The staredown between the Browns and the Jaguars over center Alex Mack is about to begin.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Mack will sign his offer sheet from the Jaguars tomorrow.
The deal is set to be for five years, and worth a total of $42 million, with $18 million the first two years. It’s also reported to include a player option after the 2015 season which would prevent his team from tagging him.
So if he wants to leave Cleveland, which he hasn’t exactly/kind-of sort-of said, he could do so even if they match, after making $18 million over two years.
The Browns have five days to decide to match, but if they don’t, they’d get no compensation since he was given the transition tag instead of the franchise tag.
