Among the people who were most surprised by the Oakland Raiders' trade of Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears were ... the Oakland Raiders.

"When we first came in, we planned the next 10 to 15 years of our life, and I think that's the weirdest part, is that it's a little bit of a different chapter now", Carr explained in his first comments since Saturday's trade.

"It isn't what anybody wanted - I think that's clear", Carr said (via ESPN). "He got what he wanted and we know it's a part of the business". "It's one of those sucky things that happen".

It's not often that one of the best players in the National Football League becomes available, so the Jets weren't going to just sit on the sideline as other teams tried their luck.

Mack, the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year, was looking for a new contract and had been holding out of Raiders camp. The Raiders, who gave Carr a contract that pays him $25 million annually last summer, weren't willing to give him that, so they traded him to the Bears in exchange for two first-round picks (among other draft picks that were exchanged in the deal) and watched the Bears immediately hand Mack the record-breaking contract he desired.

Carr said Raiders coach Jon Gruden discussed the move with the team. In the interim, there's fallout that had to be dealt with, and Gruden spoke Monday with his players.

"(He) said what he said, invited anyone who needed to talk to him, open door", Carr said. "It really just shows that management and this organization, we're going for it, and you've got to appreciate aggressiveness like this".

Donald, another preseason no-show, came to terms on a six-year, $135 million contract with the Rams.

If any new rookie is going to get a lot of playing time, it's going to be Alexander, whose size and speed make him a natural fit to play as the team's slot nickel corner. "And I'll just say what [Reggie] said... it's a decision that we all came to". "I feel good about that".

"I don't believe we were anywhere close to where the Bears were. We've had one winning season in 14 years", he said. "We've got to have a good, solid plan with that balance of not doing too much, but pushing him to where we get him ready".

The Raiders have a week to get over their loss.

The Bears will take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Sept. 9.

Mack was recently traded to the Chicago Bears, and former Georgia running back Todd Gurley is not upset about it.
