Khalil Mack trade leads to stunning shift in Super Bowl odds

The long stand-off between Khalil Mack and the Oakland Raiders ended on Saturday morning with the Raiders blinking first and trading the 016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year to the Chicago Bears for a package of draft picks.

Pittsburgh could have packaged two first-round picks and linebacker Bud Dupree for Mack and matched something similar to what is being reported about the trade.

The previous bar was set Friday, when the Los Angeles Rams and defensive tackle Aaron Donald finalized a contract worth $135 million, with $87 million guaranteed.

Through his first four seasons, Mack has earned three Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro selections.

304 tackles, 40½ sacks, 11 passes defended, one interception (returned for a touchdown), nine forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries. If anything, last season proved to us that he is merely mortal and that his protection should be of the utmost importance if the Packers hope to have one more Superbowl run during the final years of his career.

Bears get Mack, a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2020 fifth-round pick. He was the league's defensive player of the year in 2016. Bryant was acquired in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers for a third-round draft pick this April. "What are the odds that Gruden will select two first-round players who can average 12.5 sacks per season between them like Mack has over the last three years?"

Still, it's surprising that the Raiders let Mack go.

To make matters worse, the Raiders handed Mack over to a team that appears to be on the rise.

What a wild Saturday it was for the Chicago Bears. They just made their biggest move. Not under an economic system in which a team can unilaterally extend a prized rookie's contract to five years and then utilize the franchise tag for a few seasons after that. Plenty of teams pay more than one player -- players who aren't almost as good as Mack, which is why it's so puzzling the Raiders moved on from him.

It's not a surprise the 49ers tried snagging the All-Pro defensive end. If the Bears are good, then the draft picks they sent to Oakland won't be worth almost as much.

This is one of the worst moves Gruden could have decided to make, and there's no way the guys in the front office were on the same page about this.
