Beat me to it. Odd decision in my mind, considering he apparently can't even pass a physical at this point

just read it. I'm glad about that hopefully he can become healthy enough to make it on the field...

Maake Kemoeatu | #99 | DT

Former Carolina Panthers nose tackle Maake Kemoeatu.. ...He sat out the 2009 season after tearing his Achilles' tendon in training camp and his recovery has been bumpy... Although Kemoeatu's initial surgery went well, he later required a second procedure and still is not running. But the Redskins are in the process of making a major shift from a 4-3 to a base 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, so it makes sense to keep an eye on Kemoeatu, who was a force in the middle for Carolina. Kemoeatu had a base salary of $2 million last season.

Sounds somewhat risky -- a hefty contract for someone coming off two surgeries last year. I guess he looked good. I'd personally love to see some signings on the offensive line, but it seems they are being very deliberate and signing the guys they actually think can play.

They must be confident that he will be back strong and ready to go.

Re: Maake Kemoeatu DT signs 2yr $7million deal

Comment: Kemoeatu has excellent size and strength inside and he is a physical force in stopping the run. He has good recognition skills and hand use. He understands how to play with leverage and he can shed and make plays quickly in a short area. He lacks speed and range down the line of scrimmage but for his size he is surprisingly athletic. He can absorb double teams and hold his ground inside, allowing LBs to remain free in their path to the ball from behind. He is limited as a pass-rusher because of his lack of speed. He can be very powerful as an in-line rusher. Provides a good push up the middle as a bull-rusher but doesn't have a wide variety of moves to defeat blocks and get to the QB. Overall, he's a better run player than pass-rusher. Strong and powerful within a short area.

Re: Maake Kemoeatu DT signs 2yr $7million deal

Well, looks like we have our front three...

Haynesworth DE, Kemoeatu DT, and Daniels DE.

I hope Kemoeatu heals up though.

If he's healthy it's a really solid signing. Seems to push Montgomery further out the door

Did he ever have his foot in the door to begin with? I could probably count on 2 hands how many times I've heard his named called since he's been with the team..

I agree. I also doubt that he's garaunteed anything in 2011 either. There's really no risk here, assuming our docs felt he had a good chance of getting healthy. If he is, then our starting 3-4 and 4-3 front 7 lineups are close to being set. Haynesworth will be playing 3-4DE/4-3DT and Orakpo will be right beside/behind him ... thats going to be scary. Really, we can now switch between 3-4 and 4-3 formations without having to change our personnel, since Orakpo would be our 3-4 linebacker and 4-3 DE. That statement about us running a 3-4 defense with a 4 man front makes alot more sense now.

I know nothing about this guy - I do think I remember him getting injured though. How good was he before the injury?
