NFL: Browns match offer for C Mack

on April 12, 2014 10:54 AM

CLEVELAND (AP) — Alex Mack was as good as gone. The Browns pulled back their Pro Bowl center in a snap.

Acting quickly after Jacksonville signed Mack to a five-year, $42 million offer sheet, Cleveland wasted little time and matched the deal for Mack, who will remain with the Browns for at least two more years.

The 28-year-old Mack will receive $26 million guaranteed in the deal, which he can void after two seasons. Also, the Browns are not allowed to tag or trade him. That’s the steep price they’ll pay for allowing another team to do their negotiating, and for letting one of their core players test the free-agent market.
