Report: Raiders extend contract offer to Khalil Mack
The Oakland Raiders locked up a key member of their 2014 draft class in signing Derek Carr to an extension last June. Now they’re taking steps toward getting their top pick from the class signed for the foreseeable future.
Von Miller’s contract extension in the summer of 2016 with the Denver Broncos could serve as a baseline for negotiations regarding Mack. It remains the richest contract for a defensive player in league history and contained $70 million in total guarantees over the first three years of the deal. Mack has posted similar numbers as his AFC West compatriot and was a first-team All-Pro alongside Miller in 2015 and 2016.
It will be an important contract for both sides, which means that it probably won’t happen quickly. But at least the gears are in motion.
His representation is looking at it and, of course, we’re looking at it through a different lens. We’re always mindful that we’re aware of everything else. But like I said before, from an analytical standpoint and a statistical standpoint and a financial standpoint, we know that it ultimately comes back to what we’re doing with this organization and what we deem as a win-win for both parties.”
Reid responded to a report that the trade came as a result of an order from owner Clark Hunt to get Peters off the roster by calling it off base.
So what to do to really empower our fans? Fans are investors. They invest time and emotion and money … and what they get in return is the thrill of victory and agony of defeat. We wanted to empower the fans so they will be rewarded for being fans of their team, so fans have a real stake in the league.
How will they do so?
Ebersol mysteriously says to stay tuned.
