Khalil Mack Trade: Matt Nagy preaches persistence over resistance

Gruden: We all Came to a Decision on Mack Together

Gruden: We all Came to a Decision on Mack Together

Though Gurley gets out of facing Mack in week one, he will, however, be forced to play Mack in week 14 against the Chicago Bears. "It really just shows that management and this organization, we're going for it, and you've got to appreciate aggressiveness like this". Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy wanted to be in the back of the Oakland Raiders minds throughout the summer.

As for what led to this point, Kennedy said the disagreement that led to the months-long standoff between Mack and the Raiders was about a $3 million per-year difference in his valuation.

The Raiders may decide against trading Mack, but based on a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it might not be the asking price that holds them back.

"The negotiation was what it was", Gruden said, via The Athletic. The Jets made an offer, but it did not include multiple first-rounders, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. An extension, by the way, Gruden believes wasn't anywhere close to what Oakland was offering.

With the recent trade of Khalil Mack, everyone seems to be down on the Raiders in 2018.

With everything we know about the Bears - as well as McCarthy's stubbornness regarding playing time for rookies - don't be surprised if the Packers withhold from playing Jaire Alexander or Josh Jackson extensively in Week 1.

Donald, another preseason no-show, came to terms on a six-year, $135 million contract with the Rams. One of the reasons I'm here is because of him.

Still, Carr said he was initially anxious about the effect of Mack being traded on the Raiders' locker room.

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear", Carr said Monday, two days after the Raiders packaged Mack, who had been holding out all offseason, a second-round draft pick in 2020 and a 2020 conditional fifth-rounder to Chicago for the Bears' first-round picks in 2019 and 2020, a sixth-rounder in 2019 and a third-rounder in 2020.

So why trade Mack now?

"It wasn't my goal to trade Khalil when we got here", Gruden said. We would like to have the player stay here. They also talked about winning a Super Bowl together, plans that were scrapped when Mack was abruptly shipped to the Bears. "I would say the clock in the quarterback's head I'm sure is going to be a lot shorter". Just about every time the Bears came up on the schedule in recent seasons, Bennett would get questions about the rivalry and what it was like to play on both sides. But now the Raiders and Gruden will have to find a way to compete in the tough AFC West without one of the league's best defenders.
