Browns Pull Offer To Mitchell Schwartz

The Browns are on the verge of losing center Alex Mack to the Falcons, and now their negotiations with another one of their free agent offensive lineman could be hitting a wall. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (Twitter link), Cleveland has pulled its offer to right tackle Mitchell Schwartz.Mitchell Schwartz

Less than an hour ago, conflicting reports popped up regarding Schwartz’s status, as Mary Kay Cabot of reported that Schwartz had a decent chance to return to the Browns at a salary around $7.5MM, while Mike Silver of disagreed, saying the Schwartz would not return to Cleveland. Suffice it so stay, the situation appears fluid, and it’s probably premature to assume that Schwartz’s tenure is definitely complete.

As Florio notes in his tweet, the Browns could be merely posturing by rescinding their offer to Schwartz. It’s possible that the club believes it’s negotiating against itself, or at least offering more money than other interested clubs. By pulling the offer, Cleveland could be hoping to back Schwartz into accepting whatever price was most recently on the table.

      I mean… it was probably Sashi Brown that pulled it, right? (Haha, thanks — fixed).

        Touché! I was thinking Brown of the Bengals… The guy is cheap so thought maybe he was pulling offers for other teams now
