The Chicago Bears are expected to pull off a whopper of a trade the likes of which the team hasn't seen in about a decade. Mack has held out of training camp and preseason action in hopes of securing a lucrative extension as he is due to earn $13.846 million in the fifth and final year of his rookie contract. It's an expensive deal and the impending contract is going to be massive but getting one of the two or three best defensive players in the National Football League isn't supposed to be cheap.
He finished last season with 10.5 sacks.
While he's considered one of the most dominant at his position, he isn't being paid like it.
'Private' mess: Elon Musk's credibility goes from bad to worse
Musk also said the company "absolutely must stay focused on ramping Model 3 and becoming profitable". According to the report, the new institutional investors would want greater control of the company.
Besides that, behind Matthews and Perry are a slew of unproven and mediocre players in Reggie Gilbert, Kyler Fackrell and Vince Biegel - names who may not even be on the roster in just a season or two. He'll play his prime years of it in Chicago.
Sources: The #Bears are giving 2 first-round picks to the #Raiders for star Khalil Mack. A likely trade candidate might've been Randall Cobb, who is entering the previous year of his deal and who was rumored to have been on the trade block anyway. He made the aggressive move to jump up and grab QB Mitch Trubisky in the 2017 NFL Draft (one that included a package of draft picks that year) and he dealt a 2019 second-round pick to move up for Anthony Miller during this year's draft. Adding him to the Bears defense will allay concerns about their depth at outside linebacker and Leonard Floyd's broken right hand, which will require him to wear a club to start the season.
Mack is a former No. 5 overall pick out of Buffalo. With Gruden open to dealing Mack, there was no way Davis was going to veto him after giving him $100 million to coach the team. For now, though, we sit back and wait.
