The Raiders offseason workout program is underway and the NFL draft is less than two weeks away, meaning the Silver and Black are coming together as a team that will weather the 2018 season.

There are holes left to fill with amateur selections. Salary cap space must get cleared to pay these new draft picks. Khalil Macks contract extension must get worked out. Lingering injury issues remains

Questions abound remain heading into this spring. Lets answer a few in a pre-draft mailbag.

Q: What do you think a Khalil Mack extension will cost the Raiders? How will it work with the cap? (Brad Schmidt, on Facebook)

A: The Raiders remain confident theyll reach an long-term pact with edge rusher Khalil Mack this offseason. They know it wont be cheap. Von Millers $114 million deal should be viewed as a baseline for Macks deal, which should set a market for defensive players. Hes worth that amount, and the Raiders understand his value.

A new deal could be in the ballpark of $120 million over six years. NFL Networks Steve Wyche reported a deal could include $65 million in guaranteed money, a fair total that may get exceed. Time will tell on that front.

The Raiders have future cap space available for Mack. Theyre up against it this year, but dont forget Macks fifth-year option accounts for $13.86 million of that total. Most, if not all of his new money could come next year, or Macks 2018 cap number could decrease with a massive signing bonus " that cap hit would be split over the life of the deal -- and a lower base salary. The Raiders have options in that regard.

Also, theres little stress about Mack missing early offseason workouts. Hell be in shape when he reports. Make no mistake about that. Theres plenty of time to get a deal done this offseason, though the Raiders hope its done before training camp.
