Derek Carr talks Khalil Mack, looks ahead to 2018 season


"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear", Carr said Monday, per ESPN. "He got what he wanted and we know it's a part of the business". It's one of those sucky things that happened. It's one of those situations, it sucks we lost our friend, we lost our brother but you know we have games to win. "For 13 years I played against the Packers and beat them every year, so I whooped their ass, right?" Instead, Mack was shipped to Chicago and reportedly agreed to a six-year, $141 million contract extension with the NFC North team.

Oakland, which included a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fifth-rounder in the deal, received Chicago's first-round picks in the next two years along with a sixth-round selection in 2019 and a third-round pick in 2020. "The Bears made us an offer, two first-round draft choices and here we are today".

Carr said Raiders coach Jon Gruden discussed the move with the team. "I understand that", Gruden said, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

"It wasn't my goal to trade Khalil when we got here". But since bringing home the Lombardi Trophy in what seems like an eternity ago after the 2010 season, the Packers have suffered several gut-wrenching road playoff losses that have come during postseasons where the team seemed poised to make another championship run. One of the reasons I'm here is because of him", said Gruden, "Unfortunatley we had a standoff with the contract and we could not come to terms. The a year ago of my career I went up there and wasn't any good anymore and stole their money.

Perhaps that's why it was Peppers who - after he gave a much-talked-about inspirational pregame speech in the Green Bay locker room before his first game against the Bears as a Packer, in 2014 - expressed empathy for his old team after a 55-14 Green Bay victory. I want to be known as the best to play the game. That's the only thing left on our list that won't happen. "Based on our study there will be some projection on how we think he'll use his players and tailor the scheme, concepts to the way he's done it in the past".

Carr took a bit less to get Jackson done and keep the Raiders on schedule to extend Mack the following offseason. The Packers have ranked in the NFL's bottom 10 in pass defense each of the past two seasons, but have also made significant investments in defensive backs in recent drafts.

"It's going to sting with them", McKenzie said Saturday night, per NBC Sports Bay Area.
