Browns clear Alex Mack to participate in training camp


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Browns center Alex Mack has been cleared to participate in training camp drills, reports ESPN.com. Mack is recovering from a broken leg, which ended his season in Week 6.

Browns C Alex Mack expresses uncertainty over opt-out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Browns center Alex Mack has stated that he has "absolutely not" made a decision as to whether he will opt out of his contract after this year, the Akron Beacon Journal has reported. He added that winning is an important factor, but declined to elaborate on his contract situation.

Mack has been considered by some a sure bet to leave the team following the season. It's believed that's one reason the team selected potential replacement Cameron Erving in the first round of the 2015 draft.


Browns' Thomas says Alex Mack will probably opt out after 2015


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) With Browns center Alex Mack possessing an opt-out clause in his contract after the 2015 season, fellow offensive lineman Joe Thomas said it's not a coincidence Mack has an option to leave the team, reports ESPNCleveland.com.

"I haven't really had any conversations with Alex, but I will say I'm sure there's a reason he put that clause in his contract, because this is going to be an important year for the Browns to prove the things they said to him during the recruiting process, prove they were true," Thomas said. "So I imagine that we're going to have to have a good season, we're going to have to show to Alex that we're moving in the right direction, or I'm sure he'll probably… there's no downside to declaring himself a free agent after this year because worst-case scenario, I guess, he can just resign with the Browns if he wanted. So I wouldn't be surprised if he decides to opt out and become a free agent at the end of the year."

Mack has spent the last the six seasons as the starting center for the Browns. His 2014 season ended after five games when he suffered a broken leg.


Browns C Alex Mack to participate in OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/2015) Browns center Alex Mack, who's rehabbing from a broken leg suffered in Week 6 last year, will take part in OTAs, though it's unclear to what extent, reports ESPN.com. Mack, 29, is a key to Cleveland's running game.

The team averaged 146.4 rushing yards with him, 90.5 without him, per the website.

“We’re making some pretty steady progress, doing what we need to do to get out there for training camp,” Mack said. “But it’s more important that I’m out there for game day. Those two feelings have to balance out. It just takes time, having patience. Two weeks after the surgery, I wanted to be up and running around. I’m not 18 anymore.”


Browns' Mike Pettine: Alex Mack on track with rehab


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Browns coach Mike Pettine said center Alex Mack is on track with his rehab process and should be able to return to the practice field for spring activities, via the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Mack's season ended early after breaking his leg in a game against the Steelers last October. After initially hoping that Mack could return after eight to 10 weeks, the Browns were forced to put Mack on season-ending injured reserve after surgery.

Until this year, Mack never missed a start in five seasons. Due to his broken leg, Mack sat out 11 games in 2014.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine said Monday if center Alex Mack just sustained a broken fibula, then he could be back in 8-10 weeks, according to Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. However, if he sustained ligament damage, then he will miss the rest of the season.

Report: Browns C Alex Mack has broken left leg


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Mike Pettine has announced that an early diagnosis on Pro Bowl center Alex Mack is a broken left leg. Mack sustained the injury in the second quarter of the Sunday win against Pittsburgh.

His loss, which marked the first time he has missed a snap since joining the Browns, necessitated moving John Greco from guard to center and Paul McQuistan into the starting lineup.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The lower leg injury sustained by Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack against Pittsburgh in the second quarter Sunday will keep him out for the rest of the game.

Browns C Alex Mack injures ankle and leaves game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Browns Pro Bowl center Alex Mack has been carted off after sustaining a left ankle injury in the second quarter of the Sunday game against Pittsburgh. His absence marks the first time he has missed a snap in his career.

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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst

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.
