Undoubtedly, center Alex Mack has been one of the best players on the Cleveland Browns. For some reason Mack has no want to return to the team. He has yet to sign any offer sheet the Browns have prepared for him, and he wants out.
You could understand, Mack’s decision if the team hadn’t made all the changes to the team’s front office this off-season. But the Browns have recommitted themselves to winning. They went out and made some great free agent signings and they are trying to build a play-off caliber team.
What did the team do to make Mack have ill feelings? This is the million dollar question. Mack has always been treated well while playing for the Browns. The team seemed to appreciate his efforts, and they gave him a 10.3 million dollar offer, when they put the transition tag on him.
But Mack still doesn’t seem to want to return the the Cleveland Browns. Why? Why is Mack being so stubborn? He is one of the guys that has played every game for the Browns since he was drafted by the team.
He doesn’t have to live through another Weeden season, and the team is going to be competitive this season. Mack should want to finish what he started with the Browns. But that isn’t the case.
Alex Mack seems to be holding a grudge. If only we could understand why. The team is trying to reach out to the center, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting Mack’s decision.
Something had to take place to piss off Alex Mack. If only we knew what that was, it would be easier to understand. Nothing would be worse for the Browns than to have a guy playing center that doesn’t want to be here.
