Pro Bowl center will remain in Cleveland

Headline Goes Here

CLEVELAND, OH - The Mack attack is staying in Cleveland. The Browns matched the Jaguars' 5-year, $42 million offer to center Alex Mack on Friday afternoon. Cleveland had five days to match but they did not waste any time making up their minds.

Mack is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who could have bolstered the Jaguars' offensive line. Jacksonville needed help at the center position after the retirement of Brad Meester.

The new deal will pay Mack $26 million in guaranteed money including $10 million this season.
