Alex Mack signing offer sheet with Jaguars; Browns will match

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars are in need of a center, and the best one in the NFL in Alex Mack. Will he escape the Browns to join them?

UPDATE

It appears the Browns will waste no time in locking up Mack by matching the Jaguars' offer sheet for him:

***

As the offseason continues, the NFL free agency market has dwindled, but Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack is still free to sign an offer sheet with any team he wants. Viewed as one of the game's best centers, Mack wants to leave Cleveland, but because the Browns placed the franchise tag on him, they can match any offer made.

To this point, Mack has only drawn interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars, who hosted him for a visit last Friday. They now plan to sign him to an offer sheet that will be hard for the Browns to match:

The ball will now be in Cleveland's court once Mack signs the offer sheet, though they are expected to match any deal the Jags can offer him. They're desperate for good football players, and losing Mack would just be another setback for a franchise that has suffered far too many setbacks since coming back to Cleveland.
