Titans settle with ex-center Mawae on $114K workers' comp claim

Friday, September 7, 2012 at 1:59pm

The Tennessee Titans along with former center Kevin Mawae filed a joint petition in Davidson County Circuit Court Friday morning to approve workers’ compensation settlement.

According to the filings, Mawae will receive a lump sum of $114,000 for injuries sustained during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The compensation includes injuries to Mawae’s shoulders, elbows, wrists, right thumb and lower back.

A doctor determined in July that Mawae had diminished range of motion in several of his affected extremities.

In addition to the financial compensation, the Titans have agreed to provide future “reasonable and necessary medical treatment” for his elbow, shoulder and back injuries.

Mawae played for 16 years in the NFL, including five for the Titans. He was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, including in the 2009 season when he helped pave the way for running back Chris Johnson's historic 2,006 rushing yards. He retired from the NFL in September 2010.

According to the court filings, Mawae now lives in Baton Rouge, La., where he graduated from college at LSU.

He also was president of the NFL Players Union which opposed drug testing, and anything else to clean up the sport. Then, he hammered owners repeatedly then whined when nobody wanted him in his twilight years.

I have little respect for this man. Take your money and go.

Yes, it is a physical job. What did Muwae think he was geting paid that astronomic salary for? Now he wants more? Spoiled brats all of them. Buy your own insurance with all that 1% money.

Go Dores, Preds, Titans! Go Nashville a great place to live!

wow. Because someone is in a union, or earns a lot of money, you all think his job related injuries should be exempt from the same law that protects everyone else? Please correct me, but I am under the impression that one can not sign away a law with an employment contract.

Kevin Mawae as the former President of the Players Union learned a great deal about how to pull on Supermans cape. Now he should run for office at the ACLU and be an advisor toe NAACP
