Kevin Mawae could be a Titan again

On March 5, center Kevin Mawae became an unrestricted free agent.  The Titans weren’t interested in bringing him back as a starter, so he looked elsewhere.

And he found nothing.

So now, Mawae is talking to the Titans about returning as a backup, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

“We are working on it,” agent Mark Bartelstein told Wyatt.  “Mike knows that Kevin would
love to be back and we are just trying to work on something that would
make sense for everybody.  But he knows how Kevin feels about being in
Tennessee and being a part of the Titans.  We are hoping that something
can be worked out.”

Mawae, a 16-year veteran, spent the last four in Tennessee, starting all but three games.  He also has played for the Seahawks and the Jets.

There has been speculation that Mawae’s role as NFLPA President during the worst labor climate since 1987 has affected his job search.  No one would admit whether that’s a factor, but how could it not be?

    I wonder why the Eagles didn’t at least considered Mawae. It could be great insurance for Jamaal Jackson?
    So he’s old.. But he could properly hold it down until Jackson was good to go..

    well with last years release of Brian Dawkins and releasing Darren Howard, the trade of Sheldon Brown and getting rid of Jevon Kearse, its pretty obvious the Eagles don’t like to keep ‘old’ guys

    Ranked by his peers as the 4th dirtiest player in the league, but also voted president?

    Join the union and expect to be loved by the owners? Get real.

    Why would his involvement with the NFLPA have anything to do with his on-field play?
    Why do you spin such garbage?

    What happened in Denver? Pat Bowlen said they were interested in him. We just cut our center, he’d look good in orange and blue!

    C’mon Eagles what are you doing? Here is a great center, a bit old, but good enough. As good or better than the ailing Jamaal Jackson. Makes no sense to me right now what the Eagles are doing.

    Hello people this is a RUMOR site, provides leads, thoughts, underlying circumstances, sometimes RUMORS not always FACT… Yes they make assumptions, guess at intentions, try to figure out motive because pro football is such a shady game… atleast the business side, anyhow the moral of the story is PROFOOTBALLTALK.COM is the best pro football site out there. Do a little test… find a signing or arrest or something that just happened on another website (regarding profootball, obviously) then come here… I bet that story is on the front page…. if not it’s a page or two back (meaning they reported on this hours ago)
    any how this is already to long
    HAIL SKINS!

    Florio, this has to be wrong, just wrong.
    You stated two weeks ago that the Broncos would sign Mawae BECAUSE they were in desperate need of a center.
    Well your ass overloaded your mouth AGAIN.

    @ceetown22;
    Hey dipshit…why don’t you enlighten all of us as to why a team would purposely not sign Mawae because he was the President of the NFLPA….come on Mr brilliant IT man, lol…the fact that you work in IT explains your arogant, righteous attitude…..lol

  11. LL Live says: Apr 2, 2010 11:08 PM

    Not a lot of centers with their AARP cards…that could have something to do with it…maybe it should at least be mentioned, you know, if you were going for fair and balanced…you know, like Faux News…

    Mixing football with politics?
    It’s definitely the offseason!
    Mawae only has a year left before retirement per Madden 10, retire a Titan Kevin!

    Surprised the Bears didn’t grab him, they have so much luck with free-agent OL past their prime.
