Khalil Mack Trade Odds ‘Increasing Every Day,’ Says NFC Executive

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Would you trade Ziggy Ansah and next year's first-round pick for the three-time Pro Bowler? Remember, Cooper shares an agent with Mack, so we should probably be prepared for another offseason merry-go-round in 2019.

On Wednesday afternoon, Gary & Larry asked 49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco if the Niners would be interested in trading for Mack, assuming the Raiders put him on the block.

Oakland knows Mack wants insane money, and they simply don't value him that highly.

The Packers would seem to have the resources necessary to land an elite player like Mack. Yes, acquiring Khalil Mack would make the Packers a championship caliber defense. I think he's not only their best defensive player, I think he's their best player period. Gutekunst acquired an extra first-round pick in next year's draft, and the Packers have tens of millions coming off the salary cap next offseason. Because Mack is on the past year of his rookie deal, it removes some of Oakland's bargaining power. Maiocco said not only should they be, but that they should be reaching out to Oakland now to see what he'd cost.


Let me be clear, nothing in the National Football League is guaranteed, however, there have been years during the Packers playoff runs where it seemed as if the team was lacking one major piece that would have gotten them over the mountaintop. They can't realistically expect to get one player or draft pick that can provide them equal value for Mack.

"I don't see why not, he would be flawless", Maiocco said of Mack. On the field, new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine might see a big need at edge rusher, based on the health status of Clay Matthews and Nick Perry and the development of Kyler Fackrell, Vince Biegel, Reggie Gilbert, Chris Odom and Kendall Donnerson.

Taking off from an idea floated by Paul Gutierrez of ESPN, which said that Mack is a potential preseason trade candidate, Zach Kruse of USA TODAY made some points about how the Green Bay Packers checks the boxes of a team that can be a potential destination for the defensive end via a trade.
