Ryan Pace inquires abut Kahlil Mack
After an entire off-season with no communication with their star defensive player, the Raiders decide it’s time to move on from Khalil Mack. Ryan Pace, always one to do his due diligence, picks up the phone and talks to Jon Gruden about making an offer for Mack.
Gruden is adamant that he wants the Bears first round picks in 2019 and 2020. Pace is in a pickle because he already doesn’t have his second round pick next season and he just missed out on his second and third round pick in this past draft.
Now the Bears would be out two first round picks? With so many questions surrounding the team offensively, Pace decides that he can’t pony up two first round picks for Mack and he passes.
Much to Pace’s chagrin, somehow the Green Bay Packers make room under the salary cap and trade for Mack and sign him to an extension. Pace was able to keep Vic Fangio and Kyle Fuller from Green Bay’s grubby mitts earlier in the off-season, but the Packers got the best of him later in the offseason landing both Allen Robinson and Khalil Mack.
