Khalil Mack struck gold when he was traded from the Raiders to the Bears. As soon as he landed in Chicago, he signed a six-year, $141 million deal that made him the highest-paid defensive player in the league.

In his first season in Chicago, Mack lived up to the hype and was nearly named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year. The second year of the contract didn’t go nearly as well, but we expect him to bounce back to elite levels in 2020.
