I know this is a Mack topic but…I think this is just the beginning! What do you think Gordon is going to want! Go Browns!

Secondly the two teams that seem to be the most major players linked, to Mack are Indy (who signed a center yesterday...) and the Ravens, who I think after Pitta and Monroe are no longer in strong enough financial position to "go there" with us....

I think Mack eventually signs his tender, both sides rock a 1 year, wait and see approach....Mack fits and likes it...Long term next offseason...if not...Franchise and trade...

I like MasterCheddars last post in here....looks like we need to get him on our Front Office negotiating team Laughing


Your only looking at cap room this year.

They could do something similar to the Byrd contract. Structure it in such a way that the guarenteed money and hard cap hits come in 2015 and 2016 (this is the big one as this is when Gordon is a FA).

So they could sign Mack to a 6 year 60M deal. Base salary in year 1 is 3M with no bonuses.
Base in year 2 is 13M with a 3M roster bonus (for 16M total and 19M total). Then they can structure year 3 with a 20M base with 6M roster bonus (45M of the total contract) then year 4 have a 7M cap hit, year 5 and 8M and year 6 2M

I do think that is a good example of how a team could structure a deal to screw over Cleveland, but if the Colts (or whomever) would be willing to pay an average of 10M per year, then regardless of how they structure it, they can have him.
