The Chicago Bears have doubled down on the Mack family by signing Ledarius Mack, the younger brother of star Khalil Mack, as an undrafted free agent.
The team announced the roster move on Tuesday, along with 10 other undrafted free agents who have agreed to terms with the Bears.
Like his older brother, Mack played his college ball at Buffalo, where he appeared in 27 games tallying 10 sacks and four forced fumbles for the Bulls. Last season, he earned second-team all-Mid-American Conference honors after logging eight sacks, three forced fumbles and 12 tackles for a loss.
Unlike his superstar brother, Ledarius Mack will have a much harder road to making an NFL roster. That said, how cool would it be to see the two Mack brothers rushing the passer at the same time?
At least for a little while, he’ll have the rare chance to play football at the NFL level with a sibling.
