Roundup: Titans may keep Mawae after all

Titans center Kevin Mawae became a free agent on March 5, and it seemed the 39-year-old was ready to move on from the team he’d played with for the last four seasons. But Mawae’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told The Tennessean that he’s been in serious talks with the Titans this week to re-sign Mawae as a backup.

    “Kevin has made it clear from the beginning he would love to be back there, that is his first choice,” he said. “We have expressed that to them. … Kevin could get a job with anybody, it’s just a matter of us figuring out a role and how different scenarios play out.”

At the start of the offseason, the Titans decided to go younger on their offensive line, preparing Eugene Amano to start in place of Mawae, who is entering his 17th season.
