Raiders and Khalil Mack ‘essentially nowhere’ in contract talks

Could Raiders WR Martavis Bryant start in Week 1

According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders position on Khalil Mack hasn't changed in the wake of Aaron Donald's massive contract extension.

The city of Chicago is celebrating the new and improved Monsters of the Midway after Khalil Mack joined the Bears on a trade from the Raiders.

Also passing along the consistent company line is The Athletic's Vic Tafur, who has remained adamant for months that the Raiders are not going to trade Mack.

Mack will suit up for his new team on September 9 when the Bears travel to Green Bay for a Sunday night matchup with the Packers. Now the linebacker is on the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, but hasn't shown up for preseason workouts in hopes of getting a new contract.




The move is a true blockbuster, as well as one that new Raiders head coach Jon Gruden apparently was eager to make. "Obviously you want to have your best player here". Since 2015, Mack has produced double-digit sacks and was the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2016.

Mack is a former No. 5 overall pick out of Buffalo. And, well, let's just say his departure isn't endorsed by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and linebacker Bruce Irvin.
