Browns slap Mack with Transition tag

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Browns have place their transition tag on center Alex Mack, meaning they have the right to match any offer he receives from another team.

The transition tag for centers this year is just over $10 million, which is around $1 million less than Mack would have made if they had used the franchise tag on him. If he receives an offer that the Browns choose not to match, and he signs with another team, they do not receive any compensation in the draft.

Mack, a two-time Pro Bowler, has started every game since being drafted by the team in the first round of the 2009 draft.
