JSU's Porter reaches UDFA agreement with Chicago Bears

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Robert Porter, a former Jackson State defensive back, became the second Tigers player in the span of 24 hours to reach an undrafted free agent agreement with an NFL team.

Porter, who was second-team All-SWAC last season, tweeted out that he’s headed to the Chicago Bears. Porter played corner at JSU the past two seasons and was the Tigers’ most consistent defensive back in 2015.

He finished with one interception, but defended 12 passes and recorded 38 tackles. Porter is a Detroit, Michigan native and joined the Tigers from Northland Community and Technical College in Minnesota.

Porter did well at Jackson State's pro day, which was highlighted by his 22 reps on the bench press.
