NFL Rumors: Alex Mack to sign five-year offer sheet with Jacksonville Jaguars


The Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping a five-year commitment to center Alex Mack will be enough to scare the Cleveland Browns away as Adam Schefter reports the veteran Mack is prepared to sign the multi-year offer sheet with the Jaguars by the end of the week.

According to Schefter, Mack does not want to play for the Browns and is ready to move on to the Jaguars.

Sources close to Alex Mack say he wants to play this contract in Jacksonville, not Cleveland, which opted not to give him long-term deal. To recap: Alex Mack highly impressed with Jacksonville, wants to play there, will sign 5-year offer sheet by end of week, per ESPN sources.

Of course, it won’t be that easy for Mack and the Jaguars as Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslem has come out and stated that he would match any offer for Mack, though was he really expecting a five-year deal?

Probably not.

The deal is expected to be signed no later than Friday and the Browns will then have five days to match the transition tag offer.
