Report: Browns met with Alex Mack over the weekend

Browns center Alex Mack was in Brazil in February, which meant he wasn’t meeting with the Browns about a new contract with free agency fast approaching.

Mack’s agent Marv Demoff said that the plan was for Mack to connect with the team at the end of the month to give the Browns a chance “to explain what happened” regarding the offseason coaching and front office overhaul. Demoff intimated that the impressions left by that meeting would go a long way toward determining Mack’s approach to free agency and returning to the Browns.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the meeting took place over the weekend. Per Rapoport, re-signing Mack is the team’s top priority and they hoped to use the meeting to convince the center that the team is moving in the right direction.

Mack has started every game for the Browns over the last five seasons and, be it in Cleveland or elsewhere, is likely to command more than $13 million guaranteed and $38.898 million overall over seven years that the Eagles gave Jason Kelce last week.

    Browns ARE NOT a factory of sadness. They are something MUCH WORSE:

    Raiders of the Midwest.

    Both Mack and Ward need to be signed, you cannot put a hole in the middle of both sides of the ball and expect to improve.

    Mack would be wise to leave this abomination of an organization.

    If this revised front office doesn’t resign Mack, it is time to give up on the season already, Browns fans.

    If the Browns are serious about putting a winning team on the field, then they resign Mack. It’s that simple.

    Mack would look good in a Falcons uniform. Watch it happen baby!

    fact is there is no proff the Browns are moving in the right direction, and all the players should demand new ownership or trade us,, and I’m a Browns fan, but to believe anything from a guy who stole from his customers is telling enough.

    The BROWN’S are moving in the right direction, Banner and Lombardi, are replaced, with Ray Farmer, things are looking up for the Browns.

    Run Alex Run!! The only reason to live there, pay those ridiculous and unnecessary state taxes AND lose every week is if you hate your family.

    Because obviously NFL owners definitely want players with a history of making demands of them even though they’re the employee’s. If word actually got out that a player did that the only place they’d get work is Canada if they’re lucky.

    A wall starts with that first brick. Mack, is that brick on the O-line.

    I believe our GM, Ray Farmer, knows what he’s doing and it will get done.

    These are the kind of players you shouldn’t even hesitate resigning….C’MON ALEX! we need ya man!!! this team is slowly but surely heading in the right direction and you are definately loved by the fans.

    pay the man. they have got to show the team and other free agents that they mean business and are willing to spend some money to get some of these guys interested in Cleveland.
