McKenzie said the Raiders intention is to pay their top free agents.
"You could say a lot of different things, but until I go out there and play, I'm not a big talker", Khalil Mack said.
And after holding out from Oakland's team activities during the offseason, Mack enthusiastically looks forward to absorbing the Bears' defensive scheme to become a contributor once he catches his breath with his new team. "The Bears made us an offer that we thought was really unique and very, very tough to say goodbye to a great player, but here we are today". When it seemed like it was going that way, we decided to make a move with the trade.
Liverpool to host Chelsea in EFL Cup third round
A date for the fixture has not yet been confirmed, but the clash will be played during the week beginning on Monday 24 September. Holders Man City are now the favourites to win the Carabao Cup at 10/3, with Chelsea and Liverpool both at odds of 6/1.
They agreed on a deal Saturday to send Mack to Chicago for a compensation package that included two first-round picks. They're going to miss Khalil. "I'm going to come in and be a hard worker and I'm going to try to lead by example and be a great teammate, and everything on the field is going to take care of itself". Let's make that point known now. Mack belongs to the same draft class as quarterback Derek Carr, who earned an extension last summer. We just could not get it worked out with Khalil.
Bears chairman George McCaskey offered his blessing on this monumental move for his family's franchise, supporting Pace's latest bold conviction and backing the financial commitment Mack so desired. We're not anxious about the outside perception of free agency. Sometimes you can't keep them all.
On Sunday night, Mack tweeted his gratitude to the Raiders fan base. "When it seemed like it was going that way, we decided to make a move with the trade".
"I'm just proud that I work for an organization that's willing to be aggressive in these times", Pace said.
Chelsea fans made an exciting observation about Mateo Kovacic in Bournemouth win
Chelsea have the opportunity to extend their flawless start under new manager Maurizio Sarri on Saturday. There's no two ways about it, Kovacic means business at Chelsea .
"It's just that feeling that they're excited to have you, and just understanding what's going on over here right now", Mack said. Still, that doesn't mean it was impossible for the Raiders to keep Mack. It's asid to have been for two first round draft picks.
Gruden was also asked why the Raiders did not simply wait Mack out, to see if he would report under his current contract. Parting with the pair of first-round picks was hardly a concern to Pace, who rationalized it fairly simply: We got Khalil Mack.
It was a proud day for Mack and the Bears, and they hope for many more to come.
