Alex Mack: The Colts have my attention

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports that Alex Mack is very interested in possibly becoming a teammate of Andrew Luck and the Colts.

It appears that the attention the Indianapolis Colts have shown to center Alex Mack of the Cleveland Browns, has certainly gotten his attention. Mack told Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star:

"Anytime a player has a chance to talk with a team with a proven record like the Colts, (with) a quarterback and other weapons of the caliber Indy has, it certainly catches your attention," Mack said.

The Colts are one of possibly four teams looking to sign the Pro Bowl center, who had the transition tag slapped on him by the Cleveland front office back on March 3rd. General manager Ryan Grigson has roughly $17 million left in cap space to address several roster holes on his team, including the center position. Veteran center Samson Satele was released on Tuesday, leaving a gaping hole in the middle of Indy's already porous offensive line.

Mack had a +17.8 rating as a center last year, according to Pro Football Focus' signature stats (subscription-only). He was the 4th best center ranked by PFF last year, and overwhelmingly the best snapper to hit the free agent market in 2014.

Because of the transition tag, the Browns have the right to match any offer the Colts, or any other team, signs Mack to.
