Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said his team's efforts to trade for Khalil Mack a year ago have been thwarted primarily by the Raiders' perception that the Bears have failed higher draft pick in the first round.
Murphy told 105.7 The Fan that the Packers had made the Raiders a great deal for Mack, but the Raiders thought the Bears had a worse team.
"Well, the whole Khalil Mack thing. It's not that we did not try, "Murphy said." We were aggressive, we wanted to sign it, and I think, ironically, the Raiders accepted the Bears offer because they thought they were a better draft pick This turned out to be unwise as the Raiders eventually scored the 12th overall victory for the Packers while the Robbers received the 24th pick from the Bears, but Murphy believes it would have worked well and noticed that if the Packers had combined the huge contract Mack demanded with the huge contract they gave Aaron Rodgers, there would be no roster for the other 51 players on the
"I do not know whether it's good to have the highest-paid offensive player in the league and the highest-paid defensive player in the league, "Murphy said," is that a good way to build a team? "
Whether the packers have found a good way around the Te it remains to be seen, as the results were not good in the last year.
