Two more Bears will join the hallowed ranks of #ProBears after the 2021 NFL draft. On Saturday evening, Zeandae Johnson announced that he will be joining teammate Camryn Bynum on the Minnesota Vikings in 2021. Johnson, who appeared in 41 career games for Cal, recorded 59 tackles and 5.5 sacks over the course of his four-year career. He will fight to make a Vikings roster that is filling out the depth chart at defensive end. 

Similarly, Jake Curhan will get a chance to stick on an NFL roster as well, as he announced that he will be signing with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent. Curhan started 40 of 42 possible games at right tackle at Cal and was an all Pac-12 honorable selection for his junior and senior seasons.  

Life as an undrafted free agent in the NFL is never easy, and it takes a lot of hard work just to make a roster. But hopefully, these two Bears can write their own Cinderella stories and make a way in the ever-changing landscape of the NFL.
