Chiefs released ILB Josh Mauga.
Mauga was a starter in 2014-15, but missed all of 2016 with a shoulder injury. He languished on the open market until July, and didn't show enough in the first five weeks of camp to earn a roster spot. Now on the wrong side of 30, Mauga's career could be winding down. Mon, Aug 28, 2017 01:01:00 PM

Chiefs re-signed ILB Josh Mauga and S Steven Terrell.

Mauga started 30 games between 2014-15, but missed all of 2016 with a torn labrum in his shoulder. He turned 30 last month. He's an experienced Chiefs hand who will have a legitimate shot at cracking the 53-man roster.
Thu, Jul 6, 2017 06:12:00 PM

The Chiefs' official site listed ILB Josh Mauga as an unrestricted free agent.

Mauga reportedly signed a three-year deal prior to the 2015 season, but it is possible those reports were wrong or the contract included a voidable year. Mauga missed all of 2016 with a torn labrum, and he has proven to be a replacement-level starter at best. Going on 30, Mauga likely will not break the bank if he hits the open market.

Chiefs ILB Josh Mauga is out for the season with a torn labrum in his shoulder.

It's a big blow to Kansas City's defense, which will also be minus OLB Justin Houston (knee) for the first six games. Mauga isn't a difference maker inside, but he is coming off a solid season as a 14-game starter. Next to Derrick Johnson, Ramik Wilson is listed behind Mauga on the depth chart at inside linebacker.

Chiefs re-signed ILB Josh Mauga to a three-year, $8 million contract.

It's a surprisingly high price for a player who struggled mightily when pressed into action at inside linebacker last season. Mauga was a major part of the Chiefs' leaky run defense. Best suited as a special teamer, Mauga will ostensibly stay in the mix to start next to Derrick Johnson in 2015.
Fri, Mar 6, 2015 02:15:00 PM

Chiefs ILB Josh Mauga will start opposite Derrick Johnson in Week 1.

Mauga will get the first chance at replacing Joe Mays (wrist, I.R.), who isn't eligible to return until Week 10. Third-year LB James-Michael Johnson is also expected see an increase in snaps.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 02:05:00 PM

Chiefs signed LB Josh Mauga.

Mauga spent the last four seasons with the Jets, appearing in 29 games and making one start. He missed all of last season due to a back injury. Mauga will fight for a special teams role with the Chiefs.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 11:05:00 AM

Jets placed LB Josh Mauga (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Jets are down to three inside linebackers with Nick Bellore behind David Harris and Demario Davis.
Sun, Sep 1, 2013 05:18:00 PM

Jets re-signed LB Josh Mauga to a one-year contract.

Mauga was set to be a restricted free agent, but he had no chance of getting even the lowest tender. The Jets likely re-upped with him for the league minimum with no guaranteed money. Mauga will battle for a special teams role.
Sat, Mar 9, 2013 06:49:00 PM

The Jets won't tender an offer to restricted free agent LB Josh Mauga.

Mauga tore his pectoral in Week 5 and missed the remainder of the season, but he's expected to be ready for training camp. Largely a special teamer, he's recorded 44 tackles and an interception in 29 career games.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Jets placed LB Josh Mauga on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, ending his season.

Mauga is a special teamer and reserve linebacker. He played 52 defensive snaps before going down. The Jets have signed DT Daniel Muir to take his roster spot. A fourth year undrafted free agent, Mauga will be a restricted free agent in the offseason.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 01:24:00 PM

Jets LB Josh Mauga is out for the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Monday's game.

A special teamer and top reserve at linebacker, Mauga had played 52 defensive snaps through five games. He's a restricted free agent in 2013.
Tue, Oct 9, 2012 04:15:00 PM

Jets signed LB Josh Mauga from their practice squad.

He'll trade places with Kenwin Cummings, who was demoted to the practice squad after a special teams gaffe in Week 6.
