NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Saturday morning that the Oakland Raiders traded their star defensive end to the Chicago Bears for two first-round draft picks and possibly more. Here are the last 10 players the Raiders signed instead of Khalil Mack.

Jon Gruden will be getting the blame, or in an unlikely scenario the credit, for trading Khalil Mack away.

After sending out his profane tweet, the Raiders pass-rusher sent out another tweet, letting everyone know he's ready to move from the shocking news of the trade. Mack has been a holdout throughout training camp and has racked up the fines while not reporting.

National Football League insider Ian Rapoport reported the news on Saturday afternoon, confirming that the Bears had been given permission to begin negotiating a deal with Mack on Friday while the finer points of the trade were finalised by the two teams. Not only is Mack only 27-years old, but he is under contract for this season, and can be franchised for the next two. Mornings like this, but we have a season to play and games to win!
