Without Mack, the Raiders would fall even further down the league's bottom-third of defenses.

If you take a look around the internet, you will see that there are really no experts out there who expect the Oakland Raiders to be any good this season. Remember, Cooper shares an agent with Mack, so we should probably be prepared for another offseason merry-go-round in 2019.

If the tension between the two sides gets worse, is it possible Mack could be playing for a different team in 2018?

"I don't see why not, he would be ideal", Maiocco said of Mack.

The Rams' offseason started off with a bang, as they traded for Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the top ball-hawking cornerbacks in the game today. At 6-3, 252 pounds, Mack can play both outside linebacker and defensive end.
