Browns and First-Round Pick Alex Mack Come to Terms

Browns Camp Football
The Browns have inked first-round pick Alex Mack according to Pro Football Talk, though nothing official has come from the Browns on it. Here’s the story on their end:

After an unexpected delay once Browns first-round pick Alex Mack showed up Friday with a deal supposedly in place, a league source tells us that Mack has finally agreed to terms.

The problem, we’re told, is that the Browns’ have a new contract negotiator, which created confusion as to some of the terms and wording.

Per the source, Mack will receive guaranteed money (including the option bonus) representing a 12.2 percent increase over the same spot in 2008. [Editor’s note: We initially misunderstood our source, and accidentally described the deal as having $12.2 million in guaranteed money. We apologize for the error.] The increase over the contract given to last year’s 21st overall pick is roughly 7.5 percent, when comparing the core deals.

So it’s three down, 29 to go in round one.
