Khalil Mack: Ready to Play For the Chicago Bears - ESPN 98.1 FM

According to McCarthy, the historical data suggests teams will show unscouted looks upwards of 30 percent of the time in the first quarter of the season.

McMichael said he signed with the Packers because Brett Favre and Reggie White were there, and it was "a chance to play with some legends". I believe that 100 per cent. "People are trying to divide us: 'I wanted him gone, he wanted him here.' We made a decision as an organization". A unit that had plenty of good pieces was missing a star pass rusher, and that's what the 27-year-old Mack is, with plenty left in his prime.

The Chicago Bears made the big splash move over the weekend with the acquisition of All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders, who gave Carr a contract that pays him $25 million annually last summer, weren't willing to give him that, so they traded him to the Bears in exchange for two first-round picks (among other draft picks that were exchanged in the deal) and watched the Bears immediately hand Mack the record-breaking contract he desired. Oakland also claimed defensive tackle Brian Price off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced. The Raiders were positive that Mack would want to surpass those bank-breaking numbers, so they were forced to listen to offers.

"I'm anxious to hear this one, Jon Gruden and Khalil Mack talking about the trade", McDonough said. We don't get paid for that. "He understood that a lot of us were close with him". Besides Mack, Chicago gets a second-round pick and a conditional fifth-rounder in 2020.

Still to come for Furyk is his final captain's pick, to be announced Monday after the BMW Championship. Unlike the relatively simple task for Furyk, Bjorn has many more hard decisions to make by Wednesday.

"We only have the offseason study to go off of when (Nagy) was in Kansas City and the relationship there", McCarthy said. Nagy brought in former OR head coach Mark Helfrich, so it's reasonable to assume the Bears will place an even greater emphasis on zone read and run-pass option concepts into his offense.

Well, while Mack is now a member of the Chicago Bears, and he and Carr are no longer teammates, the Silver and Black's franchise quarterback is happy with what he and Mack accomplished during their time together.

"Khalil is a true professional".

The Vikings will have to play the Bears twice, and it's bad news to an already beat-up offensive line. Each of those four young DBs has shown plenty of potential, but how they'll perform in the bright lights of Week 1's Sunday Night Football content remains a question-especially for the two rookies playing their first games as pros.
