The Bears signed 10 of their players to reserve/futures contracts Sunday, including Khalil Mack’s little brother.

Besides outside linebacker Ledarius Mack, the Bears also signed wide receivers Rodney Adams and Thomas Ives, defensive backs Marqui Christian, Xavier Crawford and Teez Tabor, offensive linemen Dieter Eiselen and Badara Traore, tight end Jesper Horsted and defensive tackle LaCale London.

A team can give reserve/futures deals to players who didn’t finish the season on the 53-man roster. They go into effect at the start of the league year in March and count toward the 90-man offseason roster.

None of the above recorded a stat for the Bears this season.

Mack — who like brother Khalil played collegiately for the Buffalo Bulls — spent most of his rookie season on the Bears’ practice squad.
