With the recent trade of Khalil Mack, everyone seems to be down on the Raiders in 2018. His 40.5 sacks through his first four years are the third-most by a player over that stretch in Raiders' history and fifth-most all-time. I don't blame Gurley, or any running back, for not wanting to absorb a tackle from the University of Buffalo great. Alongside Mack will be former Georgia stars Roquan Smith and Leonard Floyd, also Kentucky Wildcat Danny Trevathan. We get paid to come in here, come together as a team, and win together.
"It wasn't my goal to trade Khalil when we got here". And I'll just say what (Reggie) said - I read what he said yesterday - it's a decision that we all came to. Chicago had no qualms about paying him, making him the highest-paid defensive player in National Football League history with a six-year, $141 million contract extension (with $90 million guaranteed). He sounded like a general manager who didn't want to trade the best draft pick he's made in his career.
"When we showed up here, we wanted to change the culture and show people what it meant to work, and I think we did that", Carr said.

He's also got a great assortment of mugs and family photos - including a framed portrait of Princess Diana on his desk. A series of old photos from Prince Harry's days at Eton College is doing rounds on the Internet, yet again.
"I'm anxious to hear this one, Jon Gruden and Khalil Mack talking about the trade", McDonough said. "It's hard because we lost him, but I can promise you we're going to be ready to play". "I feel good about that". I don't believe we were anywhere close to where the Bears were.
Perhaps that's why it was Peppers who - after he gave a much-talked-about inspirational pregame speech in the Green Bay locker room before his first game against the Bears as a Packer, in 2014 - expressed empathy for his old team after a 55-14 Green Bay victory. "Based on our study there will be some projection on how we think he'll use his players and tailor the scheme, concepts to the way he's done it in the past". That's the only thing left on our list that won't happen. The Green Bay Packers will kick off their 2018 campaign on Sunday, Sept. 9 against the Chicago Bears, in what will be the beginningof the team's 100th season of existence.
Did the Raiders make the right move? New head coach Matt Nagy, a proud descendant of the Andy Reid coaching tree, figures to find innovative ways to use all of them, as well as pint-sized running back Tarik Cohen.
Then-Packers coach Mike Holmgren made McMichael the defensive captain for both games against the Bears that season, including the Monday Night Football monsoon game on Halloween.
