Khalil Mack he was worth every penny the Chicago Bears gave him in the 2018 season. He had 12.5 sacks, 18 quarterback hits and 6 forced fumbles, even scoring a defensive touchdown. Mack was solid again in 2019, but he didn't quite reach those same heights, tallying 8.5 sacks and 14 QB hits.

But apparently, Mack is looking to flip the script this season. And this quote from the Bears linebacker coach Ted Monachino should get Chicago fans really pumped for his 2020 campaign.

He’s training like I have never seen anybody train before... Motivation is not an issue with Khalil; never has been... But what I’ll tell you is that he has approached this offseason with something to prove — and that’s something that I think we all can be encouraged by. I think that that’s something that’s exciting, when a player of his caliber approaches his work the way he has approached it.

Bears fans have to love seeing that kind of work ethic from a player as talented as Mack.

He's already been named to five consecutive Pro Bowls, and gotten three first-team All-Pro selections, but if this quote is any indication, Mack could be in for a massive 2020 campaign.
