|Khalil Mack is holding out from the mandatory minicamp for the Oakland Raiders.
Mack stayed away from the first day of the three-day minicamp on Tuesday. He is subject to a fine of about $80 Eric Ebron Jersey ,000 if he doesn’t show up at all this week.
Mack is entering the final season of his rookie contract that is set to pay him $13.8 million. Mack is seeking a long-term deal and hasn’t participated in the entire offseason program in the first year under new coach Jon Gruden.
”One of the big reasons I came here was to coach that man,” Gruden said. ”I don’t want to speculate. There are a lot of guys in the league, several players in a similar situation. We’re just trying to resolve it as soon as possible and in the meantime coach the players that are here.”
Mack has been one of the top defensive players in football since being drafted in the first round in 2014. He was a first-team All-Pro at both defensive end and linebacker in 2015 and won AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2016. He has 40 1/2 sacks in four seasons and leads the NFL in QB pressures with 185.5 since entering the league, according to SportRadar.
”You can’t replace Khalil,” safety Karl Joseph said. ”You know what he’s doing. We respect it. I think the other guys have done a good job stepping up and learning the system like everybody else has been. When he’s ready to come back, we’ll be ready for him. You can’t replace a guy like that.”
The Raiders also signed free agent defensive tackles Ahtyba Rubin and Frostee Rucker on Tuesday and waived quarterback Christian Hackenberg and linebacker Brady Shelton to make room on the roster.
Rubin spent his first seven seasons with Cleveland before stints with Seattle, Denver and Atlanta the past three years. Rubin has appeared in 144 games and made 107 starts Robert Woods Jersey , while recording 428 tackles, 15 sacks, two interceptions, seven passes defensed, six forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Rucker spent the first six years of his career with Cincinnati before going to Cleveland in 2012. He spent the past five seasons with Arizona. Rucker has appeared in 142 games with 73 starts, recording 350 tackles, 21.5 sacks Colton Schmidt Jersey , one interception, 12 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
Former No. 1 overall draft pick David Carr believes that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlsberger is currently being carried by star skill position players like running back Le'Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Carr offered his ranking of the top ten quarterback in the NFL heading into the 2018 season and did not include Roethlisberger on his list. He had Roethlisberger, Houston’s Deshaun Watson and Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz just outside the top ten.
“Yes, he’s a future Hall of Famer and there’s no doubt he can still help the Steelers,” Carr wrote of his rationale for the exclusion of Roethlisberger. “But he has the most talented skill players in the league on his unit, and that pair — Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell — makes him look great 14 seasons in. I don’t think Big Ben could win a ton of games without them at this stage in his career.”
Roethlisberger is 36 years old and is preparing for his 15th year with the Steelers. He surpassed 4 Tyler Higbee Jersey ,000 yards passing for the fifth time in his career last season, throwing for 4,251 yards with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He also completed 64.2 percent of his passes, which is consistent with his career averages.
There is no question that Roethlisberger benefits from the presence of Bell and Brown on Pittsburgh’s roster. Trying to quantify how much of an impact they have on Roethlisberger continuing to be able to produce at such a high level is far more difficult.
Carr’s top ten list featured Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Derek Carr Byron Jones Jersey , Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan, Cam Newton and Jimmy Garoppolo. The inclusion of Garoppolo at this stage could be somewhat questionable given his limited sample size of games played, but it’s Carr’s opinion to give.
David Carr was selected by the Houston Texans with the first pick of the 2002 NFL Draft.
