Mawae won't take early visits in free agency

Kevin Mawae probably won’t be making any free agent visits early in the process, even though there is some interest in him already.

“Kevin doesn’t really need to take any visits. He already knows pretty much everybody in the league and it isn’t his style to go make a bunch of visits and be wined and dined,” agent Mark Bartelstein said. “He’s got some things going on with his family, and when the time comes he’ll make his decision, whether it’s to sign back with the Titans or to sign somewhere else.”

Bartelstein indicated that if a situation arises where serious conversations with another team take place, it is possible Mawae could visit there.

It isn’t the first time Mawae has been in this situation. Shortly after being a salary cap cut by the New York Jets in 2006, Mawae actually agreed to terms with the Titans while he was in Hawaii, rather than in Nashville.

Mawae, 39, could be an attractive option for a team like the Denver Broncos, who need help on the offensive line.

Mawae and Bartelstein both said finding a team that has serious Super Bowl aspirations is a top priority for the 16-year veteran, who still has yet to reach the championship game.
