Raiders , Bears agree to Khalil Mack trade

This deal came to fruition Friday as the Raiders began listening to trade offers amid a contract impasse with Mack.

The price tag could be as high as multiple first-round picks.

According to National Football League insider Ian Rapoport, the Raiders are receiving two first-round picks in exchange for one of the NFL's most-dominant edge rushers. He notched 79 total pressures on his own, which is nearly as many as the entire Bears stable of edge rushers managed as a unit last season. He is under contract to be paid almost $14 million this season but wants to be paid like one of the top defensive players in the league, which he is. Offensive tackles are nimble enough to mirror and will win most hand fights against a someone effectively playing one-handed. Similarly to how former Packers general manager Ron Wolf made way for Reggie White, and Ted Thompson for Charles Woodson, this could have been current GM Brian Gutekunst's chance to cement his legacy.

The team's hope and target is Floyd being available for the season opener in Green Bay.

The shooting comes two days after a gunman killed one person and injured two at a high school football game, which Florida Sen. Tony Montagnino, who goes by "G-Tech", said that he got struck twice in the lower body: "One went through".

Besides that, behind Matthews and Perry are a slew of unproven and mediocre players in Reggie Gilbert, Kyler Fackrell and Vince Biegel - names who may not even be on the roster in just a season or two.

Sources: The #Bears are giving 2 first-round picks to the #Raiders for star Khalil Mack. He'll play his prime years of it in Chicago.

Chicago's defense has been heading in the right direction for a while now, but this move has a chance to accelerate the process and gives them a legitimate impact edge rusher to address an area they have struggled with for a while. With Gruden open to dealing Mack, there was no way Davis was going to veto him after giving him $100 million to coach the team.
