As foretold by the prophecy of Mark Morrison, the return of the Mack has happened.
The Chicago Bears have a new member of their practice squad. Outside linebacker Ledarius Mack rejoins the organization nine days after being waived as part of roster cuts. Mack, who is the younger brother of All-Pro pass-rusher Khalil Mack, signed with the team as a free agent after the 2020 NFL Draft. He didn’t have a normal ramp-up period or preseason to build a case for a spot on the season-opening roster, but hung around long enough to merit a conversation about his future.
As a senior at Buffalo, Ledarius Mack picked up seven sacks and tacked on 11 tackles-for-loss. So in addition to being related to a stud pass-rusher, the younger Mack showed he can bring down quarterbacks, too:
In a corresponding move making room for Mack on the practice squad, the Bears released defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson.
