Mort & Schefter: More uncertainty in Cleveland

Cleveland nearly bid goodbye to Joe Thomas this week, passing on a trade that would have sent its left tackle and a mid-round pick to Denver exchange for a first- and second-round pick.

But while the Browns held on to their rock, Cleveland is getting closer to losing Pro-Bowl center Alex Mack to another team in free agency -- and there's nothing the Browns can do about it thanks to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville was the team that signed Mack to a five-year, $42 million offer sheet in April 2014. Cleveland eventually matched the deal, despite how unfavorable and distasteful some of the contractual terms were.
