Mack, 31, spent four years with the Bears after being acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Oakland Raiders. He recorded 36 sacks during his time in Chicago but missed the final 10 games of last season due to a foot injury that required surgery.

Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said at the combine last week that the team planned to take advantage of Justin Herbert being on a rookie contract. In a matter of days they've been able to finalize a long-term deal with Mike Williams and a trade for Mack.

Mack will now pair up with Joey Bosa, giving Los Angeles one of the NFL's most ferocious pairs of pass rushers. Chargers head coach Brandon Staley was Mack's linebackers coach in Chicago in 2018.
