- Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Browns C Alex Mack will likely opt out of his contract unless the team can reach an agreement on a reworked deal in the coming weeks.
- However, even if Mack were to opt out of his current deal, Cabot doesn’t rule out the possibility of him returning to Cleveland if they’re willing to offer him a market value deal.
Jamison Hensley identifies the three contracts signed by CB Lardarius Webb, LT Eugene Monroe, and TE Dennis Pitta as the three deals that have the Ravens in a tough cap situation.
- This group counts $25.9 million against the Ravens’ 2016 salary cap, but Hensley mentions that releasing them wouldn’t create much in terms of cap savings, as they would still carry $19 million in dead money.
- Webb could be moved to safety and asked to take a pay cut that’s more in line with a typical safety contract.
- As for Monroe, Hensley believes he could be a cap casualty or at least be asked to reduce his salary.
- While Pitta has said he wants to continue his career, Hensley suggests designating him as a post-June 1 release, which would give them $5 million to work with in June.
