NFL Insider Has New Update On Possible Khalil Mack Trade

Khalil Mack speaks to Trevor Siemian.

Khalil Mack trade rumors continue to hit the web, and will do so until the Oakland Raiders can find a way to lock him up.

Mack, 27-year old superstar edge rusher, is one of the best defensive players in the NFL. If there's any chance of him becoming available, teams are obviously going to listen.

Publicly, the Raiders maintain that they don't plan to move Mack. However, there doesn't seem to be much movement between Mack's team and the Raiders towards a new deal.

With the season fast-approaching, there is a chance that his holdout could last into the regular season.

As he remains unsigned, we've gotten more and more details about a potential Khalil Mack trade.

On Wednesday night, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that the asking price is two first-round picks, but that the team is not "motivated" to trade Mack as of now.

According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, at least three NFL teams have now made "strong inquiries" about a trade.

It is unclear who those teams are, but we've heard rumors about a few franchises. Earlier this summer, Daily Newswriter Manish Mehta said that at least a dozen teams have inquired about Mack. He said that the Jets is among them, and pushed hard for the New York team to make a move.

The Packers have two first-rounders and are a contender that could use a guy like Mack. With Aaron Rodgers' new monster deal, it is unclear how feasible a trade for Mack, and then a big new contract for him, is right now.

Earlier this week, Pete Carroll freaked people out by posting the video for Mark Morrison's "Return of the Mack" on Twitter. It is probably nothing, but he should know what he's doing.

Wherever Mack plays his next snap, that defense will be better for it.
