Khalil Delshon Mack is an American football outside linebacker for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Buffalo, and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the fifth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.


Mack holds the all-time NCAA record for forced fumbles and is also tied for career tackles for loss in the NCAA. In 2015, he became the first player in NFL history to be selected first-team All-Pro at two different positions (unanimous selection at defensive end and consensus selection at outside linebacker) by the Associated Press (AP), the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA), and the Sporting News (SN) for performance in the same season.

In September 2018, Mack was traded to the Bears for two first-round draft picks and signed a six-year, $141 million extension, becoming the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history. He is widely recognized as one of the most dominant defensive players currently playing in the NFL.

On December 17, 2019, Mack was named a starter for the 2020 Pro Bowl.[107] Mack finished the season with 47 combined tackles (40 solo), 8.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and four pass deflections in 16 games and starts.

On December 21, Mack was named to the Pro Bowl for the sixth consecutive season. At the time of the announcement, he had eight sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and an interception.

Mack taught himself to play guitar as a freshman at the University at Buffalo and enjoys singing and writing music. His reputation as a singer led his Raiders teammates to attempt to goad him into singing R. Kelly and Usher songs.
