Heading into a contract season, Mack is scheduled for a fifth-year option salary of $13.85 million, per OverTheCap. While there hasn't been much talk of a potential holdout, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Mack is hoping for a long-term contract similar to Von Miller's six-year, $114.5 million deal with the Broncos. The No. 5 overall pick from the 2014 draft had 73 or more tackles and played all 16 games in each of his first four NFL seasons, with double-digit sacks each of the past three years. The 27-year-old has a decent argument -- along with Aaron Donald and Odell Beckham -- to become the highest paid non-quarterback in the NFL.
Mack, who logged six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers, finishes up the 2017 season with 78 tackles (61 solo), 10.5 sacks, three passes defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games.
On the heels of his 2016 Defensive Player of the Year award, Mack posted a career-high 78 tackles in 2017 but regressed in terms of sacks and turnovers forced. The edge rusher is slated to be a key member for the Raiders' defense again in 2018, when he'll make a base salary of nearly $14 million before potentially becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
Mack notched four tackles (all solo) in Monday's 19-10 loss to the Eagles.
Mack's five-game sack streak came to an end in Week 16 as the defensive end failed to reach Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. Mack will need just one sack in Week 17 against the Chargers to surpass his 2016 total of 11.
Mack accounted for six tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.
Mack continues to heat up throughout the second half of the season as he's now posted six total sacks in the Raiders' past five games. He'll look to extend his sack streak to six games in Week 16 on Monday night against the Eagles, who most recently gave up just one sack in a win over the Giants.
Mack recorded six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs.
Mack extended his sack streak to four games in Week 14, bringing his sack total to 8.5 through 13 games. He logged 11 sacks during his Defensive Player of the Year campaign in 2016, so he'll have a real chance at surpassing that mark throughout the Raiders' final three contests. Mack's next test comes against a Cowboys offensive line that ranks in the top 10 in terms of sacks allowed, having given up just 25 on the season.
