Johnny Manziel becomes a Fantasy sleeper as a Brown


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) One of the reasons Johnny Manziel was such a spectacular player in college was because he was able to extend a play and throw to a big receiver down the field. Landing with the Browns is a total win for Johnny Football because he'll have Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, Greg Little and Nate Burleson as down-field targets along with Andrew Hawkins as a quick, short-area weapon. Ben Tate rumbling in the backfield doesn't hurt either.

Another impressive factor is the Browns O-line, which has two studs in left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If the line can improve from last season (we're looking at you, Mitchell Schwartz), then Manziel will have time to make good throws.

Of all the places he could have gone in the draft, Cleveland's the best fit. Not only should he inject life into the franchise but he should end up starting in Week 1 against the Steelers. Expect Manziel to get taken late in every single seasonal draft as a combo backup Fantasy QB/sleeper who could get some serious trade value. He'll get picked in the middle rounds in dynasty/keeper leagues and should be considered a Top 5 choice in rookie-only drafts.

Browns will match Jaguars' offer for Alex Mack


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) The Browns will match the offer sheet center Alex Mack signed with the Jaguars, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal is worth $42 million over five years with $26 million guaranteed and includes an opt-out for Mack after the second year of the deal. 

Jaguars officially sign Alex Mack to offer sheet


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) The Jaguars have signed transition-tagged free-agent center Alex Mack to a five-year, $42 million offer sheet per ESPN. The Browns have five days to match it or else they'll lose Mack to the Jaguars with no compensation. The deal includes $26 million guaranteed along with an out clause after two years with no ability to franchise him, just as CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday. 

There's an NFL Network report Friday that the Jaguars' offer made it tough on the Browns to match and that they're "really thinking over" their options. 


Alex Mack's offer sheet: Five years, $42M with voidable years


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora has the details on the offer sheet transition-tagged free agent Alex Mack will sign with the Jaguars this week. It's a five-year deal worth $42 million with a player option to void the deal after two seasons. The first two years guarantee $18 million total and the third year is worth another $8 million. 

And despite the expensive price tag the Jaguars put on Mack, the Browns are expected to match the deal and sign him to the same contract. 

The interesting wrinkle La Canfora notes is that the Browns could end up 'renting' Mack for two years and $18 million. He could opt out in 2016 and test free agency all over again. 


Source: Browns will match Jaguars' offer for Alex Mack


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) The Browns gave center Alex Mack the transitition tag in free agency to protect themselves from losing him. And even though the Jaguars agreed to terms with him on a five-year deal, a source tells ESPN that the Browns will match it "in no time at all."

Mack is considered one of the best centers in the league not only for his ability but for his durability -- he's never missed a snap in five seasons. 


Report: Jags making five-year offer to Alex Mack


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) The Jaguars will sign Browns transition player Alex Mack a five-year offer sheet by week's end, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Cleveland then will have five days to match, but Schefter says the deal will be designed "to make it as difficult as possible for the Browns to match."

A Pro Bowl center, Mack was highly impressed by his visit to Jacksonville and wants to play there, Schefter reported.


Browns likely to match any offer Alex Mack receives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Browns owner Jimmy Haslam suggested the team will match any offer Pro Bowl center Alex Mack receives, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Cleveland placed the transition tag on Mack last month.

The Jaguars have shown interest in Mack, but haven't yet made an offer.

"Well, there's no doubt he will be here at least for this year," Haslam told the paper. "I think that's for certain. I certainly hope we can sign him to a longterm deal and keep him here for much longer than I'm here."


Jaguars showing interest in Alex Mack


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) The Jaguars hosted Browns transition player Alex Mack this weekend and could make him an offer, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Cleveland intends to match any offer, "but the Jags have tremendous cap space and ample cash available to put together an offer that might be hard to match," the report said.

A Pro Bowl center, Mack wants to leave the Browns, sources told La Canfora. Cleveland put the $10.039 million transition tag on Mack, though he has yet to sign it.


Alex Mack appears likely to stay with Browns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) It's looking more and more like Pro Bowl center Alex Mack will return to the Browns under the $10.039 million transition tag, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Buccaneers and Ravens signed other free-agent centers, and the Browns have the cap space to match any offer Mack might still receive.

Mack has yet to sign his transition tag. He has until July 22 to do so.

