Browns could lose center Alex Mack; Jags will sign him to offer sheet

Alex Mack could be on his way out in Cleveland.  The former Cal center is really loving what he hears from the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff as well as players.  According to Adam Schefter Alex Mack will sign an offer sheet by the end of this week.  Schefter claims the Jaguars are going to make it very difficult for the Browns to match.  If Alex Mack is signed to an offer sheet the Browns will have 8 calendar days to match the offer.  If they do not match the offer the team will not be rewarded anything.
