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

  • Joe Thomas sounds off against Jon Gruden and Raiders  Khalil Mack trade

Defensive tackle Justin Ellis called it a bittersweet moment.

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear". "But it is what it is - it's part of the business ..." "It's one of those sucky things that happen. It's hard because we lost him but I can promise you we are going to be ready to play". That includes one-time Jaguars star Allen Robinson, who had a disappointing 2016 before missing all of 2017 with a torn ACL; 2015 No. 7 pick Kevin White, who might finally be healthy for the first time in his career; and speedster Anthony Miller, who the Bears selected in the second round of this past spring's draft.

Known as Mongo, the 60-year-old former defensive tackle who co-hosts a Bears pregame show on ESPN Chicago WMVP-AM spent 13 of his 15 National Football League seasons with the Bears, including the 1985 Super Bowl team known for its defense. We also forget about the Lions and Matthew Stafford. Irvin had a similar, albeit more colorful, message. Although Jon Gruden is going into his first season as coach since leaving the "Monday Night Football" booth with the NFL's oldest roster, the future payoff could be fantastic. And I'll just say what (Reggie) said - I read what he said yesterday - it's a decision that we all came to. We don't get paid for that. But since bringing home the Lombardi Trophy in what seems like an eternity ago after the 2010 season, the Packers have suffered several gut-wrenching road playoff losses that have come during postseasons where the team seemed poised to make another championship run. "But I wish him the best, besides when he plays us".

Mack and Carr quickly became franchise cornerstones, and All-Pro edge rusher and Pro Bowl quarterback to anchor both sides of the ball. They also talked about winning a Super Bowl together, plans that were scrapped when Mack was abruptly shipped to the Bears. "I feel good about that". I believe that 100 per cent. That's the only thing we won't cross off the list. "Based on our study there will be some projection on how we think he'll use his players and tailor the scheme, concepts to the way he's done it in the past".

That said, it doesn't make the former Raider's absence any less weird for the time being.


That was particularly hard for Carr.

Carr signed a five-year, $125 million deal last summer. "You go to Green Bay".

That left little room for Mack under the salary cap, even though Carr specifically said he structured his contract in order to make it easier for the team to keep Mack.

"It's not what anybody wanted", Carr said. "Besides that, I'm sure we'll see each other soon". You just hope it can work out. And the Bears made us an offer that we thought was really unique. One of the reasons I'm here is because of him.
