Mack, Bears agree to record deal

Denver Broncos: Khalil Mack mercifully traded out of the division

The long stand-off between Khalil Mack and the Oakland Raiders ended on Saturday morning with the Raiders blinking first and trading the 016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year to the Chicago Bears for a package of draft picks. Rapoport reported that the Bears signed Mack to a six-year, $141-million extension - the richest ever for a defensive player, with $60-million guaranteed at signing, and $30 million more in guarantees possible.

While Raider Nation was reeling from the news that the team had traded Mack, the organization was busy making other moves. "He brings a ton on the field, but he really fits what we are building in our locker room, too".

The Raiders exercised their fifth-year option, worth almost $14 million, on Mack.

Now all of a sudden they have a new face of the franchise after shipping a couple first-round picks for Mack. They all understood that adding a player of Mack's caliber changes the dynamic around Halas Hall, where winning now becomes an immediate goal.

Oakland will get first-round selections in 2019 and 2020, a sixth-rounder next year and a third-rounder in 2020. He later wrote, "What a shock". "It was at the end, in the final hour, that it just hit".

Since being drafted by the Raiders in 2014, Mack has racked up 29 tackles, 10 sacks, and three forced fumbles against the Broncos.

A thrilled Bears left tackle Charles Leno Jr. tweeted a video of himself dancing to Mark Morrison's "Return of the Mack".

To assess this, I first looked at where a team like the Bears might be picking.

The trade was one of the biggest in National Football League history, a former defensive player of the year changing teams in his prime.

This is one hell of a bold move.

Bryant has a history of suspensions as he was banned four games in 2015 and then missed the entire 2016 season with the Steelers for violating the same substance abuse policy. The Steelers historically pick last in the first round so the value of those picks aren't the same as a team that picks in the top 10 every season. They did hire a new coach in the offseason, in Matt Nagy, and are crossing their fingers that he can do for their young quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, what Sean McVay's arrival in L.A. did for Jared Goff and the Rams last season.

At the very least, Gruden should have done the trade before this year's draft (he thought about it) and landed Roquan Smith or another impact player that could have helped right away.

It's a deal that clearly signifies that the Bears are in go-for-it mode.
