The additional guaranteed money in ’16 for Mack is upwards of $4 million, lg source said.
The deal includes $18 million over the first two seasons. Mack can opt out of the contract after 2015, and could not be franchise tagged. It’s a creative clause, but hardly a roadblock to the Browns matching Jacksonville’s offer. Mack is expected to officially sign on Friday. Cleveland is fully expected to match.

I would not be surprised if the Browns match this offer sheet.
