As for Mack, he is entering his third season in the NFL. As an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State in 2020, Mack played for the New York Giants. In 2021, he began camp with the Giants but a hamstring injury led to his release on September 7.

In February Mack signed a futures contract with the Niners, as he hopes to earn a spot on the roster when training camp rolls around next month.
