NFL DRAFT 2018: Notre Dame LB Nyles Morgan Signs With Chicago Bears

Former Irish captain will get a shot to play in the NFL with the hometown Bears.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Notre Dame vs Louisiana State Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

The fomer starting linebacker and capatain for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish signs as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears. Morgan, a native of Chicago, spent four seasons at Notre Dame and was a nice player for the Irish.

Notre Dame fans will always probably remember the frustration of Brian VanGorder NOT playing Morgan as an underclassman - despite his many physical gifts. I will choose to remember him as one of those hard-hitting lunchpail guys that never backed down, and always - always played hard and with class.

Good luck in Chicago Nyles!
