying to convince Weber to accept their offers, not the other way around. He had plenty of suitors and could've easily gotten a suitable contract even if Philadelphia was out of the picture.
