Raiders Won't Sign Khalil Mack To An Extension Until 2018

The Oakland Raiders have locked up QB Derek Carr and OG Gabe Jackson to long-term deals this offseason. However, LB Khalil Mack will have to wait. 

Mack, one of the best players in the NFL, is in line for a massive new contract. It will likely rival, if not surpass, the six-year, $114.5 million ($70 million guaranteed) deal that Von Miller got from the Broncos in 2016.

Mack is under contract for this season and next. He has a cap hit just under $6 million for this year and just under $14 million for 2018. 

The Raiders also have the option, thanks to the extensions for Carr and Jackson, to use the franchise tag on Mack. That gives them some added leverage in contract negotiations. Still, given the relative ease with which Carr and Jackson were re-signed, negotiations with Mack shouldn't end up like the Cousins-Redskins talks.
