Mawae says Fisher guaranteed him roster spot

Kevin Mawae is still a man without a team, and with each passing day it looks less likely that any future employment will come from his former team, the Titans.

Mawae said he’s not bitter when he opened up recently in an interview with The Tennessean, but did say that amid the changes on the offensive line by the Titans, he was promised a roster spot by coach Jeff Fisher.

“It’s a classic example of the coach and general manager not talking to one another, or the coach telling me one thing and them making another decision down the road. I am not surprised by it,” Mawae said. “Jeff told me in April he guaranteed me a roster spot. Those were his exact words, ‘I guarantee that you have a roster spot.’ He said that to me twice. But apparently Jeff is not doing contracts. It would be great if the two were on the same page instead of sending me mixed signals.”

Mawae went on to say that the most frustrating part was that his agent couldn’t get the Titans to return a call. While Fisher called the door for a return “still open,” Mawae also has his supporters — OT Michael Roos wore Mawae’s No. 68 jersey to practice on Sunday, according to Jim Wyatt.
