Khalil Mack is seeking a contract extension with the Raiders. He is a no-show to the Raiders off-season workouts for that reason.
Mack is slated to make 13.846 million under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. He is the market for a big payday with guarantees that match with top quarterbacks.
Mack is seeking guarantees of about 65 million, according to NFL Networks Steve Wyche.
“This is going to be a big contract, and all sides are trying to make everything work,” McKenzie said “It’s about the result. One thing I know is that we love Khalil Mack and we want to make him a Raider for life. We’ll get through all the other stuff. We understand the business part of it. Everybody is aware of everything, and nobody is surprised. Everything, on all sides, has been positive. I can’t stress that enough.” Quotes via Sam Wyche NFL Network.
McKenzie said Mack and new coach Jon Gruden have spoken and that everything is good between the defensive standout and the new coach, who has changed much of the roster this offseason.
Derek Carr didn’t receive his contract extension until June 22 last year — a week AFTER mandatory minicamps. And Gabe Jackson received his a week after that. So, I wouldn’t say it’s even a sure thing the Raiders get Mack’s deal done by minicamp this year which start on June 12. It wouldn’t be the end of the world to wait that long, but it would not be smart to let it drag out until then.
Mack has started every game since being drafted in 2014. In that time frame, mack has 40.5 sacks and nine forced fumbles. Mack is a 3-time pro-bowler and two-time first team all pro. He also won defensive player of the year in 2016.
