Not even 12 hours after reports surfaced that the Oakland Raiders were very much engaged in trade talks with several teams to offload Khalil Mack http://www.authenticsseattleseahawks.com/cheap-k.j.-wright-jersey , it looks as if they’ve found their trading partner to end the holdout saga.Adam Schefter broke the news on Saturday morning that the plan is in place for the Raiders to trade their pass rushing stud to the Chicago Bears. Ian Rapoport added that Oakland is going to get at least two first-round picks as part of the deal, so their asking price was met.This is obviously a huge blow to the Raiders defense, which was already bad to begin with. Former Seahawks LB Bruce Irvin is among those who is completely stunned.As for the Bears, if this trade gets processed, this will move Mack, who has racked up 36.5 sacks over the past three seasons, to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio’s 3-4 defense. You may be surprised to know that the Bears were right behind the Seahawks in DVOA ranking last year. The Seahawks are scheduled to play the Raiders in London this October, but they also have the Bears on Monday night in Week 2 Youth Michael Dickson Jersey , so the Seahawks are going to wind up facing Mack a lot earlier than expected.Update: Full details on the trade. Update #2: Khalil Mack got PAID.Seahawks bring back Maurice Alexander The Seattle Seahawks have signed safety Maurice Alexander, per Ian Rapoport.Alexander, a fourth round pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2014, worked his way up to starting 14 games at free safety in 2016, recording 50 tackles and two interceptions. He won the job to open 2017, but four games in, Sean McVay deemed a healthy scratch in Week 5 against the Seahawks and replaced him with John Johnson. The team released Alexander shortly thereafter and he remained a free agent. Seattle signed Alexander in the offseason, releasing him on September 1.The Seahawks are of course searching for safety help after the loss of Earl Thomas to a broken leg this past Sunday. Former Indianapolis Colts safety T.J. Green indicated via Twitter that he was going to Seattle Shaquill Griffin Jersey , but no formal announcement has been made. The Seahawks could have signed both, with the most likely corresponding move being the release of safety Shalom Luani, who was active several games ago which cost the team defensive tackle Tom Johnson.The cycle continues.Edit: With Mychal Kendricks suspended, it opens up another spot and with Alexander’s experience at linebacker, makes sense why the team might want both and could still use both without losing Luani or someone else.
