Bears reach agreement to trade for Khalil Mack

The Raiders and Bears have an agreement in place to trade pass-rusher Khalil Mack to Chicago, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The sides are still working on the deal, sources said.

Over the past 48 hours, the Raiders engaged in active trade talks with multiple teams — including the New York Jets, a source told ESPN’s Rich Cimini. The Raiders were asking for two first-round picks. Other teams made enticing offers of multiple picks, but the Bears were willing to offer the most, sources told Schefter.

Mack, the No. 5 overall pick of the 2014 draft, missed training camp. He also stayed away from the Raiders’ voluntary offseason training program and held out of the team’s mandatory three-day minicamp in June. Raiders coach Jon Gruden, hired in January, had yet to meet Mack.

Oakland exercised the fifth-year option on Mack’s contract last summer, worth $13.846 million. If he had played under those terms this season, the Raiders could have used a franchise tag on Mack in 2019, barring an impasse.
