According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders will trade Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears. The teams are still working through the deal.
However, it is still expected that he will be dealt. Mack has been holding out with the Raiders.
The Raiders and Mack’s Representatives broke off contract talks. Plus, he has reportedly not talked to Head Coach Jon Gruden since he was hired back in January.
Mack was one of two star defensive players, who were holding out. Los Angeles Rams star defensive tackle Aaron Donald was holding out before striking a deal on Friday.
Donald is now the highest-paid defensive player with a six-year, $135 million deal. It is believed Mack, when he signs with the Bears, could receive a deal within the neighborhood of Donald’s contract, or even larger than the one that Donald signed.
During the 2017 season, Mack’s fourth season with the team, he had 78 tackles, including 15 tackles for a loss and 22 quarterback hits. He also had 10.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and three pass deflections.
Mack has had three straight seasons, where he had registered double-digit sacks. He had 11.0 sacks in 2016 and a career-best 15.0 sacks in 2015.
With the Raiders, he made 64 starts. He had 303 tackles, including 68 tackles for a loss and 84 quarterback hits.
He had 40.5 sacks, one interception, which was returned for a six-yard interception return for a touchdown; nine forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and 11 pass deflections.
