Details Revealed In Bears, Raiders Trade For Khalil Mack

Rams just set bar for Khalil Mack market with record deal

Rams just set bar for Khalil Mack market with record deal

The Bears' biggest concern going into the season was edge rushing, and Mack nearly instantly solves that. The Bears sent a first round pick in 2019 and one in 2020 for Mack and also kicked in a 2020 3rd round pick, but the Raiders also kicked in a 2020 second back to Chicago.

Rapaport went on to say, "there could be more picks involved, a possible swap of late picks". Let's examine what else the Bears gave up to get Mack.

It took about fifteen minutes for the news to set in, before Irvin returned with a follow-up tweet that pointed to his focus on moving forward. The Raiders will have to figure out a way to replace the production of a player who went to three straight Pro Bowls, and was the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Mack has been a cornerstone in terms of health, starting all 64 games since 2014.

After trading for Mack, a playoff berth is a realistic goal and anything short of that is going to feel like a disappointment, even if Mack has 15 sacks and forces a handful of fumbles.

Oakland gets first-round picks in 2019 and 2020, a third-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-rounder in 2019 from the Bears.




Questionable draft picks and signings were littered throughout Gruden's first offseason back in the driver's seat of an National Football League franchise.

Multiple teams had been actively bidding for Mack's services over the past 48 hours, ESPN reported, including the New York Jets.

It's highly unlikely the Bears would find an impact player like Mack drafting somewhere in the mid-to-late first round. I applaud the move. A dominant defense helps ease second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky and his offensive talent. But instead of signing Mack to a comparable deal, the Raiders and their new coach, Jon Gruden, are shipping him off, leaving a team coming off a 6-10 season without its best player.

It's not what many Raiders fans, and Raiders players, want to hear. Many NFL observers viewed the Bears as a team on the rise.

Gruden had called Mack Oakland's best player but made a decision to go in a different direction rather than give another player a contract worth more than $20 million a year after Carr got a lucrative extension last summer.

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year, signed a six-year, $135 million deal Friday, with $87 million guaranteed, that made him the highest-paid defensive player in league history.
