The NFL world woke up to shocking news on Saturday morning. The Raiders are trading former Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack to the Bears.
The move is a shock to the Raiders, especially two of their marquee players.
Quarterback Derek Carr and defensive end Bruce Irvin voiced their frustration on Twitter. Irvin, Mack's counterpart on the rush, was a lot more R-rated.
Carr went with a much cleaner version, but the same message was delivered. The quarterback couldn't believe the news.
After his angry tweet, Irvin delivered a different message to Raider Nation a mere 15 minutes later.
The Silver and Black's quarterback tried to rally Raider Nation as well.
At 1-5, Jon Gruden's second stint with the Raiders is off to a historically poor start.
The Silver and Black has started 1-5 only twice before. The last time was in 2006, under another previous head coach (Art Shell), and Oakland ultimately finished 2-14.
With just one win in the first six games of a 10-year contract -- reportedly worth $100 million -- one website is already counting down the days until Gruden's deal expires.
The website isgrudengoneyet.com was registered on Oct. 10, according to Yahoo's Charles Robinson, and features the answer to that question (no) a countdown clock with just how much time is left in Gruden's tenure (nine years, 13 weeks, and 2 days, as of this writing).
It also includes a live, constantly updating ticker of how much money Gruden's made so far with the Raiders, how much money he's owed, and how much money Gruden has made since you started visiting the website. In other words, the mind(s) behind this website are really looking forward to who the Raiders' next head coach is.
Gruden and the Raiders have a bye in Week 7, and host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8. Or, rather, with nine years and 11-or-so weeks left on Gruden's contract.
If the Raiders actually are trying to trade wide receiver Amari Cooper, they're swinging for the fences on the return.
One day after Fox Sports reported the Raiders are shopping Cooper and safety Karl Joseph, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the team wants a first-round draft pick in return for the wide receiver.
As Rapoport explained Monday, asking for a first-round pick might make a deal hard to complete.
"My understanding is [the Raiders] have asked for a first-round pick for Amari Cooper, which seems incredibly significant and might make it difficult, if not impossible to trade him," Rapoport said.
Cooper, 24, was a first-round pick himself, taken by the Raiders No. 4 overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Cooper is in the midst of an inconsistent 2018 season, catching 22 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown. On Sunday, his day was cut short when he took a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter and later was ruled out with a concussion.
