Baltimore Ravens Acquire a Center, Likely Taking Them Out of the Alex Mack Consideration

The Ravens won't be making a play for C Alex Mack, but it's interesting to hear that the Browns were interesting in trading for the same player that Baltimore just acquired.

One of the teams who had been rumored to have an interest in trying to make a play for C Alex Mack were the Baltimore Ravens. More evidence of that fact came down today, when they acquired center Jeremy Zuttah from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick. After the trade was completed, Aaron Wilson of Ravens Insider reported that the team would have liked Mack, but thought it would have been too difficult to pull off:

What is interesting though is this tweet from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, who says that the Browns were a team that was also interested in acquiring Zuttah:

I wouldn't take that as a sign that the Browns were looking to replace Mack this year, but they could have viewed Zuttah as a possible starting guard and future center if things didn't work out with Mack. The fact that they were trying to acquire a guard/center means that with all of the draft picks they have remaining, they could be looking to make a deal with another organization before the draft.
