This is an interesting move and it could signal a few things. We did see T.J. Hockenson miss a few plays while being evaluated for a concussion but he came back to the game with no issues.
It could mean that they are looking to move on from either Ben Ellefson who they have designated to return from injury or rookie Nick Muse who cannot be elevated from the practice squad again without being added to the active roster first.
Mack is a 6’5″, 245lb tight end that was drafted in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. He was most recently with the Green Bay Packers and was just released from their injured reserve list.
