|Oakland traded Khalil Mack to Chicago on Saturday Andrei Vasilevskiy Jersey , and the Bears promptly made Mack the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL. That’s something the Raiders weren’t going to do.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said today that the Raiders did make Mack an offer, but it was not even in the same ballpark as the enormous deal he signed with the Bears.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 believe we were anywhere close to where the Bears were,” Gruden said. “He got a great contract from the Bears. A great contract. You know, $90 million guaranteed is an astronomical number, it’s phenomenal for the players, great for him obviously. But that was something we could not do.”
Gruden didn’t think it was realistic to make Mack the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL after paying quarterback Derek Carr so much.
“You’ve got to field a 53-man roster and there are some implications of having two players making that much,” Gruden said.
Gruden said getting the Bears’ 2019 and 2020 first-round draft picks could be huge for the Raiders in the future.
“Two first-round draft choices is a lot of compensation that we have to do something with Wayne Simmonds Jersey ,” Gruden said.
If Gruden doesn’t do something with those picks, his trade will be second-guessed forever.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari avoided a serious injury after being carted off the field at practice during the weekend.
Bakhtiari was hurt during the Family Night practice on Saturday at Lambeau Field. He walked to a cart with his left shoe removed before being driven back to the locker room.
Bakhtiari twisted his ankle while retreating in pass protection. He likened it to a “typical basketball” injury.
“It was weird,” Bakhtiari said Monday, when the Packers returned to practice following a day off. “It didn’t really feel bad, just kind of putting some weight into it and it just told me no. That was kind of (why) I was worried, but it should be all right.”
Coach Mike McCarthy said Bakhtiari’s injury was “not of the long-term nature.” Bakhtiari will be evaluated as he goes through rehab.
“Obviously William Nylander Jersey , you don’t want to get hurt but, thankfully, nothing catastrophic, nothing that is going to derail anything moving forward,” Bakhtiari said.
Good thing for the Packers, because he is one of their most important players given his role as quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ reliable blind-side protector. He has been voted a second-team All-Pro each of the past two seasons.
Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga just returned to practice on a limited basis following a right ACL injury that knocked him out at midseason last year.
Without those two, Kyle Murphy probably will start at left tackle and Jason Spriggs likely will start at right tackle for Thursday’s first preseason game http://www.officialpredators.com/authentic-adidas-ryan-hartman-jersey , at home against Tennessee. Murphy started three games last season before a foot injury ended his season. Two of those came at left tackle.
Green Bay placed inside linebacker Jake Ryan on injured reserve on Monday, likely ending his season. One of the team’s best run-stoppers suffered a significant right knee injury in practice last week.
In that same practice, safety Kentrell Brice also was driven off the field on a cart, having re-injured the right ankle that required season-ending surgery last year. Brice, who had been taking first-team reps in the secondary, took part in some individual drills on Monday.
“It wasn’t broken, so it was a positive outlook Womens Alexander Steen Jersey ,” Brice said. “Once they told me it wasn’t fractured or broken, I just started walking on it. I figured sprain, bruise, something like that. I’ll be all right.”
