I was listening to a radio station out of Cleveland and they claim their are 3 teams in on Mack. Cleveland, Baltimore and Green Bay. Not sure where they get their info but just thought I would throw it out there.

If that's accurate, I am shocked beyond belief!!

I would be shocked too. What's the highest pick you would trade assuming Mack signed a reasonable deal?

Can he even be traded?  Thought the transition tag meant that a team could offer him a contract, then the Browns could match it and keep him or not match and let him go.  Since the tag is $10mil for this year, seriously doubt the Pack does anything.  If I'm missing something, and I've done that a lot, please advise.  Thanks.

The $10M is ONLY IF Mack signs the transition tag and it mean that he plays for Cleveland for that $10M.

Being designated at this time means Cleveland has the right of first refusal or can match and retain him.

He has not signed the tag at this time (I think he has until July sometime to sign it), so teams can make make offers and if he signs an offer sheet (for whatever amount it is), Cleveland has the right to keep him or let him go without compensation.

Cleveland currently has about $40M in cap space so it's most likely they would match any offer that comes his way.
