Free agent NT Maake Kemoeatu plans to play "another couple seasons."
Including the playoffs, Kemoeatu started 17-of-20 games for the Super Bowl champion Ravens after weight and injury issues held him out for all of 2011. It's a neat story on paper, but Kemoeatu graded out very poorly in Pro Football Focus' ratings, and played just 439 regular-season snaps. Kemoeatu should draw little interest as a starter on the open market. Wed, Feb 20, 2013 03:14:00 PM

Maake Kemoeatu started at nose tackle in the season opener after winning the preseason competition with Terrence Cody.

Out of football last year due to weight and injury issues, Kemoeatu dropped nearly 80 pounds this offseason. Cody could reclaim the position once he fully recovers from a preseason hip injury. The Ravens run defense can do better than the 91 yards allowed to BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Ravens NT Maake Kemoeatu has lost 78 pounds since last fall.

Kemoeatu was out of the league last season as he rehabbed from Achilles' tendon and shoulder injuries. His weight ballooned to 415 pounds, but he's now in the 330s and is battling with Terrence Cody for snaps. "Kemo is pushing for a starting job. He's in great shape, and he's playing extremely well," coach John Harbaugh said.

Ravens signed NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu, formerly of the Redskins.

Kemoeatu, now 33, was out of the league last season after being released prior to the start of training camp. He'll have to prove that he's finally over major Achilles and shoulder injuries to earn a spot as a reserve in Baltimore.

Redskins released NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu.

Major injuries to Kemoeatu's Achilles and shoulder have crippled his once solid career. He was only scheduled to make $1.5 million in base salary this season plus a $200K roster bonus, but the Redskins are wise to not even pay him that.

Redskins NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu's right Achilles and surgically repaired left shoulder "feel great" this offseason.

Between the 2009 Achilles injury and the torn labrum in his shoulder, Kemoeatu was a free agent flop in his first season with the Redskins. Coordinator Jim Haslett still has a hole at nose tackle, but Keoeatu isn't the answer with his body breaking down. He's expected to be released this summer.
Thu, Apr 21, 2011 09:07:00 PM

Redskins NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu is due a $100,000 roster bonus on July 15.

Previous reports have stated Kemoeatu is a free agent, but that's not accurate. The 32-year-old is due the bonus in addition to a $1.5 million salary. An extended NFL lockout could push back the day the bonus is due, but its existence will give the Redskins an excuse to cut Kemoeatu. He also is eligible for $500,000 worth of in-season per-game roster bonuses.

Comcast SportsNet Washington confirms that NT Maake Kemoeatu will not be back with the Redskins in 2011.

Kemoeatu's body has broken down, and the 32-year-old isn't even worth his $1.5 million scheduled salary. His 2010 season ended with a left shoulder injury. The extent is unknown, but Kemoeatu will need surgery on the joint.
Thu, Feb 10, 2011 01:16:00 PM

Redskins placed NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu on injured reserve with a left shoulder injury, ending his season.

He'll need surgery on the shoulder. Kemoeatu played in all 14 games this season, registering 29 tackles. He's known for his run-stopping ability but has underperformed vastly this season. Anthony Bryant had passed him on the depth chart before the injury.
Wed, Dec 22, 2010 09:02:00 AM

Redskins NT Ma'ake Kemoeatu (Achilles tendon) started the team's preseason opener Friday night.

Kemoeatu's recovery from a torn Achilles' has been impressive considering his setback. The 31-year-old could pay dividends as Washington's starting nose tackle after few teams pursued him on the free agent market. He'll be a two-down player, focusing on stopping the run as a two-gap lineman.
Sun, Aug 15, 2010 04:08:00 PM

Many in the Redskins organization believe Maake Kemoeatu (Achilles' tendon) will be healthy enough to start at nose tackle in Week 1.

The Redskins are encouraged about Kemoeatu's progress after he vigorously rehabbed at the team's facility all offseason. Still, it remains to be seen if Kemoeatu can recapture his old form after such a serious injury. His presence would ideally allow Albert Haynesworth to start at end and switch to nose in nickel and dime situations.
Tue, Jul 27, 2010 02:49:00 PM

Redskins NT Maake Kemoeatu (Achilles' tendon) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

"I like his progress," coach Mike Shanahan said. "He still has a lot of work to do ... I'm very optimistic that by the time we start camp, he'll be full go and in football shape." We're not quite as optimistic. Kemoeatu's injury is no small hurdle, and there's still a good chance that he won't return to his previous form.
Thu, Jun 17, 2010 06:11:00 PM

Redskins NT Maake Kemoeatu says he is at 90 percent in his recovery from a torn right Achilles' tendon.

It's a major injury, and we remain skeptical about Kemo's status for Week 1. He also conceded that he's 15-20 pounds overweight, and wants to get down to a playing weight of 345 pounds. The Skins badly need Kemoeatu healthy, as he's their best option to hold down the nose in their new 3-4 scheme.
Thu, May 27, 2010 02:33:00 PM

Coach Mike Shanahan expects NT Maake Kemoeatu (Achilles) and OLB Andre Carter (biceps) to resume football activities by June 1.

We're taking a wait and see approach with Kemoeatu, who required a second surgery after the first was botched. If he does manage to recapture his old form, the Redskins can then move Albert Haynesworth out to defensive end.
Sat, May 8, 2010 02:13:00 PM

Redskins signed NT Maake Kemoeatu to a two-year, $7 million contract.

Kemoeatu is coming off a dicey Achilles' tear that required two separate surgeries, so this is a risky signing. But if healthy, Kemoeatu could play nose tackle and allow Albert Haynesworth to focus on his more natural end spot in the Redskins' new 3-4 scheme. Kemoeatu remains a big question mark for Week 1, so the Skins shouldn't be counting on him to start.
