Chicago Bears

Khalil Mack Traded… To The Scumbag Bears

Khalil Mack will be playing in the NFC North. For the scumbag Chicago Bears.

The Bears are giving up two first-round picks for the former Defensive Player of the Year. They are also going to make Mack the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

And here’s the deal.

As for the Green Bay Packers, they were one of the teams in on Mack. It appears the others were the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. The Packers really didn’t have the ammunition to make this happen, considering that the Bears have higher draft picks due to their suck-ass nature.

And make no mistake, two high first-round picks and a player is a hefty price to pay for anyone. Throw in this contract and it’s an even heftier price to pay.

Mack does indeed become the highest-paid defensive player in the game,  besting the six-year, $135 million deal the Rams just gave to Aaron Donald. That deal included $87 million guaranteed. Mack gets $90 million guaranteed.

All this being said, Mack is a game-changer on the defensive side of the ball. The Bears had a good defense last year, Mack could make them a great defense. The Bears’ offense? Well, who knows about that? Mitch Trubisky, people…

What we do know is the NFC North now looks pretty competitive. Or at least more so.

The Vikings still have arguably the best defense in the league and they’ve added Kirk Cousins. The Bears may now challenge the Vikings for the best defense in the league. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers returning and a beefed-up secondary. The Lions, well… they’ll probably still be the Lions.

The Packers now better hope their tackles hold up this season.

Fans should be happy that Brian Gutekunst went after this at all. Ted Thompson never would have.

    First thing that came out of my mouth when I saw an article on this was a big ol’ F bomb. It is the Bears but the NFC North is more competitive because of it. The rest of the division is slowly catching up and the Packers can’t continue to expect Rodgers to do everything.

    The Packers have failed miserably to complement our offense. The Vikes, under Spielman and Zimmer have done it in five years! Packers not since 2010. If the Packers dont take care of the Bears and Vikes the first two games MM must be fired. Rodgers has carried this team too long to benefit excuse ridden and non creative MM. You’ll visually be able to see our new offensive playbook, and the lack of MM and GM’s to build a good defensive unit. Fact.

    I, like most of you, was really hoping we’d pull the trigger on Mack. Even played armchair GM with salary cap number and trade assets, dreaming how we could make it work.

    When Aaron Donald got his offer yesterday, I knew that was going to be the nail in the coffin. There’s no way Green Bay could top that offer, which Mack is going to command.

    The thing that sucks the most, is that instead of losing out on him to the Jets or the Bills, now we’ll have to face him twice a year – and knowing our (lack of) O-Line depth, that’s going be a major problem.

    I still don’t think the Bears are a contender by any means, but their definitely shaping themselves up to play spoilers.

    Mack’s contract says he will get 2 weeks vacation starting mi d January and the packers could not do this. So he signed with the Bears

    Benefits:

    1.) Bears have mortgaged their future in terms of draft picks for the next 2 years. That is a HUGE blow
    2.) Bears take the cap hit, not the Packers
    3.) Mack doesn’t know the Bears’ defense yet & may not be a real factor by September 9
    4.) Mack will also be trying to chase Stafford & Cousins too
    5.) The Packers still have 2 first rounder next season which carry those 5th year options
    6.) Mack is 27, rookies are cheaper & typically 22
    7.) Mack will have vacations in January ;)
