The Raiders don’t expect the defensive end to report for mandatory minicamp due to an ongoing contract dispute, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing unidentified sources.

Mack, who has sat out voluntary workouts this offseason, will earn $13.846 million in 2018 under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. However, he is reportedly seeking a new deal with more than $65 million in guarantees.

Graziano: 9-7. The division is stronger than it was two years ago, the Seattle defense has lost too many pieces to continue as the dominant unit it used to be, and I’m still not all the way sold on what the Seahawks have at wide receiver and offensive line. Wilson is good enough to get the Seahawks to a winning record, and the roster is far Derick Brassard Authentic Jersey from barren, but I don’t see Womens Deone Bucannon Jersey any clear reason to expect the 2018 Seahawks to be better than the 2017 Seahawks were.

John Hicks, who had two hits off Kluber, tried to give his teammates some hopeful advice.

I told a couple guys that if he throws a pitch that looks like a strike, it is probably going to end up a ball, and if it looks like a ball, it will probably be a strike, he said. It’s like hitting a Wiffle Ball.
