Derek Carr: Raiders Over Shock Of Khalil Mack Trade

Adjust Comment Print

The rookie linebacker has not suffered any setbacks, so the assumption is that he will in fact play against the Packers, though it's unclear how many reps he'll get.

"I think, obviously, we had the day off that day and so that made it harder because I'm just sitting there thinking about it all day". The Raiders, who gave Carr a contract that pays him $25 million annually last summer, weren't willing to give him that, so they traded him to the Bears in exchange for two first-round picks (among other draft picks that were exchanged in the deal) and watched the Bears immediately hand Mack the record-breaking contract he desired. In Cutler, the Bears acquired a 26-year-old who had just earned Pro Bowl honors in his third season and seemed destined for greater accomplishments.

"I felt like, when we showed up here, we wanted to change a culture and I think we did that", Carr said. He injured his hamstring on the first day of training camp, didn't play in any preseason games and has practiced mostly in a limited capacity until this week. We know time is of the essence. "Like you said we got close over this period of time". And, he has at least 10.5 sacks in each of the past three seasons.

"Well, you don't know if you can get those picks", Gruden said.

"I'm still going to dunk on him when he comes to my house in the offseason".

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace, left, and head coach Matt Nagy, right, flank newly acquired player Khalil Mack who displays his jersey after speaking with the media during an NFL football news conference Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018, at Halas Hall in Lake Forest, Ill. We don't get paid for that. "He's the type of player that makes everybody's job easier, just because he's such a threat". How many playoff teams won't make it? He's one of my best friends. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the product of Pace's prior bold conviction, will ultimately have the greatest say in what happens during this window for championship contention. "A lot of people were texting me and calling me like, 'Say it ain't true.' But it's true". Mack is a generational talent, and without a clear plan and after a disappointing season in 2017, it's perplexing that they let him go.

Even though Mack isn't yet ready to go full speed for an entire practice, he was good enough on Monday to get a reaction from ORT Bobby Massie.
