While Browns fans are still hopeful that center Alex Mack will return to the team, those chances appear to be getting slimmer, as reports out now say that Mack is being sought after by the NFC South’s Atlanta Falcons.
Mack, who was set to make $8 million this upcoming season for the Browns, opted out of the remaining three years of his contract last week.
Jason Cole of Bleacher Report reported that the Falcons have ‘Big’ interest in Mack. The Falcons offensive line the last few years has been awful, not being able to protect quarterback Matt Ryan.
If Mack bails for another team, there’s a center that will be on the market that the Browns could go after, that being Jaguars center Stefen Wisniewski.
Wisniewski was drafted by the Raiders in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He’s 6-foot-3, 305 pounds, and he’s also started games at left guard.
He’s started all 77 regular-season games in which he has appeared.
