It wasn't a plan to trade Mack to Bears — Raiders GM

Khalil Mack reportedly dealt to the Bears

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Twitter that a trade will bring 2016 Defensive Player of the Year, 3-time Pro Bowl, and 2-time All-Pro first team linebacker Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears from the Oakland Raiders.

Gruden was sacked from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, the same year defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth signed a massive contract with the Washington Redskins (seven years, $100 million) and the same year the Denver Broncos traded star quarterback Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears for a bounty of draft picks. 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. As we now know, Mack didn't get just any old payday, he set a new standard for defensive players.

As for the Bears, the acquisition of Mack is an enormous boost.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Bears are sending two first-round picks to the Oakland Raiders, and possibly more. Mack did not want to play the season under his rookie contract. He is one of the most versatile defenders in the NFL. The Bears finally have the star-caliber player they've been missing on defense.

"What a shock. Now move on and win. time to beat the Rams!" "And then we'll just kind of have to listen to his feedback on where he's at".

Producer Slams NBC for Impeding Weinstein Story: ‘Massive Breach of Journalistic Integrity’
Once the story broke, NBC News employees were confused as to why their bosses had willingly let go of such an explosive story. Noah Oppenheim , the president of NBC News, told the New York Times Farrow "was never told to stop in the way he's implying".

On Sunday afternoon he was having a news conference as the newest star of the Chicago Bears, with a $141 million contract in his pocket and a football-crazed city looking at him as a savior. However, Mack should provide nothing but positives once he gets acclimated in the Bears' front seven.

One of the biggest advocates pushing the Oakland Raiders to get a Khalil Mack contract extension done was his good teammate Bruce Irvin. No longer are they just an intriguing team building around quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

This is one of the worst moves Gruden could have decided to make, and there's no way the guys in the front office were on the same page about this.

He was conditionally reinstated previous year and played in 15 games for Pittsburgh with eight starts, but reportedly asked for a trade last season since he didn't feel he was getting the ball enough.

Mack is a former No. 5 overall pick out of Buffalo. With his speed and power, Mack gives the Bears a huge threat on the edge to go with Leonard Floyd on the opposite side.
