Default Alex Mack visits Jacksonville

Chances of Cleveland letting him go?

Oh hell no, if he ends up on an AFC South team that isn't the Colts I'm going to break something.

That being said I think the Browns would be stupid to let him walk, and barring some unreasonable offer I think he stays.

Mack should just sign the tender and make an absurd amount of money for a Center for a year and then next season Cleveland would be on the hook for so much money if they tag him again, that he's pretty much guaranteed to hit FA if he's not talking to them about an extension.

That is absolutely the wrong decision. He's an FA now with the only stipulation being that the Browns have the option to match any offer he gets.

Which is a pretty damn big stipulation given the browns will match any offer he gets. Signing the tender gets him paid more than any long term deal he'd get would for this year and frankly the guaranteed money he might be passing on isn't that much more than the tender for an OL. Especially if he stays healthy.

That Mary kay ***** was saying it might take 25-30 million guaranteed over the first three years to lure him away.

That's hilarious.

Players sign multi-year deals that have less aav than one year deals because you can't predict health. Especially a center. All it takes is a teammate getting blown up on a trap play and some 350lb ************ falling on Mack's ankle awkwardly (which happens a lot) to put him out for a year and a half or worse.

He could sign the long term deal anywhere and still end up in cleveland for the next 5 years because they would almost certainly match it.

If they transition tag him this year and franchise him next year thats about $24 million guaranteed money over 2 years that the browns are willing to pay....im sure the reasonable offer for him is that much guaranteed over the next 5 years, browns would gladly take that

That would be a terrible idea. He could break one bone or tear one ligament and lose like 20-30 million dollars doing that.

He'd lose out on his guaranteed money and first year salary. I don't see anyone offering much more than 20 mil between first year salary and guaranteed dollars at this point in the offseason, and doesn't the tag give him 15?

Congratulations, Cleveland Browns, you're paying a center $8m/y

We would be in such a better situation if we had let Alex Mack go and had 38 million in cap instead of 30.

Just think of an offensive line with Joe Thomas and a bunch of average/below average players and a potential rookie QB starting.

People are so ******* obsessed with cap space. You have it to use it.
