Here’s Rams’ Trade Proposal For Khalil Mack That Raiders Rejected



Raiders coach Jon Gruden is not backing down from his decision to trade star pass rusher Khalil Mack, but his latest explanation for the move wrongly suggests that the Raiders had no other choice.

Then with less than two minutes to play, Peters, acquired in an offseason trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, intercepted a pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to put the game out of reach.

Derek Carr looked at one point like he had the potential to be one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League, but his struggles from last season spilled over into 2018 with a rough game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. "Very disappointing", Gruden said after the Raiders were outscored 23-0 after halftime.

Rams coach Sean McVay agreed that the Raiders' offense caused some confusion, in part because there was no game tape to study of new coach Jon Gruden's scheme.

"We are just getting started, you feel me?" They gave us multiple looks.

Bruce Irvin forces a fumble - The defensive highlight of Monday night belonged to Bruce Irvin, who got to Rams quarterback Jared Goff in the second quarter, forcing a fumble that was ultimately recovered by Los Angeles.

Conley gets the start - One of the biggest storylines headed into 2018 was the development of second-year cornerback Gareon Conley, and while we're just one game into the season, it was nice to see the former Ohio State Buckeye play much of the opener. The first number is the total number of snaps played followed by the percentage of snaps played.

"He was under contract", Gruden said of Mack.

Aaron Donald, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, reported 10 days before the opener after signing a six-year, $135-million contract extension, to end a contract dispute that dated to 2017. "And we'll take a good look at the reasons why we didn't", Gruden said.
