BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns center Alex Mack says it would be easy for him to re-sign with Cleveland, as long as the team wants him back.
Mack, who has not missed a single snap in his five seasons with the Browns, is eligible for free agency this winter. The former first-round pick said he enjoys his teammates and coaches. He's made the most of playing in Cleveland despite the team's continued struggles.
Mack said Friday that he has considered that this Sunday's game in Pittsburgh could be his final one in the Browns-Steelers rivalry.
Mack isn't the only high-profile Browns player who could be elsewhere in 2014. Safety T.J. Ward is also eligible for free agency and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson is due a $4 million roster bonus in March. Jackson said he would be ''absolutely'' shocked if he wasn't with the Browns next season.
