Gruden doesn´t regret decision to trade Mack

September 18 2018 1:30 AM

Jon Gruden is not second guessing the Oakland Raiders' decision to trade Khalil Mack.

The Raiders sent the star 27-year-old pass rusher, along with a second-round pick, to the Chicago Bears in exchange for four future draft choices earlier this month.

Oakland have struggled to pressure opposing quarterbacks during their 0-2 start to the season, but Gruden said that has not made him re-evaluate the deal.  

"It doesn't make me regret making the decision," Gruden told reporters on Monday (via NBC Sports).

"We made the trade. There's going to be hindsight and all that stuff. We would have loved to have had him here but he's not here."

Mack, the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year, was looking for a new contract and held out of Raiders camp before the trade. The Bears made him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history when they inked him to a six-year, $141million extension shortly after they acquired him.

Gruden said dealing Mack for draft picks should help the Raiders in the future.

"Hopefully we prove that in the long run we did the right thing," Gruden said.

Mack recorded a sack and returned an interception for a touchdown in his Chicago debut.
