Oakland Raiders star defensive end Khalil Mack is not expected to report for the team’s mandatory minicamp this week, according to a published report Monday.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing sources informed of the situation, that Mack plans to hold out as he seeks a lucrative contract extension.
Mack, who is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is set to make $13.846 million this season in the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. The 27-year-old reportedly is looking to become among the highest-paid non-quarterbacks in the league.
The Raiders can fine Mack up to $84,000 for missing the entire mandatory minicamp.
Mack recorded 78 tackles and 10.5 sacks in 16 games last season. He has 303 tackles and 40.5 sacks in 64 career contests since being selected by the Raiders with the fifth overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.
