Derek Carr: Raiders Over Shock Of Khalil Mack Trade

Gruden: We all Came to a Decision on Mack Together

Not only did Oakland trade Khalil Mack over the weekend, but this team is the oldest in years.

Quarterback Derek Carr, who heard the news while sitting down to eat breakfast, was stunned. "That's gonna be just communication between him, myself, (defensive coordinator) Vic (Fangio) and our trainers on a day-to-day basis". That's just what the recently retired No. 73 did about the Oakland Raiders, coach Jon Gruden and their handling of the Khalil Mack situation.

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear", Carr said Monday, per ESPN. The hardest part for me is, obviously, you lose a good football player, but he's my brother, man. His 40.5 sacks through his first four years are the third-most by a player over that stretch in Raiders' history and fifth-most all-time.

Shortly after the trade, Mack signed the richest deal ever given to a defensive player: six years, $141 million, with $90 million guaranteed. We also forget about the Lions and Matthew Stafford. "He got what he wanted and we know it's a part of the business".

"It's nice to have such a prolific rusher outside me", Hicks said. Once we showed up and got to work, Coach addressed it with the team, said what he said, invited anyone who needed to talk to him, open door. "You don't have to like it or agree with it, but we're paid to win games". Unfortunately, we had a standoff with the contract and we could not come to terms. "One of the reasons I'm here is because of him". He injured his hamstring on the first day of training camp, didn't play in any preseason games and has practiced mostly in a limited capacity until this week.

Indians acquire former MVP Josh Donaldson
Coincidentally, the Blue Jays and Indians face off during a four-game set at Rogers Centre beginning next Thursday, September 6th. Encarnacion told reporters after the Indians' 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday that Donaldson is a "great player".

Well, while Mack is now a member of the Chicago Bears, and he and Carr are no longer teammates, the Silver and Black's franchise quarterback is happy with what he and Mack accomplished during their time together. The past year of my career I went up there and wasn't any good anymore and stole their money. "The Bears made us an offer of two first-round draft choices and here we are today". "We've had one winning season in 14 years", he said. That's the only thing left on our list that won't happen.

The Khalil Mack news hit like an unexpected hurricane.

That was particularly hard for Carr.

That said, it doesn't make the former Raider's absence any less weird for the time being. "We all saw it coming". You start putting guys in to sub and do different things.

Arden Key, Oakland's third-round pick who is expected to get the majority of playing time in place of Mack, had been hopeful of learning from a player who compiled 40 1/2 sacks in his first four National Football League seasons. But despite the layoff, Mack said he's confident he'll be able to take on the Packers in a week. "It was very shocking". Whereas now, I've got a job to do.
