Khalil Mack delivered 10½ sacks last year and has played every game the last four seasons. He’s good and he’s healthy, two boxes the Bears regularly fail to check. No matter. The Raiders have taken calls from several interested teams and reportedly have heard several offers.

Las Vegas was in desperate need of a pass rusher this offseason. The Raiders recorded just 21 sacks last season. Mack alone had nine sacks and three forced fumbles in 2020.

After failing to land Mack, the Raiders signed defensive end Yannick Ngakoue to a two-year deal.

Ngakoue spent the 2020 season split between the Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens. He had eight sacks, four forced fumbles, 23 tackles, seven tackles for a loss and 11 quarterback hits.

Because of their cap situation, the Bears cut Pro Bowl cornerback Kyle Fuller this offseason and restructured several contracts, including Mack's.

Mack will face his former team in October as the Raiders host the Bears in Week 5.

The 2016 NFL defensive player of the year now will wear navy and orange.

When the Bears traded Saturday for Raiders star edge rusher Khalil Mack , they kicked open the window for playoff contention and, they hope, returned a once-proud franchise to relevance.
