Mawae's Election as Union President Announced
The NFL Players Association made it official today and announced the election of Kevin Mawae as its president.
The Tennessee Titans center succeeds Troy Vincent, whose term expired. Mawae is to serve a two-year term.
"It is an honor to be elected president of the NFLPA by the board of player representatives and I will work hard to live up to their expectations," Mawae said in a written statement. "The players are well informed of the potential cancellation of the CBA by the owners. They are committed to doing what it takes to preserve our game."
Gene Upshaw, the union's executive director, said in a written statement: "The players made a great choice in electing Kevin Mawae as president. Kevin has always displayed leadership in his role as a player rep and an executive committee member. I look forward to working with Kevin and the new executive committee members to move forward with the initiatives set forth by the board of player reps in our meetings."
The union announced that its new executive committee will consist of newcomers Domonique Foxworth, Drew Brees and Mike Vrabel, and holdovers Brian Dawkins, Jeff Saturday, Mark Bruener, Tony Richardson, Kevin Carter, Keenan McCardell and Donovin Darius.
