Ravens Sign DT Ma’ake Kemoeatu

NFL

The Baltimore  Ravens have re-signed veteran nose guard Ma’ake Kemoeatu six years after leaving as a free agent, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Kemoeatu will likely provide support in the Ravens’ run defense, which lost defensive tackle Brandon McKinney to free agency this offseason.


Kemoeatu was originally signed by the Ravens as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Utah in 2002.  As a free agent in 2005, he then signed a five-year deal with the Carolina Panthers reportedly worth $23 million in 2005.  The nose guard spent the last two years with the Redskins, starting 12 games in 2010 and missing the entire 2011 season due to various injuries.

In his ten year career, Kemoeatu, 33,  has compiled 237 career tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble.
