Months after trading Khalil Mack to the Bears for draft picks, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is still being asked about the move. When asked about the trade on Thursday he made it clear he was tired of being asked about it.
Gruden admitted that part of the reason they traded Mack had to do with his brother’s mishandling of Kirk Cousins in Washington.
Via The Sports Daily:
“I’m getting tired of you bringing that up, Khalil Mack. We made the trade for a lot of reasons, whether it’s popular or not … for the fans that aren’t happy about that, we’re really sorry about that. It’s hard to replace a guy like that. It’s sensitive. I’m still sensitive about it … I do know this: my brother didn’t get anything for Kirk Cousins except a compensatory pick. At least we got some picks. We got a chance to do something with them.”
The move is still being questioned for a very good reason and I hope reporters never stop asking him about it. Salty Gruden is everyone’s favorite Gruden.
