Lions Named As Potential Landing Spot For Raiders DE Khalil Mack

  • Kawakami What’s up with Khalil Mack? Everything still suggests he’ll be in a Raiders uniform Week 1

Yes, it's true. Oakland may consider trading their best player.

Taking off from an idea floated by Paul Gutierrez of ESPN, which said that Mack is a potential preseason trade candidate, Zach Kruse of USA TODAY made some points about how the Green Bay Packers checks the boxes of a team that can be a potential destination for the defensive end via a trade.

Mack, a three-time Pro Bowler and one of the game's top pass rushers, is now holding out from Raiders camp while attempting to get a new deal.

Any team that's willing to acquire Mack would presumably be willing to hand him a massive new contract. And if a team flashed a first-round pick at Oakland for the services of Mack, who wants an extension beyond the nearly $13.5 million he is scheduled to make this season under the fifth-year option of his rookie contract and the two franchise tags that could await him in 2019 and 2020, the Raiders would be silly to not at least listen. Certainly there is a lot to say for being able to draft and develop eight straight playoff teams, but, is it possible that if the Packers signed a few more free agents or converted their draft capital into a few more impact players via trades, that we could be reflecting upon a run that would be closing in on ten straight playoff appearances, winning three super bowls?

But, apparently Mack wants even more than that.

Oakland star linebacker Khalil Mack has yet to report to Raiders training camp, as part of a holdout for a new deal.

Raiders first-year head coach Jon Gruden recently took a slight shot at Mack when he told NFL Network that the defense wasn't good with Mack in 2017.

Gutierrez says that Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie asked him at the National Football League owners meetings back in March if he might just have an extra $100 million laying around to help pay Mack. A joke, to be sure, but jokes can be indicative of a deeper reality.

That's why, quite simply, they need to be looking for multiple high-value assets.