“Alex is well within his rights to do the things that he thinks are necessary moving forward,” Browns general manager Ray Farmer told reporters at the league meetings. “We're still committed to making sure he's a long-term Brown, and that's really our focus. … I'm very confident (it can happen). It's the continued interaction, the continued support, the continued vibe that we're giving Alex that will inevitably prevail.”


Alex Mack says he will test free agency


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Even though the Browns put the transition tag on him, free agent center Alex Mack plans on seeing what's out there for him in free agency

Because of the tag, Mack could get an offer from any other team and the Browns could match it and retain him. 

"I have to be comfortable with that," Mack told USA Today. "It's their right. I have to weigh that into any potential decision. But I walked away from our meeting with the feeling it was a good meeting. Without a doubt, it's not a bad thing to return to the Browns. ... I still have an opportunity to meet with coaches and experience free agency. That's the goal. I like Cleveland; I know it. I like these new coaches. But there are other opportunities out there. You only get to play this game so long. Let's see what else is out there."


Six players get tagged for 2014


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Getting the franchise tag were Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, Jets kicker Nick Folk, Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy and Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo. Browns center Alex Mack and Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds were designated as transition players. 

The deadline for tagging players passed at 4 p.m. ET.


Browns put transition tag on center Alex Mack


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) The Browns put the transition tag on Pro Bowl center Alex Mack, giving Cleveland the chance to match any offer sheet he might sign, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The transition tag guarantees Mack the average of the 10 highest-paid offensive linemen, or $10.039 million.

Browns view re-signing Alex Mack as No. 1 priority


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The new Browns regime views re-signing free agent center Alex Mack as its No. 1 priority, reports NFL Network. Mack, 28, just made his second Pro Bowl.

Alex Mack won't negotiate with Browns until late February


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/19/2014) Pro Bowl center and free-agent-to-be Alex Mack won't renegotiate with the Browns until he comes back from a humanitarian mission in Brazil. ESPN reports Mack and the Browns will have two weeks to talk deal before he can be courted by other teams. During that time it is believed Mack will have questions about the future of the Browns franchise and will request face-to-face meetings to get his answers

"I think the most important thing is Alex really would want to meet the (new) coaches," his agent, Marv Demoff, said. "He was pretty close to (former offensive line coach George) Warhop, and liked (former head coach Rob) Chudzinski. Everything he had in Cleveland is changed. Warhop was a constant for five years. He's gone. There's a different head coach, different offensive coordinator, different offensive line coach. If you're looking at this from an intelligent point of view, there's more to it than money. You have to believe in what you're doing. I want Alex first to be able to sign off and say I'm fine with all the changes and where they're headed."


Browns have better chance to keep Alex Mack


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Tuesday's front office overhaul gives the Browns a better chance to retain Pro Bowl center Alex Mack, reports NFL Network. The report said Mack was frustrated with the old regime and what he deemed an unreasonable contract offer last season.

If Mack gets to free agency, the 28-year-old will be the top center on the market.


Report suggests Alex Mack will test free agency


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) The Browns have landed two first-teamers on the Associated Press All-Pro team despite their 4-12 record. Tackle Joe Thomas and wide receiver Josh Gordon both earned spots. Cornerback Joe Haden, safety T.J. Ward and center Alex Mack are all second-teamers.

Free agent Alex Mack not counting Browns out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack said he will "absolutely" give the team a chance to match any free agent offer he receives, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Being in Cleveland is nice," he said. "I have good friends on the team, I like the coaches, it's a nice place."

Mack has been entrenched as a starter since being selected in the first round of the 2009 draft. He could receive the franchise tag, though strong safety T.J. Ward, who is also a free agent, is also a strong possibility.


Joe Thomas: Browns shouldn't let Alex Mack walk


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Browns All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas said Wednesday that it would be a huge loss to lose Pro Bowl center Alex Mack to free agency in the offseason, per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. Thomas added that the team might then need to spend a first-round pick to fill the void.

The Browns own two first-round selections in 2014, but are expected to spend one on a quarterback and they have multiple other needs.


Alex Mack mum on whether Ndamukong Suh is a dirty player


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack declined to answer Thursday when asked if Week 6 matchup Ndamukong Suh is a dirty player, the Akron Beacon Journal is reporting.

Linemate Joe Thomas was a bit bolder on Wednesday, when he stated that he dislikes the way Suh plays because it breaks the rules of brotherhood that bond all NFL players.

Neither player will be greatly responsible for keeping Suh at bay on Sunday. That task will fall upon right tackle Shawn Lauvao.
