The Oakland Raiders traded away their best player on Saturday, sending Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears. Here are his five best performances as a Raider.
The Oakland Raiders selected Khalil Mack with the fifth overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, and since then, he has established himself as one of the best players in the NFL. The best player on the Raiders, Mack will not be playing for the Silver and Black in 2018, as he was traded to the Chicago Bears on Saturday.
Losing Mack is a hard thing for Raiders fans, as he has been a star for a team that has struggled to win during his time in the organization. The 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Mack has been to the Pro Bowl over the last three seasons, and at only 27-years old, is in the middle of his prime.
It was a very confusing Saturday for Raider Nation, as Mack is under contract for 2018, and can be franchised tagged for the next two seasons. With the team moving to Las Vegas in 2020, the thought was Mack would be a cornerstone player as they enter this new phase of the franchise, but he will now play in the Windy City, not Sin City.
As we attempt to turn the page on Mack’s career with Oakland, let us take a look at his five best performances wearing a Raiders uniform.
