The fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft out of Buffalo, Mack has established himself as one of the best rushing linebackers in the National Football League during the first four seasons of his career. According to NFL.com, the Bears have agreed to send two first-round picks plus some additional unspecified compensation. Green Bay has two first-round picks in the 2019 draft and millions in cap space in future years. Reports indicate that the holdout could continue into the regular and there are even some rumors that the Raiders could trade the former Defensive Player of the Year.
The trade rumors surrounding Khalil Mack are heating up as we enter roster cut-down weekend in the NFL.
Either way, the trade brings the Mack saga to a swift and shocking end in Oakland. "The spotlight is very clearly on Jon Gruden", Rapoport said. This offseason, Oakland exercised their right to pick up Mack's fifth year option at an annual salary of $13.846 million. "I've been told he's been offered a player for Khalil Mack".
Schefter also reported on ESPN's SportsCenter that the Bears had been in talks with the Raiders throughout the night, and had received permission to speak with Mack and his representatives regarding terms on a new contract.
By contrast, Mack's pass-rush grade was 88.3, giving him an average of 90.1 over the past three seasons.
