Khalil Mack trade leads to stunning shift in Super Bowl odds

The Bears were one of the top four potential landing spots for Mack early in the week, with Green Bay the frontrunner with two 2019 first round draft picks at their disposal.

The Chicago Bears have agreed to acquire Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders.

Chicago will negotiate a long-term deal with Mack that is expected to trump the contract Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald just received (six year extension for $135 million).

304 tackles, 40½ sacks, 11 passes defended, one interception (returned for a touchdown), nine forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries.

The Raiders also placed defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes on the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a torn ACL in last season's finale.

McKenzie revealed that wanting a high first-round pick factored into their decision to pick the Bears' offer when more than half the league inquired about Mack.

His seeming indifference contrasts with that of his more media-chiselled peers, gaining him a sizable following as a result. Ferrari has been good off the line this year so Raikkonen and Vettel will feel confident of keeping Hamilton behind them.

Xbox to Launch Subscription with Console, Xbox Live and Game Pass
You may remember the Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle , which cost $99 but required a $15 per month subscription for two years. It is interesting that this is a Microsoft special but is being financed through a Dell Preferred Account .

They do still have the cap room to add a player like that, though.

The 2016 defensive player of the year (which should have been Von Miller, but whatever), is no longer the Broncos' problem.

To make matters worse, the Raiders handed Mack over to a team that appears to be on the rise. Chicago is all in on Mack. That's fine. But you make exceptions in today's National Football League for guys like Khalil Mack, who has never missed a game and has destroyed the competition he's faced for four straight years.

Not only does the addition of Mack make the Bears better simply by his presence alone, but Mack will instantly make the players around him so much better too, especially Floyd.

The Bears fired coach John Fox after a five-win season and 14-34 record in his three years. We don't yet know if Key will be playing on Mack's side, but that looks like the guy who Schwartz will be facing twice when the Chiefs play the Raiders this season. Previous year he was the only defensive player in the league to tally at least 75 tackles, 10 sacks, five passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. When it seemed like it was going that way, we decided to make a move with the trade. If he is great, and the Bears become a better team, those picks are going to be less likely to hit.
