Mourners gather for Aretha Franklin’s high-profile funeral
The high-profile status of Aretha Franklin's funeral has been circling the press cycle since news first broke of her death. Franklin was dressed in her third outfit of the week, a rose gold gown , for her final public viewing on Thursday.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie drafted Mack in the first round (fifth overall) in 2014.

And while two first-round picks is certainly a steep asking price, the impact Mack will make this year and for several seasons to come greatly outweighs any draft-related return.

The fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft out of Buffalo, Mack has established himself as one of the best rushing linebackers in the National Football League during the first four seasons of his career. And, well, let's just say his departure isn't endorsed by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and linebacker Bruce Irvin. He could be back for the season opener, but would have to play with his injured right hand casted and protected by a padded club.

"What a shock. Now move on and win. time to beat the Rams!".
