2. Khalil Mack squares off against his old squad on October 6
Khalil Mack has something on his mind.
We don’t know for certain what the eyeballs emoji was for, but most likely that was when Mack found out when he will be squaring off against his old team.
The Chicago Bears travel to London for a “road” game against the Oakland Raiders. The game will be held at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and you can imagine that Mack will have that one circled for the next several months.
There’s no secret that Mack wasn’t too pleased with how Jon Gruden handled negotiating a long-term deal with Mack in which the negotiation was to not have one. Gruden and Mack’s camp basically didn’t talk the entire offseason as Mack held out and refused to sign his franchise tender in hopes of landing a multiyear contract.
As we know, that didn’t happen and two first round picks later, Mack was a Bear.
Mack is going to want to shove it up Gruden’s you-know-what and he’ll be trying to do it across the pond. Seeing Mack with fire in his eyes will be something that no Bears’ fan will want to miss.
