Mike Zimmer 'wished' Khalil Mack hadn't gone to Chicago

How Khalil Mack trade to Bears impacts the Lions

"That's gonna be just communication between him, myself, (defensive coordinator) Vic (Fangio) and our trainers on a day-to-day basis". "One of the reasons I'm here is because of him".

"Those 10 picks are looking a little bit more promising", cornerback Prince Amukamara said.

What followed after that were billboards of Mack placed through Chicago by the Bears, jerseys already on sale in stores and online and, eventually, turning the page to the Packers and the regular-season opener at Lambeau Field on Sunday night. But the spirit of his comment has validity. "Bottom line is, we did do our due diligence, there was a standoff and he got a great contract from the Bears".

As for what led to this point, Kennedy said the disagreement that led to the months-long standoff between Mack and the Raiders was about a $3 million per-year difference in his valuation. Once we showed up and got to work, Coach addressed it with the team, said what he said, invited anyone who needed to talk to him, open door. "Even with guys in the middle like Akiem and [Leonard] Floyd on the outside, we're still excited about that". You can call Mack an outside linebacker. Which team will make the biggest jump from last season?

"I know there's maybe some feeling that maybe I was involved in a day-to-day negotiation. It's nice to have such a prolific rusher outside me", Hicks said. "If he's on my side, another side - wherever he is - he just makes everybody's job easier just because he's such a threat".

"Our right tackle, (on Mack's) second play, turned around and gave me the eyes when he rushed him", Nagy said.

But before Chicago can be crowned as this year's shocking turnaround team, they have to convert transactions into wins. If he does, Mack could be the piece that gets them over the hump. "I thought the deal was going to get done".

The Bears overhauled their coaching staff in the offseason, letting John Fox go and hiring former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, whose team from a personnel standpoint has been completely renovated. Monday at Halas Hall was the first time he's practiced since the end of the 2017 season. "Pretty good", Nagy said. Sure, there's no guarantee the first-round picks will turn into good players.

Unprompted, he interrupted the next question at his press conference to elaborate. Mack's contract set a record for defensive players.

"We won't be able to win a ring together".

"To just let him slip through your fingertips, it's sad".

"We know time is of the essence".

Even though Mack isn't yet ready to go full speed for an entire practice, he was good enough on Monday to get a reaction from ORT Bobby Massie. This summer, he was trotted out as the starter alongside Reggie Nelson at the two safety spots, but it nearly came a shock when he was listed ahead of Erik Harris on the Raiders depth chart release on Tuesday.

"So we'll see how it goes".
