First stint with Tampa Bay BuccaneersEdit

In his rookie year, he made most of his appearances on special teams and made his NFL debut at the Atlanta Falcons on September 21. Throughout the next three season, Mahan played in every single game for the Buccaneers and in 2005 was part of the offensive line that helped Carnell Williams to the NFL Rookie of the Year.

Mahan was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers on March 12, 2007 to a five year 17 million dollar deal.[1]

Second stint with Tampa Bay BuccaneersEdit

After a disappointing year at center for the Steelers, and the signing of free agent Justin Hartwig, on September 2, 2008, Mahan was traded back to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 7th Round 2009 NFL Draft pick.[2] He was informed of his release on September 2, 2009. He was re-signed on September 14. He was released again on October 27.
