The Jacksonville Jaguars are attempting to sign Alex Mack and take him away from the Cleveland Browns.
According to ESPN, the Jaguars will sign the Pro Bowl center to a 5-year offer sheet by Friday. The deal will make Mack the highest-paid center in the NFL.
The deal will reportedly give Mack around $9 million a year with around $22 million guaranteed, according to Cleveland.com. Under the terms of the transition tag that was placed on Mack in Cleveland, the Browns will have five business days to match the Jaguars' offer. The Browns are very likely to match the offer.
According to Cleveland.com, Jimmy Haslam, owner of the Cleveland Browns, told reporters Tuesday the he will match any offer the Jaguars make to Mack, saying, "We want Alex to be a Cleveland Brown."
Mack reportedly does not want to play in Cleveland anymore because they decided not to give him a long-term deal he thought he deserved and also because they used the transition tag on him instead of the franchise tag, ESPN reports.
If the Browns do decide to match the offer the Jaguars give to Mack, he will have no other choice but to play in Cleveland.
