Chicago Bears: 10 bold predictions following Khalil Mack trade

Joe Thomas sounds off against Jon Gruden and Raiders Khalil Mack trade

Mack signed a six-year, $141 million extension with the Bears that guarantees $90 million.

Though Gurley gets out of facing Mack in week one, he will, however, be forced to play Mack in week 14 against the Chicago Bears.

Mack, the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year, was looking for a new contract and had been holding out of Raiders camp.

"We want to be able to see some conditioning when he's out there, (if) he's able to really give 100 percent of what he can do", Nagy said. Sure, there's no guarantee the first-round picks will turn into good players. Alongside Mack will be former Georgia stars Roquan Smith and Leonard Floyd, also Kentucky Wildcat Danny Trevathan. "I did have contact with him [Saturday], too, exchanging our best wishes to him and thanking him for being a great Oakland Raider". In a post on Twitter that shows an image of him with running back Jordan Howard, Kanye West said that he thinks the Bears are headed to Super Bowl 53, a belief likely shared by a lot of Chicago fans after the team added defensive end Khalil Mack via a trade with the Oakland Raiders. However, don't expect them to stand pat as head coach Jon Gruden loves to churn the talent at the bottom of the roster. "We just got better". One of the reasons I'm here is because of him", said Gruden, "Unfortunatley we had a standoff with the contract and we could not come to terms. An extension, by the way, Gruden believes wasn't anywhere close to what Oakland was offering. "...'I wanted him gone, he wanted him here.' We made a decision as an organization".

"We instantly created some great depth".




Yeezus just made a bold National Football League prediction: the Chicago Bears are going to the Super Bowl next year.

"Khalil is a true professional".

The Bears are taking a huge financial risk by investing so much guaranteed money in one asset, but GM Ryan Pace's job security isn't tied to how well Mack plays, now is it?

As good as Mack is, he's not giving a team "Hall of Fame quarterback" production. Jones was far and away Green Bay's most efficient rusher in 2017, and his absence leaves Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery-who left the Pack's third preseason game with an injury and was sidelined for their fourth-to shoulder the load.
