Mack heads to Chicago

Khalil Mack had been waiting a long time on a new contract. It looks like he'll get one, just not with the Oakland Raiders. Khalil Mack has developed into a dominant pass-rushing force since the Oakland Raiders used the fifth overall pick on him in the 2014 draft, but they weren't able to reach a new deal with him and reportedly traded him to the Chicago Bears on Saturday. 

 

Rumors heated up that Mack could be on the move after Rams defensice tackle Aaron Donald signed his new record-setting contract. With the Raiders hesitant to match Donald's deal with Mack, trading him became an option if they received the right offer.


The Bears defense already had the potential to be sneaky good this season under coordinator Vic Fangio. Chicago boasted an underrated back end led by corner Kyle Fuller and safety Eddie Jackson, a stout front with Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman and a very good linebacker corps with Danny Trevathan and sideline-to-sideline tackling maven in rookie Roquan Smith. The biggest question mark was who would rush the passer opposite Leonard Floyd. Well the answer looks to Mack.
