We’ve been going around in circles for weeks about Khalil Mack trade rumors, which require three things: 1) The Raiders’ willingness to move on from him, 2) An acceptable trade package worthy of the linebacker, and 3) Agreement on a new contract, which is why Mack is possibly on the block in the first place.
