Report: Browns won’t be signing Alex Mack to extension right now

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports,  the Browns have not approached center Alex Mack about getting an extension done and Mack isn’t interested in negotiating anything right now.

Alex Mack has quietly become one of the premier centers in the NFL, and he is one of very few Browns players of note nearing the end of his contract. But the team made no attempts to extend him this offseason and Mack is not interested in talking in-season, according to a league source.

Mack, in the final year of his rookie deal and a former first-round pick, is focused on football at this point and not his contract, the source said. While he would have welcomed contract overtures over the summer, that is no longer the case now, until after the season. Mack could be a candidate for the franchise tag, of course.
