And just like that, thoughts of a union between the Denver Broncos and the acting president of the NFL Players Association have been quashed.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post blogs that, while the Broncos may have “expressed interest” in center Kevin Mawae, Denver isn’t seriously pursuing the 39-year-old free agent. In fact, Klis states that, per a league source, a deal won’t happen.
The reasoning is as we documented — center Casey Wiegmann was released over two concerns: size and age. With the Broncos moving to a power blocking scheme, Mawae is an improvement in neither.
And if you decide you’re going in a different direction, it doesn’t make much sense to replace a player with another headed in the same one.
