Jon Gruden’s Explanation For Khalil Mack Trade Makes Absolutely No Sense

  • Gruden: We all Came to a Decision on Mack Together

Derek Carr didn't expect Khalil Mack to be traded, but the quarterback says the Oakland Raiders are over the shock of this past weekend's move.

Gruden and Carr are excited about both working together and the new wrinkles in the offense that they will unveil against the Rams. 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. I don't blame Gurley, or any running back, for not wanting to absorb a tackle from the University of Buffalo great. Unless you don't think Khalil Mack is worthy of being paid like one the best defensive players in the game, it's hard not to fault GM Reggie McKenzie for bungling contract negotiations. Alongside Mack will be former Georgia stars Roquan Smith and Leonard Floyd, also Kentucky Wildcat Danny Trevathan.

"We're going to be second-guessed until the cows come home on this". We got people to show up, and it wasn't just the two of us.

"I was lucky enough to play for two great organizations", Bennett said a year ago. Eclipsing Donald's contract, Mack inked a six-year, $141 million contract with $90 million guaranteed. Besides Mack, Chicago gets a second-round pick and a conditional fifth-rounder in 2020. "We both have the same goals, but I just don't want him to win the Super Bowl". The a year ago of my career I went up there and wasn't any good anymore and stole their money.

The man who was shot was taken to a nearby hospital, but his condition is unknown, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The race track later tweeted that the situation was contained, and the concert would go on as scheduled.

Perhaps we should have all seen the Khalil Mack trade - or at least the possibility of it - coming when Jon Gruden pointed out how lousy the Raiders defense was with Mack. I believe that 100 per cent. "When things like this happen and when decisions are made we have guys in our locker room who know how to handle it like men". That's the only thing we won't cross off the list. "We all will miss him, but we will all move on".

"We won't be able to win a ring together". The Packers have ranked in the NFL's bottom 10 in pass defense each of the past two seasons, but have also made significant investments in defensive backs in recent drafts. Based on the fact that Green Bay felt the need to sign the likes of LeShun Daniels and Bronson Hill to contracts in late August, it seems that the team doesn't feel especially comfortable with what it has available.

"That's what makes it hard", Carr said. Hearing about Mack's departure was tough to take, though they were happy he got a monster deal. That means they'll be free to watch the "Sunday Night Football" game between the Green Bay Packers and the ...
