Ravens Sign DT Ma’ake Kemoeatu

Kemo Returns to Bmore But, Can He Still Play?

The Baltimore Ravens have signed veteran nose guard Ma’ake Kemoeatu.

Kemoeatu, 33, last played for the Ravens in 2005 before joining the Carolina Panthers after that season via a five-year, $23 million contract that included a $6 million signing bonus

He signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Washington Redskins two years ago and started 12 games and recorded 29 tackles.

However, Kemoeatu didn’t play at all last season after being released by the Redskins on July 28, 2011. He has dealt with serious Achilles tendon and shoulder injuries.

The 6-foot-5, 364-pounder has 237 career tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble.

In his best season with the Ravens, who developed Kemoeatu after he went undrafted out Utah, the big defensive lineman started every game during his last season in Baltimore and registered 40 tackles and a sack.
