  • Gruden: We all Came to a Decision on Mack Together

Two days after the Oakland Raiders shipped Pro Bowl defensive end Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears in a blockbuster deal that sent shock waves throughout the National Football League, many of Mack's former teammates were still trying to come to terms with it.

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear", Carr said Monday, two days after the Raiders packaged Mack, who had been holding out all offseason, a second-round draft pick in 2020 and a 2020 conditional fifth-rounder to Chicago for the Bears' first-round picks in 2019 and 2020, a sixth-rounder in 2019 and a third-rounder in 2020. "It's one of those sucky things that happen". Mack's contract set a record for defensive players. "I've got to see him out there on the field". 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.

Karl Joseph was drafted in the first round back in 2016, and the thought was he would be a guy that could man the middle of their secondary for years to come.

Rodgers signs record extension with the Packers
Rodgers, who will turn 35 in December, signed a five-year, $110 million extension before the 2013 season kicked off. The initial roster consists of 26 offensive players, 24 defensive players and three specialists.

Lynch has been injured for most of the Bears' team activities since April after signing a one-year contract that included a $1.25 million signing bonus and is worth up to $4 million. He and the Raiders were in the middle of a contract standoff that appeared to have no end in sight unless Oakland was willing to give the pass-rusher the hefty contract he desired. Mack is what the Bears needed to rise from being a top-10 defense to one of the NFL's best.

While Carr was quick to note that the culture change should not exclusively be attributed to him and Mack, at the end of the day, the reality is that many aspects of the team's cultural shifts occurred as a direct result of that very pair. "...'I wanted him gone, he wanted him here.' We made a decision as an organization".

Nagy said Mack is doing a really good job adjusting to a new team and process.

Liverpool vs Leicester City: Jurgen Klopp weighs in on Alisson gaffe
If Alisson would have cleared it with his first touch, everything would have been fine, but for some reason, he didn't. Manager Juergen Klopp said Alisson's mistake was "not cool" but he was happy that Liverpool still "ticked the box".

"I think, obviously, we had the day off that day and so that made it harder because I'm just sitting there thinking about it all day". Said Nagy: "I'm not going to sit here and say 100 percent because we haven't declared that yet". "We all knew. Gabe, Jelly, me, Khalil, we all saw it coming".

"We have a lot of holes, and we have to do what we can to fill them", he adds. But we have him if we need him. "Like you said we got close over this period of time".
