Jon Gruden Said He Cried For 3 Days After Trading Khalil Mack

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is seemingly always going to get asked about trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack before the beginning of last season. The superstar pass-rusher was traded to the Chicago Bears just before the start of the 2018 regular season began. The notion was that Jon Gruden didn’t want him. However that does not seem to be the case:

Mack and The Raiders had trouble negotiating a contract extension last off season. Mack wanted a huge extension and The Raiders were not ready to give him one. Mack ended up sitting out camp and the pre-season before the Bears stepped in and made a trade.

The Bears gave up a 2019 first-round pick, 2020 first-round pick, 2020 third-round pick and 2019 sixth-round pick for Mack.

Chicago also received a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2020 fifth-round pick in the deal. What followed for Mack was one of his best seasons since winning the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2016.
