The center leaves a big void in San Francisco’s offensive line.
Aged 36 and after 13 seasons in the NFL, Alex Mack has decided to end his career. Drafted in the first round in 2009 by the Browns, he continued his career with the Falcons before joining the 49ers last season. The information was relayed by Michael Silver of Bally Sports.
On the side of San Francisco, quarterbacks Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo see their protection weaken significantly. Indeed, the franchise now has two inexperienced centers with Jake Brendel, 37 games played but only 3 as a starter, and Dohnovan West, an undrafted rookie.
Considered one of the best centers of the last decade, Mack appeared in 196 games, all as a starter, was selected 7 times for the Pro Bowl and named 3 times to the All-Pro second team.
