Mack's deal is official

Earlier Saturday, PFT broke the news that Browns first-round pick Alex Mack had agreed to terms with the team.

The Browns have now confirmed the move is official through a press release. 

Mack’s deal is for five years.  This site’s fearless leader reports that he’ll earn a 12.2 percent increase in guaranteed money over the No. 21 pick of last season’s draft.

The Browns didn’t draft Mack to sit on the bench.  He has a good chance to displace Hank Fraley as the team’s starting center.  He could also possibly play guard as a rookie.

Eric Mangini hopes that Mack and left tackle Joe Thomas will provide the foundation for an excellent offensive line for his tenure in Cleveland. 

He tried the same tactic in New York with Nick Mangold and D’Brickashaw Ferguson to good, not great, results.

    I Like the Choice . You build up front then add your skill players later . It Starts and stops with the Trench players on both sides of the Ball .
    Go Browns.

    The only teams that make sense for Vick as QB are Cleveland and SF, and I could see Mangini taking him on. Mack and Thomas blocking for Vick would be a pretty good deal!

    BK:
    You obviously do not know anything about Eric Mangini. To play for him, you must be an intelligent player with high character. Do either of those attributes fit Michael Vick?
