Khalil Mack Holdout "Mystifying To Many In The Organization"

Lions Named As Potential Landing Spot For Raiders DE Khalil Mack

While it's hard to imagine the Raiders shipping one of the most dominant players in his position today - not to mention one who is only 27 - a team with enough resources and a spacious future cap space could come into play and coax Oakland into giving up the former fifth-pick overall.

Khalil Mack #52 of the Oakland Raiders scores after intercepting Cam Newton #1 of the Carolina Panthers in the second quarter of their National Football League game on November 27, 2016 in Oakland, California. While that seems farfetched, Gutierrez notes that Mack's holdout has been "mystifying" to Oakland's front office. Remember, Cooper shares an agent with Mack, so we should probably be prepared for another offseason merry-go-round in 2019.

First, it is important to highlight what the cost to acquire Khalil Mack would be if the Raiders were intent on trading him.

Despite all of that, Mack may be sent on his way by the Raiders.

Mack, a three-time Pro Bowler and one of the game's top pass rushers, is now holding out from Raiders camp while attempting to get a new deal.

They have dropped Dawid Malan though and brought in young Ollie Pope . It has been very hot in London for the last couple of months.

That's why, quite simply, they need to be looking for multiple high-value assets.

If Oakland doesn't play its cards right, Mack may be on his way out soon. Mike Pettine would be able to deploy Mack in multiple packages and feel confident that he will be the best player on the field and turn the Packers defense into a championship caliber unit.

But, apparently Mack wants even more than that. The Rams bolstered their roster big time this offseason, and a win against them would likely change the way the media sees this team moving forward. I think he's not only their best defensive player, I think he's their best player period.

For these reasons, I believe that the Packers should enter into serious negotiations with the Raiders if Mack is indeed on the trade block.

If both sides are willing to compromise in certain areas I could see the Packers spending one or both of their 2019 first round draft picks in a trade for Mack.
