Khalil Mack reportedly dealt to the Bears

Gruden seems to be running the team with a very, very old school approach and not a player-friendly one.

The Raiders are stuck with Gruden, as he hasn't even coached the first regular season game of a 10-year contract.

According to ESPN, the two sides are still working on a deal, but it is fully expected to go through.

All-Pro defensive lineman and preseason holdout Khalil Mack has been dealt to the Chicago Bears for a pair of first round draft picks and, reportedly more.

Mack's deal includes a $90 million guaranteed with $60 million at signing.

Perhaps this is, at least in part, an economic decision by the Raiders, as some have speculated. They are transitioning their team to Las Vegas in less than a year's time, and now they're not going to have their superstar defensive player going with them. "Chicago got a phenomenal player - they're developing quite a front".

5 things to watch out in this weekend's Premier League fixture
No one could quite believe what they were seeing, with Gary Neville one of the first high-profile names to react to the incident. The 25-year-old captained United in their first two games this season, and scored from the penalty spot in both.

Stafford finished sixth in the National Football League in passer rating previous year, while Rodgers was eighth and Cousins 12.

Fifth overall by the Raiders in 2014. Gruden and the Raiders might try to spin it otherwise. He has 1 sack against us and that was in his rookie season. If that's the case, Mack is in for a big payday. The trade included Chicago surrendering two first-round draft picks for the three-time Pro Bowler. He has 40.5 sacks in his career. The circumstances were almost identical to those of the Rams and Donald.

Mack was the Raiders' version of Von Miller, J.J. Watt, or Aaron Donald.

The thing is, the Raiders had to have known Mack's contract extension was coming. If the Bears collapse, then the Raiders' chance of hitting on them increases greatly. However, the Bears and their fans should be feeling like they just got a Honda price for a Mercedes-Benz.

The Packers, Vikings and Lions have to be concerned about this budding giant of a team now. Cousins will make $26 million, eighth-most, while Stafford will pocket $16.5 million. A dominant defense helps ease second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky and his offensive talent. But would that have been enough?

To assess this, I first looked at where a team like the Bears might be picking. The trade for Mack changes everything.
