Raiders acquire two first-round selections, trade DE Khalil Mack

Bills don't bode well in The Ringer's preseason power rankings

First reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears shipped out two first rounders to Oakland for the 27-year-old, per NFL Network's Ian Rapaport.

The Chicago Bears have pulled off a whopper of a trade the likes of which the team hasn't seen in almost a decade.

Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year, signed a six-year, $135 million deal Friday, with $87 million guaranteed, that made him the highest-paid defensive player in league history.

Mack was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team in 2014 and earned First Team All-Pro selections in two consecutive seasons (2015-16). Over the last three seasons, he's picked up 36.5 sacks and forced eight fumbles in that time span. He had 10.5 sacks last season. Mack would've been a huge piece of their puzzle, but a contender would've been much tougher to build without their next two first-round picks. But as the contract stalemates around the league got solved, Mack's never did.

The Bears weren't the only team trying to land Mack.

He also called out Canada for 'decades of trade abuse, ' saying if the two nations can't negotiate a fair deal, talks will be off. Canadians are stunned by the repeated broadsides from what had always been their closest ally and some have even begun boycotts.

The Bears fired coach John Fox after a five-win season and 14-34 record in his three years. A year ago he was the only defensive player in the league to tally at least 75 tackles, 10 sacks, five passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Mack will be playing for the Chicago Bears. According to Over the Cap, the Bears had roughly $23.9 million in cap space heading into the weekend, making them one of just seven teams with more than $20 million in space. The 49ers kept defensive ends Ronald Blair, Cassius Marsh and Dekoda Watson in place of Attaochu, who missed time during training camp with a hamstring injury.

This is one of the worst moves Gruden could have decided to make, and there's no way the guys in the front office were on the same page about this.

One of the biggest advocates pushing the Oakland Raiders to get a Khalil Mack contract extension done was his good teammate Bruce Irvin.

On Saturday morning, many Chicago Bears fans woke up to the breaking news of a blockbuster trade that would make their team instant contenders in the NFC.

Mack had been a cornerstone in Oakland along with Carr ever since being drafted and helped the Raiders end a 13-year playoff drought in 2016.
