    It's nice to think about, but not gonna happen. Gruden would be chased out of town with pitchforks lol.

    A defensive player is going to change our defense to a top 5 unit?

    Regardless of Gruden speaking with him or not, OAK/LV is not letting him go. Not a chance in hell.

    Miami should be the last team thinking about acquiring him.

    Give up a first round pick and a contract exceeding 20 million AAV?

    Lmao

    Even if we gave up huge draft capital, how do we fit him under the cap? Unless you want a 6 month rental?

    IDK, i'm not a cap guru, but if they could have fit Suh in the cap they would be able to figure out how to fit Mack in.

    I would be lying if I didn't say I've been thinking about this for a little while. Hard not to to want that dude on your team.

    If you consider the 13.3% (or close to) California state income tax, it makes perfect sense what he's doing. Remember how much more money the Raiders had to offer Suh than we did, and he still would've made more in Florida on a smaller contract.

    Gruden apparently deferred a lot of his money to when the Raiders move to Nevada which also doesn't have a state income tax, so Mack wants to do the same thing.

    Only way we could make it happen would be to dump 2 of Alonso, McDonald or Branch on Oakland. Along with a 2019 first and fourth. Likely would need a 2020 2nd as well to actually get Oakland to move arguably the most feared pass rusher in football.

    It WON'T happen because someone would offer a king's ransom for the dude, unlikely to be us.

    It COULD happen because Miami has a young team and is about a year away from dumping quite few unnecessary contracts and has a young roster built primarily by recent draft picks on rookie contracts.

    It WON'T happen because he's Khalil Mack. You don't just acquire guys like that.

    It COULD happen if Khalil Mack happened to really want to be in Miami.

    It WON'T happen because Jon Gruden isn't stupid.

    To sum up, it COULD happen but it WON'T.

    For the record though, if Miami traded their first rounder in 2019 for Mack, it would end up being pick #32.

    I would love to swap our 2019 for Oakland's 2019 2nd rounder as part of the deal. You could almost include anything you want after that. It's possible we would end up swapping pick 32 for a pick in the 34-38 range.

    I'm bored.

    Mack/Quinn/Harris/Wake......could set a new single season sack record.

    My Madden senses are tingling ...

    JK obviously this type of deal could have legs, but we are not in a position to handle that type of contract or auction off our draft resources.

    You're more than just bored if you think we win the SB this year.

    This might play in the Phins favor actually. Many teams and reports have us as one of the three worst teams in the NFL. If we make a play on that alone, other teams may see us as excellent trade bait as they'll think we would be giving a top five pick for someone they cannot sign.

    Florida guy who gives back to his home town (Fort Pierce)

    Would definitely give us a legit talent for life after Wake.

    40.5 sacks in 4 years.

    I would just wait till next offseason. Doubt the Raiders move him now. If they don't want him longterm(for what ever reason) then they would franchise him and probably shop him like we did Landry. Except his price tag would be higher.
    2019 draft class is loaded with DL talent. See where the Dolphins land in the draft and go from there.

    I think adding Mack puts Miami in the conversation for most talented overall AFC roster. I don't think there would be a pass rushing/secondary combination more feared in the NFL.

    With the luck needed to play a part in any teams title aspirations, you can only put yourself in the mix of teams capable.

    This isn't the NBA. Golden State's don't exist in the NFL.
