Mack remained with Cleveland after the team quickly matched the five-year, $42 million offer sheet he signed from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday. The deal makes Mack the NFL's highest-paid center and allows him to test free agency again after two seasons.
Analysis: For now, though, Mack is with the Browns and he said Monday that's looking forward to helping turn around a franchise that has endured six straight seasons of at least 11 losses. Mack disputed reports that he wanted out of Cleveland, saying "there's a business side of football, it's positioning." Mack would like to see more stability with the Browns, who fired coach Rob Chudzinski after just one season. Mike Pettine will be Mack's fourth coach in six seasons.

The Browns have five days to match and are expected to do so. Cleveland secured that right after placing a $10 million transition tag on Mack before free agency opened. Based on reports, it's a five-year, $42 million offer.
Analysis: The team entered free agency with re-signing Mack as a top priority. On Tuesday night, owner Jimmy Haslam said he was optimistic "Alex Mack will be a Cleveland Brown for a long time." Mack has played 4,998 consecutive snaps since he was drafted by Cleveland in 2009. He made his second Pro Bowl last season.

Analysis: Mack recently visited with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have not yet offered him a contract. The Browns would have five days to match any offer to Mack, who was tagged as Cleveland's transition player before free agency began. Mack can play next season in Cleveland for $10 million. Pettine calls Mack's situation "fluid" and says there's some optimism the Browns may hold onto the Pro Bowler because "nothing has happened so far."

Analysis: By using the transition tag, Cleveland will have five days to match any offer to Mack by other teams. If the Browns had used their franchise tag on Mack, he would have made $11.654 million next season.
