Bears landing Khalil Mack in wild National Football League blockbuster

  • Rams just set bar for Khalil Mack market with record deal

The Bears will acquire All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders in a massive trade involving future picks.

The Raiders have allegedly been seeking two first-round picks in exchange for Mack, though it remains to be seen if that's what they'll get from Chicago in this deal.

This offseason, Oakland exercised their right to pick up Mack's fifth year option at an annual salary of $13.846 million.

The deal breaks the six-year, $135m (£104m) record contract defensive tackle Aaron Donald signed with the Los Angeles Rams a day earlier. Mack belongs to the same draft class as quarterback Derek Carr, who earned an extension last summer.

Since the Bears only have one first-round pick in 2019, this likely means they just traded away their top pick in both 2019 and 2020.

They do still have the cap room to add a player like that, though. He was the league's defensive player of the year in 2016.

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

"They need to pay (him)", Raiders defensive end Bruce Irvin said on Live Instagram on Mack's account on Saturday.

If the team can benefit from the presence of Mack on the field, then individual players should reap rewards as well.

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. When it seemed like it was going that way, we decided to make a move with the trade. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio can make calls with more confidence, knowing Mack can get after the quarterback the way his rushers couldn't the last three years.

This is one hell of a bold move.

If we use just defensive ends and outside linebackers taken in the first round, 24% of them made a pro bowl at least once in their first four seasons.

Khalil Mack might not be going anywhere, but Friday night seemed to be dedicated to reports that Jon Gruden wants to send his best player to another team.

Since entering the league, Mack leads all players with 185 ½ quarterback pressures and ranks second with 68 tackles for loss, according to SportRadar.
