Bears acquire, extend Khalil Mack in blockbuster trade with Raiders

Share

The Oakland Raiders chose to trade their superstar out to the Chicago Bears and that has to put a grin on the face of Philip Rivers and the rest of that offensive line. As part of the trade terms, the Raiders will receive the Bears' sixth-round selection in next year's NFL Draft, in addition to a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. One thing that makes him one of the best tackles in the league is consistently facing some of the best pass-rushers that the NFL has to offer.

Entering the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, Mack, 27, is due to make $13.85 million this season. The Bears finally have the star-caliber player they've been missing on defense.

Just about every other National Football League team with reasonable salary cap space would have locked up a franchise cornerstone like Mack to a lucrative contract extension, but Oakland had no interest. However, the Bears and their fans should be feeling like they just got a Honda price for a Mercedes-Benz.

Still, it's surprising that the Raiders let Mack go.

After a franchise-altering Saturday morning, the Bears that we have come to know in the last three seasons are no more. He's one of the premier defenders in the NFL.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie drafted Mack in the first round (fifth overall) in 2014.

In Chicago, Mack will now join a loaded Bears defense that includes Roquan Smith, Akiem Hicks, Leonard Floyd and Danny Trevathan. Because superstar Khalil Mack has been traded away from the AFC West.

Meanwhile, while there is a lesser chance of hitting with the Raiders' package, there is also higher variance and the chance of multiple good players with the two picks and the additional money to spend. And now they have one of the NFL's best defensive players - a big exclamation point to a busy off-season.

The deal breaks the six-year, $135m (£104m) record contract defensive tackle Aaron Donald signed with the Los Angeles Rams a day earlier. They added some new playmaking targets, most notably former Jacksonville Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson. Like I said, I wouldn't deal him, but the idea that there's no merit doing it-given the haul Oakland got from Chicago and where Gruden saw the team-is off-base.
