In a surprising chain of events, the Chicago Bears snagged Khalil Mack from the Oakland Raiders.
The trade results in a 2019 first-round pick and a sixth-round pick, a 2020 first and third-round pick.
Bears get the top pass rusher in the NFL plus a 2020 second-round pick and a fifth-round conditional pick.
Trade official, source tells ESPN:
Bears get: Khalil Mack, a 2020 second-round round pick and a conditional 2020 fifth-round pick.
Raiders get: 2019 first-round pick, 2020 first-round pick, 2020 third-round pick, 2019 sixth-round pick.
So Bears get back second-round pick, too

While the Raiders fans are in mourning, players took to Twitter to express their shock at the situation.
The Raiders quarterback had this to say:

The Bears are now in a position to be one of the top five defenses in the league and have a chance to dominate the NFC North. General manager Ryan Pace pulled the trigger and made sure that starting QB Mitchell Trubisky has everything needed to succeed. If the Bears mantra has been #BeObsessed well, there is no doubt it is about winning.
Pace stated with the hiring of Matt Nagy that his goal was to bring back the Monsters of the Midway. I believe that he has succeeded in that dream.
There has been no mention as to the monetary value of what the Bears will be shelling out for their new toy, but it will surpass that of the Rams defensive end Aaron Darnold.
Raider Nation is in mourning, but Chicago Bears Nation is flying high!
We drafted Roquan! We got Kahlil Mack! Brian Urlacher is in the Hall of Fame! It’s a great time to be a Chicago Bears fan!
