This afternoon the Oakland Raiders decided to trade star defensive player Khalil Mack to the Bears because they didn’t want to pay him.

Bears get: Khalil Mack, a 2020 second-round round pick and a conditional 2020 fifth-round pick.
Raiders get: 2019 first-round pick, 2020 first-round pick, 2020 third-round pick, 2019 sixth-round pick.
So Bears get back second-round pick, too
The Bears went on to make Mack one of the highest paid players in the league.
The #Bears and star pass-rusher Khalil Mack have agreed to terms on a massive 6-year, $141M contract extension, source said. Total value: $155M over 7. $90M guaranteed. $60M fully guaranteed at signing. $23.5M new money average
The trade was quickly panned by NFL journalists who mocked Jon Gruden for the move.
The trade was so bad that someone attempted it on Madden and it got rejected.
