BREAKING Raiders Trade Khalil Mack To Chicago Bears In Blockbuster Deal By Kevin Fiddler- Sep 1 2018 2131

A person with direct knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press that Oakland will get first-round selections in 2019 and 2020, a sixth-rounder next year and a third-rounder in 2020.

The reaction by players was visceral and displayed for all to see on social media, with quarterback Derek Carr tweeting Saturday, "No way", and Bruce Irvin adding, "No [expletive] way".

Gruden addressed the trade Sunday, and he made things a whole lot more confusing while explaining why the deal happened. He got some draft picks, but that's one of the best defensive players in the league. What we're hoping with James is that we as coaches can get him to the point where he can just continue to grow each and every day in his technique.

For his part, Gruden said the right move ultimately was to trade Mack to give the Raiders the draft picks and salary-cap room needed to rebuild a depleted roster.

The Raiders may decide against trading Mack, but based on a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it might not be the asking price that holds them back. Mack has been working out on his own, and Nagy said he looks to be in excellent shape, but his availability for Week One will depend on how he looks physically in practices this week, which began Monday morning inside the Walter Payton Center. "That's gonna be just communication between him, myself, (defensive coordinator) Vic (Fangio) and our trainers on a day-to-day basis". A unit that had plenty of good pieces was missing a star pass rusher, and that's what the 27-year-old Mack is, with plenty left in his prime. One of the reasons I'm here is because of him", said Gruden, "Unfortunatley we had a standoff with the contract and we could not come to terms.

Mack, a three-time Pro Bowl player, tallied 10 1/2 sacks and 61 solo tackles with the Raiders last season.

"I don't believe we were anywhere close to where the Bears were", Gruden said.

Carr took a bit less to get Jackson done and keep the Raiders on schedule to extend Mack the following offseason. "We all knew. Gabe, Jelly, me, Khalil, we all saw it coming". And the Bears made us an offer that we thought was really unique.

"We don't have to like or agree with everything", Carr said. "We've got to have a good, solid plan with that balance of not doing too much, but pushing him to where we get him ready".
