There hasn’t been much news on the Khalil Mack contract front lately, but this morning former Raiders executive and Browns general manager Michael Lombardi tweeted out a contract figure that Mack is supposedly aiming for:
With K Mack wanting more than 20 million per year (sources tell me he actually wants 22) a deal with the trading team must happen first–going to be costly on both ends, trade and contract.— Michael Lombardi (@mlombardiNFL) August 10, 2018
Well, that’s a lot of money! Lombardi seems to imply that a trade is a possibility, though it would be tough sledding for any team to get a deal done. Not only would the compensation be incredibly steep to get a player of Mack’s caliber, but the team would also have to come to terms with Mack himself on an extension.
