Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga readies for Chicago Bears’ new acquistion and pass rusher extraordinaire Khalil Mack
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Right tackle Bryan Bulaga is familiar enough with the pass-rushing prowess of Khalil Mack to know what to expect when the Chicago Bears visit Lambeau Field on Sunday night.
No film necessary of Mack playing with his new team.
It’ll be up to Bulaga, the veteran Green Bay Packers lineman, to keep Mack out of quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ face.
“Well I mean he’s a complete player,” Bulaga said after practice Wednesday. “He has power, he has speed, he has good hands, so from a pass-rushing standpoint, he is a complete rusher. Then he plays the run really well too. … He deserves all that money.”
A blockbuster trade sent Mack from the Raiders to the Bears last weekend.
The Packers have faced Mack once before, when Green Bay won 30-20 at Oakland on Dec. 20, 2015. Then a second-year player, Mack had one of his 15 sacks that season in that game, though he had just two tackles.
