proud of what

Khalil Mack is holding out from the mandatory minicamp for the Oakland Raiders.

Mack stayed away from the first day of the three-day minicamp on Tuesday. He is subject to a fine of about $80 Youth Joe Flacco Jersey ,000 if he doesn’t show up at all this week.

Mack is entering the final season of his rookie contract that is set to pay him $13.8 million. Mack is seeking a long-term deal and hasn’t participated in the entire offseason program in the first year under new coach Jon Gruden.

”One of the big reasons I came here was to coach that man,” Gruden said. ”I don’t want to speculate. There are a lot of guys in the league, several players in a similar situation. We’re just trying to resolve it as soon as possible and in the meantime coach the players that are here.”

Mack has been one of the top defensive players in football since being drafted in the first round in 2014. He was a first-team All-Pro at both defensive end and linebacker in 2015 and won AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2016. He has 40 1/2 sacks in four seasons and leads the NFL in QB pressures with 185.5 since entering the league, according to SportRadar.

”You can’t replace Khalil,” safety Karl Joseph said. ”You know what he’s doing. We respect it. I think the other guys have done a good job stepping up and learning the system like everybody else has been. When he’s ready to come back, we’ll be ready for him. You can’t replace a guy like that.”

The Raiders also signed free agent defensive tackles Ahtyba Rubin and Frostee Rucker on Tuesday and waived quarterback Christian Hackenberg and linebacker Brady Shelton to make room on the roster.

Rubin spent his first seven seasons with Cleveland before stints with Seattle, Denver and Atlanta the past three years. Rubin has appeared in 144 games and made 107 starts Womens C.J. Mosley Jersey , while recording 428 tackles, 15 sacks, two interceptions, seven passes defensed, six forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Rucker spent the first six years of his career with Cincinnati before going to Cleveland in 2012. He spent the past five seasons with Arizona. Rucker has appeared in 142 games with 73 starts, recording 350 tackles, 21.5 sacks Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , one interception, 12 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.

Nine days ago, Hue Jackson let it slip in a press conference that he had selected Baker Mayfield to backup Tyrod Taylor. The Browns coach, though, caught himself after realizing he hadn’t told the quarterbacks of the verdict and tried to couch it.

鈥淚 pretty much have my mind made up on where that is,鈥?Jackson backtracked to reporters. 鈥淚 haven鈥檛 set it officially so you guys can write it. I like to tell my team first before I make those decisions on what we鈥檙e doing. We will kind of go from there.鈥?/p>

On Tuesday Authentic Landon Collins Jersey , Hard Knocks let everyone behind the scenes when Jackson told the quarterbacks of his decision.

Near the end of the final episode, Jackson called Mayfield and Drew Stanton into this office to let them know the No. 1 overall choice would begin the season active on game days as the No. 2 quarterback.

鈥淚 think it鈥檚 important that I address both of you guys together first. I鈥檝e made a decision to make Baker the backup quarterback,鈥?Jackson told Mayfield and Stanton. 鈥淚 just wanted to make sure . . . I wanted you guys to hear it from me instead of all the stuff that flies out there and all that bulls—. I think it鈥檚 important that you hear that from me. OK?

鈥淸It鈥檚] a lot of responsibility for you [Mayfield]. Doesn鈥檛 change for you [Stanton]. Still got to be ready to play, ready to go. But that鈥檚 the direction I want to travel. OK? So I wanted you guys to know that.鈥?/p>

Jackson dismissed Stanton before further addressing Mayfield, who went 35-of-61 for 501 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in the preseason.

鈥淚鈥檓 proud of what you鈥檝e done,鈥?Jackson told Mayfield. 鈥淵ou鈥檝e come in here the right way. You鈥檝e handled everything the right way, and I think that鈥檚 important for this football team. You鈥檙e a very talented young man. Keep grinding.

鈥淚鈥檓 going to keep creating situations for you to even do more. You keep doing your part every day. This is going to be your life for a long time Womens Cam Newton Jersey , so I hope you understand the opportunity that鈥檚 in front of you right now. But you鈥檝e earned it. I鈥檓 not just giving it to you. You鈥檝e earned it.鈥?/p>

Mayfield thanked Jackson, and the coach added, 鈥淚鈥檓 proud of you.鈥?/p> Adidas Jack Eichel Jersey
