Jacksonville Jaguars to Sign Center Alex Mack to Offer Sheet


According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jacksonville Jaguars plan on signing veteran center Alex Mack to a 5-year offer sheet by Friday.

Alex Mack was given the transition tag by the Cleveland Browns, which means Cleveland will have 5 days to match it. Apparently general manager David Caldwell really wants Mack, because the contract is supposedly structured in such a way that it will be difficult for the Browns to match.

It’s reassuring to hear reports that Mack would prefer to play in Jacksonville, and this would certainly be a huge boost to the Jaguars this year and beyond. Mack is a long term solution at center, and he would be a valuable resource for a young quarterback if the Jaguars opted to draft one high this year.

We should know relatively soon if Mack will be a Jaguar, but Caldwell has given the Browns a lot to think about despite owner Jimmy Haslam saying earlier they will match any contract.
