Date:'s Ian Rapoport reports contract-year DE Khalil Mack is expected to skip this week's mandatory minicamp.

Mack is officially risking fines as he seeks a new deal. It's well worth the risk for a player of Mack's stature, who, one way or the other, is going to get a massive contract sooner or later. There is little reason for him to risk his health in meaningless June practices. A new deal before Week 1 should be the goal for all involved.

Khalil Mack skipped the start of Raiders' voluntary OTAs on Tuesday.

Mack has skipped the Raiders' entire offseason program as he angles for a new contract. 2018 is the final year of his rookie deal. It's possible Mack even skips mandatory minicamp, but he would then be at risk of fines. A new contract should get done before Week 1. Unless you're the Redskins with Kirk Cousins, teams don't mess around with franchise-type talents like Mack.

Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area believes Raiders OLB Khalil Mack's new deal could be in the range of $120 million over six years.

That would surpass the current high water mark for defensive players set by Von Miller in 2016. NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported last week that Mack was seeking $65 million guaranteed in extension talks with Oakland. The 2016 Defensive Player of the Year is set to earn $13.86 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said extension talks with Khalil Mack have been "positive."

Not positive enough for Mack to show up for voluntary workouts, but the general manager is not concerned. "This is going to be a big contract and all sides are trying to make everything work," McKenzie said. "Everybody is aware of everything and nobody is surprised. Everything, on all sides has been positive. I can't stress that enough." Mack is reportedly looking for "in excess" of $65 million guaranteed in his new deal.
Apr 12 - 9:26 AM reports contract-year OLB Khalil Mack is seeking "in excess" of $65 million guaranteed in his new contract.

That would put Mack just short of Von Miller's record of $70 million for a defensive player. We would assume Mack will start out hoping to surpass that. Currently slated to make $13.846 million in the final year of his rookie contract, Mack is skipping the voluntary start of the Raiders' offseason program.
Apr 10 - 6:55 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Khalil Mack did not report for the opening day of the Raiders' offseason program.

It is certainly possible this is much ado about nothing, but it notable with Mack entering the final year of his rookie deal. The two sides have reportedly engaged in extension talks, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken reports they were not close in early discussions. Mack is currently scheduled to earn $13.846 million in 2018.
Apr 9 - 12:08 PM

The Athletic's Vic Tafur reports the Raiders have engaged in extension talks with contract-year OLB Khalil Mack.

Oakland has extended an offer that Mack's camp is currently reviewing. Mack is signed for $13.846 million in 2018, and the Raiders can lower that cap hit by working out an extension. Of course, Mack isn't going to be leaving the Raiders anytime soon after starting all 64 games in his four years, racking up 40.5 sacks and making two first-team All-Pro squads. Mack will likely be seeking $20 million per year on a new deal. Von Miller is the highest-paid EDGE at $19.08 million.

Raiders OLB Khalil Mack is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report.

Mack sat out Wednesday's practice, but he was out there on Thursday and Friday. He will try to be a thorn in Marcus Mariota's side on Opening Day.

Raiders OLB Khalil Mack (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.

It looks like Mack was just getting a maintenance day on Wednesday. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year will be all systems go for Sunday's opener at Tennessee.

Raiders OLB Khalil Mack (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He stretched with the team but sat out the rest of practice. This is the first we're hearing of Mack's knee injury and it's possible the team was just giving him a breather ahead of Sunday's opener at Tennessee. We'll see how the reigning Defensive Player of the Year progresses throughout the week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Raiders OLB Khalil Mack's contract will not be extended this year.

Per Schefter, the Raiders couldn't fit a new Mack deal under the cap after extending Derek Carr and RG Gabe Jackson over the past week. Mack is under team control for two more years, and essentially three since the Raiders can franchise tag him in 2019. Nevertheless, it's usually a matter of "the sooner, the better" with these sorts of mega-deals. Coming off another monster season, Mack is headed into his age-26 campaign.
Thu, Jun 29, 2017 07:32:00 PM

Raiders exercised OLB Khalil Mack's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The perfunctory move keeps Mack under contract for the next two years and buys time in long-term talks. GM Reggie McKenzie has already admitted the obvious that he wants to extend Mack, but with Derek Carr and OG Gabe Jackson's rookie contracts both expiring next offseason, they figure to be the priorities.

Associated Press named Raiders DE Khalil Mack its 2016 Defensive Player of the Year.

Mack edged out Von Miller, Landon Collins, and Rams DT Aaron Donald. He had another All Pro season with 73 tackles, 11 sacks, and five forced fumbles. Mack led the NFL with 96 total pressures, grading out as PFF’s top ranked edge-rusher. It’s the first time since 2013 that J.J. Watt hasn’t won the award. Entering his age-26 season, Mack is under team control for the next two years but the Raiders want to extend him. Mack could become one of the highest paid players in the league this offseason.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said he wants to extend DE Khalil Mack.

Mack is under team control for the next two years (2018 option). There's no rush to get a deal done, but Oakland has $46.6 million in cap space to lock him up this offseason. A two-time All Pro, Mack is going to push Von Miller for the top pass rusher salary in the league.
