        Can't wait to hear Gruden address the media. "BEAR with me Oakland fans. We're building for the future...in Las Vegas."

            Mack to be traded to the Bears

            surprised no one has posted this yet.
            we don't have to face him twice/year anymore which is great, but the Raiders will likely have 2 top 10 picks for the next 2 years. Thoughts?

              Why would the Raiders have two top 10 picks? The Bears were the 10th pick this year and there is no reason to think they'll be worse this season with upgrades on defense, at every receiver position, potentially improved 2nd year qb, and an almost certainly improved offensive scheme.

                I posted elsewhere, but I think it should be here....

                Without knowing the exact trade details, and presuming it's 2 firsts and a player, unless that player is of high quality, I give The Bears the win. There are not many Khalil Mack's out there. When you have a super star you keep them...unless you get one of those deals you can not refuse. But those are few. As are Khalil Macks.

                I am not sure quite yet what is going on in Oakland, and if in fact Gruden was a good choice.....because for his price, it was a terrible decision by The Raiders. So, it appears there is disarray out there these days. Maybe a nice exit to Vegas is what this team is going to need, to start anew.

                As for The Bears....again assuming the player involved in the deal is not a top level talent, they will be instantly a better team! They have a nice young O, which should be fun this year as long as Trubisky keeps improving, and now their D has taken a large step forward. Sure, they will miss the 1st rounders....but none of those picks is likely to be another Mack, and they are incremental adjustments, which means they will not be team impacting for at least a couple of years. And the higher they finish, the less impacting they will be.

                    I think Gruden is going to demonstrate why people never should have wanted him in Denver.

                    That being said, it’s understandable why he wouldn’t want to pay Mack an absurd amount of money. The Raiders were a bad defense with Mack. They can be bad without him and not pay him that money.

                    The Bears are banking on him being the best player on what they’re hoping will be a very good defense or better. They seem to have the talent to make that happen.

                      Good for the BEARS, and it's horrible for the Raiders. Good luck in the basement OAK

                        Check out @AdamSchefter’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/sta...483486211?s=09

                        The Bears are paying Mack $141M over 6 seasons, with $90M guaranteed and $60M at signing.

                        I'm going to be unpopular here and agree with Gruden. A team in rebuilding mode such as the Raiders cannot afford that.

                        I also don't actually rate Mack that highly. He's obviously a very good player, but nowhere near as good as Von or Donald.

                          Bears absolutely fleeced Oak with this trade...

                          They got a 2020 2nd pick...

                            Not sure if that really going to happen yet. Mack is a beast on defense, no question, but as good as he is, he has not been able to transform the defense. They've had other issues that even his disruptive presence has not had as big an impact as one might think.

                              They also have Floyd and Roquan Smith to help him out. The Bears also got a 2nd round pick and a 5th round pick
