Raiders players were stunned by Mack trade

Over the weekend, the Chicago Bears sent shockwaves throughout the entire National Football League after acquiring former Oakland Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack. "And we know it's a part of the business".

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear". The hardest part for me is, obviously, you lose a good football player, but he's my brother, man. Giving up multiple first-round picks to land a player of Mack's caliber certainly got people talking, but the majority of folks agree: This was a move that will have an enormous impact on many teams, not just the Bears. Across the state of Florida that season, the Buccaneers went 12-4 and won the Super Bowl in part because of the trade two years earlier with the Jets in which they acquired Keyshawn Johnson, who became their leading receiver. The Raiders were in no mood to pay such money to their 2014 first-round draft pick (fifth overall), who is a generational talent, and the result was a shocking trade to the Chicago Bears after days of talks with other teams.

Shortly after the trade, Mack signed the richest deal ever given to a defensive player: six years, $141 million, with $90 million guaranteed. That includes one-time Jaguars star Allen Robinson, who had a disappointing 2016 before missing all of 2017 with a torn ACL; 2015 No. 7 pick Kevin White, who might finally be healthy for the first time in his career; and speedster Anthony Miller, who the Bears selected in the second round of this past spring's draft.

While Carr was quick to note that the culture change should not exclusively be attributed to him and Mack, at the end of the day, the reality is that many aspects of the team's cultural shifts occurred as a direct result of that very pair. In the interim, there's fallout that had to be dealt with, and Gruden spoke Monday with his players.

"I was lucky enough to play for two great organizations", Bennett said previous year. "It wasn't my goal to trade Khalil when we got here", he confessed. We get paid to come in here, come together as a team, and win together.

If any new rookie is going to get a lot of playing time, it's going to be Alexander, whose size and speed make him a natural fit to play as the team's slot nickel corner. "I feel good about that". "We did change the dynamic of how things are done from the people in the locker room".
