Undrafted Wisconsin Badger set for new role with Chicago Bears
Rookie undrafted free agent Jack Sanborn is prepared to make his mark in the NFL.
Sanborn, the former Wisconsin Badger, went undrafted in 2022 after an extremely productive college career in Madison. Sanborn led the Badgers in tackles in 2019 and 2020 and achieved 1st team All-Big Ten honors as a senior.
Sanborn went undrafted and quickly caught on with the Chicago Bears. Sanborn made the initial roster, and now appears set to finally get consistent playing time following the trade of Roquan Smith.
Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles said on the Bears pregame show that linebacker Jack Sanborn is going to be playing a lot more snaps and is excited to see what he does with it.
Poles: “I know he’s a guy that’s going to be in the right position and he’s gonna make plays for us.”

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles has confidence in the rookie to step in and make plays. Sanborn will be needed after the Bears traded away starting LB Smith before Week 9.
Sanborn has collected 5 tackles thus far in his rookie season but seems primed to make more plays as the season continues.
