The NFL preseason kicked off just over two weeks ago and while most of the talk is about the players on the field, there are two very significant players who have yet to report to camp. It turns out they both play on the defensive side of the ball.

Los Angeles Rams star Aaron Donald and Oakland Raiders sack-machine Khalil Mack have not reported to camp. Both are holding out in hopes of a larger contract.

Mack and the Raiders are reportedly not close on a deal. As a result, he's become a popular trade talk candidate.

In fact, one sports book has the odds set against Oakland reaching a deal with its star. Instead, the odds suggest Mack will be traded to an NFC team.

The odds suggest he'll become a member of he Green Bay Packers by the trade deadline. We'll have to wait and see, but a deal for Mack would be one of the largest deals in recent NFL history.

Stay tuned.
