Raiders broadcaster Lincoln Kennedy insists Khalil Mack won’t be traded

Getty Images At a time when momentum seems to be building for the Raiders trading holdout defensive end Khalil Mack, a Raiders employee has pushed back aggressively.
Former Raiders player and current Raiders radio analyst Lincoln Kennedy said on FOX Sports Radio that a trade isn’t happening.

Khalil Mack will be a Raider, there’s no doubt about it.” (If there is any doubt about the accuracy or context of the quote, there shouldn’t be; Kennedy retweeted the message from the FSR account.)
But it’s impossible to reconcile Kennedy’s position with the rampant and growing reports of teams exploring the trade — and with the absence of any suggestion that the Raiders are hanging up the phone on teams that are calling about Mack.

Privately, one or both needs to say that same thing to any team that has inquired or that will inquire.
Better yet, the Raiders need to put together a package similar if not identical to the one signed Friday by Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald and offer it to Mack.
If it does, however, it will definitely tend to prove Kennedy’s point.

Kennedy’s connection to the team makes his opinion noteworthy, since he’s surely in position to get someone from the Raiders to tell Kennedy what’s going on. But it’s impossible to reconcile Kennedy’s position with the rampant and growing reports of teams exploring the trade — and with the absence of any suggestion that the Raiders are hanging up the phone on teams that are calling about…
