Updating the Khalil Mack trade
Gruden in 2019

quote:

“If we did come up with the money to make the [Khalil Mack] contract happen last year, we wouldn’t have any of these men we’re talking about now,” said Gruden. “We would not have Trent Brown, we wouldn’t have Antonio Brown, we would not have Lamarcus Joyner, we wouldn’t have Vontaze Burfict, and we wouldn’t have Tyrell Williams.”



Trent Brown - Played 16 games in 2 seasons after Raiders made him highest paid lineman. Voted to Pro Bowl before tearing his pec in week 11 of 2019. Missed a lot of 2020 with COVID complications. Traded to Patriots for a 5th rounder.

Lamarcus Joyner - Released. $2.5 million in dead cap for 2021.

Tyrell Williams - Released after 2 injury filled season. Earned $22 million for 42 catches.

Vontaze Burfict - Suspended in week 4 of the 2019 season for being a habitual POS for intentionally using his helmet to murder players, Gruden called him misunderstood. There were reports that Gruden wanted to have him on the field as a coach during his suspension. Burfict was last heard from when he was arrested in Vegas on battery charges that started over asking for directions to a secret pizza restaurant.

Antonio Brown - LOL. Also, the 66th pick traded to the Steelers turned into Diontae Johnson.


2019 1st Josh Jacobs - The best move that came from the trade until today. Always a good idea to give top 13 RB money to a backup when your starter on a rookie contract is top 5 in yards and tds the last 2 seasons. What else should you spend it on? Not like another team is going to hand over a Khalil Mack.


2020 1st Damone Arnette - 116/121 rated CB by PFF

2020 3rd Bryan Edwards - injury filled year. Gruden says he’ll be a great WR after a breakout game in week 17 when he had 2 catches for 51 yards and a TD.

re: Updating the Khalil Mack trade
Gruden is just trying to spread his hand and win on percentages. The problem is he doesn't have any good cards.

If they hadn’t given a washed up chunky doll 10 million a year they’d have a little extra coin too
