Breaking news this Saturday morning as reports are flying around left and right claiming that the framework of a trade has been agreed upon that would send star defensive end Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders into the NFC North Division to the Chicago Bears!
Sources to ESPN: Raiders and Bears have an agreement in place to trade Khalil Mack to Chicago. Still working through it, but Raiders now planning to send Mack to Chicago.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 1, 2018
Sounds like the Bears had to give up a haul to get Mack, no surprise, that might include two first round draft picks and more. Everybody is still sorting that part of it out, but it's for sure two first round picks.
Over last 48 hours, Raiders engaged in active trade talks with multiple teams. They asked for two first-round picks. Other teams made enticing, big-time offers of multiple picks. Chicago was willing to offer most, whatever compensation turns out to be in the end. It will be rich.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 1, 2018
From here, we'll see what sort of move this forces the Vikings to make to counteract the Bears bringing in an elite pass rusher.
