Kevin Mawae appears primed to leave the Tennessee Titans and become a free agent on March 5th. Whether the Chiefs show an interest in him remains to be seen but nearly the entire Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff is familiar with him.
Mawae signed a free agent contract with the Jets in 1998, a team that employed these current Chiefs:
GM Scott Pioli, Head coach Todd Haley, OC Charlie Weis, DC Romeo Crennel, OL coach Bill Muir, DL coach Anthony Pleasant, RBs coach Maurice Carthon and WRs coach Richie Anderson.
If the Chiefs show an interest in him, it could speak of Rudy Niswanger's future. Mawae, 39, has age going against him in a big way but Pioli and Co. haven't shied away from veterans over the past year so it's not unreasonable to think they might take a look.
If the Chiefs take a peek at a 39 year old center, it likely means confidence in Niswanger is dropping.
