Raiders’ Khalil Mack’s Contract Holdout Is Going To Cost Him

The Oakland Raiders’ defensive end Khalil Mack will be fined $814,000 for not reporting to the team before Friday’s preseason opener against the Detroit Lions, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Mack is holding out for a contract extension, as his rookie deal is set to expire following the conclusion of the 2018 season.

Reports are suggesting that Mack isn’t close to striking a deal with the Raiders. Although, he is scheduled to earn $13.8 million this year.

On July 31, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport noted there was “no present offer” from Oakland.

A NFC executive told Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman he believes the Raiders could entertain trade offers for their prized pass-rusher.

“There’s a feeling the Raiders are open for business when it comes to Mack.”
