Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack continues to holdout as he seeks a long-term deal with the team.  The 27 year old has already been fined $814,000 for missing the first preseason game.

Mack will continue to rack up hefty fines until he reports.  The fact that a deal hasn’t already been done is a little shocking.

This isn’t just any defensive end, Mack has recorded double digit sacks in three straight seasons and hasn’t missed a game in his four year NFL career.

Former Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio has a simple solution to end the holdout.  He says, “Gotta pay the man!”

It’s hard to argue with that.  This guy shows up every Sunday and performs.  Who doesn’t want a guy who knows how to sack the QB?
