The Denver Broncos have expressed interest in free agent center Kevin Mawae, reports NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora, citing a league source. Per La Canfora, the two sides have exchanged contact.
Mawae, 39, started in all 16 games for the Tennessee Titans last year.
After releasing the 37-year-old Casey Wiegmann in February, the Broncos might just get older at the position. At 289 lbs., the addition of a Mawae would be a lateral move if ever there was one. But the Broncos desperately need a veteran lineman to provide experience — or, at the very least, depth — at the position for whomever they draft.
We’re not thrilled with the idea, but we can’t slam the Broncos for kicking Mawae’s tires, either. If anything, it just amplifies how surprising it was to see Wiegmann let go weeks ago.
And it makes one wonder: when that decision was made, at what level of contingency planning was “Kevin Mawae?”
