PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A person with knowledge of the decision says the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Nashville star defenseman Shea Weber to a 14-year offer sheet worth more than $100 million.

The Sports Network in Canada first reported the offer.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the Flyers hadn't announced the offer.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed early Thursday that the Flyers did sign Weber to an offer sheet. He gave no further details.

Predators part owner W. Brett Wilson posted on Twitter, ``Am aware of Philly offer.''
Weber is the Predators captain and played on a $7.5 million arbitrator's award last season. Nashville has seven days to match the offer.

Nashville already lost free-agent defenseman Ryan Suter to Minnesota this summer. Weber would fill the void left by Philadelphia defenseman Chris Pronger's absence. Pronger has been battling concussion problems and missed most of last season. He finished with one goal in 13 games.
