A Couple More Notes on Alex Mack and the Transition Tag

On Monday, the Cleveland Browns put the transition tag on C Alex Mack. We covered a few of the details of what that meant here, but here are a few more notes to be aware of:

  • Starting March 11 at 4:00 PM, Mack can negotiate with other clubs if he so chooses to. If Mack signs an offer sheet with another team, though, he better have the mindset of, "I'm prepared to return to the Browns for the next five-six years," because chances are, Cleveland will match the offer. Mack can't sign an offer sheet from another team and then say, "oh, never mind, I'll just stick with the one-year tag" once Cleveland decides to match the offer.

  • At any point, Mack can sign his transition tag, which would guarantee his one-year salary and also prevent him from negotiating with other teams until 2015.

  • After July 22 and until 4:00 PM on the Tuesday following the 10th week of the season (November 11), the Browns would have exclusive negotiating rights to Mack, meaning they can work out a long-term deal.
