Mauga finished the 2015 regular season with 58 tackles (46 solo), one sack and two interceptions.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Playing alongside Derrick Johnson, Mauga made a slight impact of his own on the inside, thous he was no where near his counterpart's 116 tackles. It's possible the Chiefs will look to add some depth on the inside prior to the 2016 campaign, but Mauga is currently in line to retain the starting role.

Mauga notched nine solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Mauga was all over the field on Sunday in a sloppy high-scoring affair with the Bills. The sixth-year linebacker tallied his season high in tackles with nine, on a day where the majority of the Chiefs' defenders struggled. Don't expect numbers like this on a regular basis, however, as Mauga only has 36 tackles on the season and holds minimal IDP value compared to others at the position.

The Chiefs have re-signed Mauga to a three-year contract worth approximately $8 million, per ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The contract indicates that Mauga will start at inside linebacker next to Derrick Johnson, who missed nearly the entire 2014 season after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1. While Johnson is the player for IDP owners to target, Mauga did manage 103 tackles (82 solo) over 16 games in 2014, albeit with minimal secondary statistics.

Mauga recorded eight tackles (four solo), a half-sack, and a tackle for loss in the regular season finale against the Chargers.

Mauga entered 2014 as a backup to Derrick Johnson and Joe Mays at inside linebacker, but injuries to both handed the starting job to he and James-Michael Johnson. Mauga took advantage of his opportunity to the tune of 103 tackles (82 solo) and a half-sack, which came in Week 17. He enters the offseason as a free agent, and while it seems unlikely he will return to the Chiefs as a starter with both Derrick Johnson and Joe Mays set to return, he may have set himself up for a multi-year deal with his performance.
