Chicago Bears: 10 bold predictions following Khalil Mack trade

How Khalil Mack trade to Bears impacts the Lions

Newly promoted Raiders radio voice Lincoln Kennedy says that regardless of the news that's out there, the Raiders will not be trading Khalil Mack.

Mack did not participate in the Raiders' training camp or any of their preseason games as he sought the six-year, $141-million contract extension that the Bears were happy to provide, along with the two first-round draft choices it required to pry him away from Jon Gruden's team.

"When we first came in, we planned the next 10 to 15 years of our life, and I think that's the weirdest part, is that it's a little bit of a different chapter now", Carr explained in his first comments since Saturday's trade. "It's one of those sucky things that happen". It's one of those situations, it sucks we lost our friend, we lost our brother but you know we have games to win.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden, whose roster overhaul has 31 players on the 53-man roster who did not appear on Oakland's active roster last season, acknowledged Sunday that Carr's massive five-year, $125 million contract extension, signed in June 2017, was a hindrance for Oakland to re-sign Mack. The Bears made Mack the highest paid defensive player in National Football League history when they inked him to a six-year, $141 million extension after the trade. Gruden said the Raiders' offer to Mack, made back at the start of the league year in March, did not come close.

"And I feel like we did that", Carr said.

"I know there's maybe some feeling that maybe I was involved in a day-to-day negotiation". "So we'll see how it goes, but when he's out there, I can promise you this, when he's going, he's going to give it everything he has".

Are we sure Trump really had bone spurs?
Biden advised McCain's friends and family to remember snapshots of him, such as a glance or a touch. In his final message to the American public, McCain celebrated the honor that serving had been.

"We have a lot of holes, and we have to do what we can to fill them", he adds. Whereas now, I've got a job to do. To be completely honest, I had a lot of guys reach out to me before I even had to reach out to some guys and say, 'we're good man.

Carr said his initial displeasure over the trade has subsided but admitted that it's still been a hard time for himself and his teammates.

"(He) said what he said, invited anyone who needed to talk to him, open door", Carr said.

All the added time that McCarthy has to spend getting ready for Mack is less time that he'll have to game plan against the rest of the Bears' defense.

"He's a great player for us, a great person, a great teammate", Gruden said. "Right now it's straight on the Packers, but as we build this team, what drives us every day is to win championships".
