Andrew Hawkins 'ready to bust out of his shell'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins, who wasn't used much in Cincinnati, "is ready to bust out of his shell," according to the team's website. "The extra attention Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron automatically command will leave large chunks of the field open for the taking," the report said.

New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan likes to call wide receiver screens, a play Hawkins can exploit. After catching just 86 passes in three seasons in Cincinnati, Hawkins will get a chance to prove "he’s more than just a pinch hitter" in Cleveland, the website said.

Jaguars officially sign Alex Mack to offer sheet
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jaguars have signed transition-tagged free-agent center Alex Mack to a five-year, $42 million offer sheet per ESPN. The Browns have five days to match it or else they'll lose Mack to the Jaguars with no compensation. The deal includes $26 million guaranteed along with an out clause after two years with no ability to franchise him, just as CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday. 

There's an NFL Network report Friday that the Jaguars' offer made it tough on the Browns to match and that they're "really thinking over" their options.

Alex Mack's offer sheet: Five years, $42M with voidable years
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora has the details on the offer sheet transition-tagged free agent Alex Mack will sign with the Jaguars this week. It's a five-year deal worth $42 million with a player option to void the deal after two seasons. The first two years guarantee $18 million total and the third year is worth another $8 million. 

And despite the expensive price tag the Jaguars put on Mack, the Browns are expected to match the deal and sign him to the same contract. 

The interesting wrinkle La Canfora notes is that the Browns could end up 'renting' Mack for two years and $18 million. He could opt out in 2016 and test free agency all over again.
