More On Kemoeatu and Update on Willie Parker


When Kemoeatu’s visit with the Redskins was first reported, it didn’t look like a signing was close because Kemoeatu isn’t close to being completely recovered from the torn Achilles’ tendon that cost him the entire 2009 season. But apparently the Redskins are satisfied that Kemoeatu is on the road to recovery.

The 31-year-old Kemoeatu played for the Ravens from 2002 to 2005 and the Panthers from 2006 to 2008. He is listed at 345 pounds but is likely bigger than that, and recent reports have suggested that his goal during rehab was to stay under 370.

My gut feeling is he could be a regular rotation guy.  It seems like he has a ton of rehabbing to do, and if he is at 100%, he and Haynesworth would be devastating together.  If he is unable to go full throttle right away, we may see a lot of switching in and out of the rotation.


RT @Russellmania09: Per a #NFL source: #Redskins are likely to make a decision on Parker today. My sense is they will get a deal done .

News yesterday said that Parker left Ashburn with no deal and was headed for Kansas City. Shortly thereafter, it was reported that Thomas Jones signed a deal with the Chiefs.  This could be beneficial for the Skins if they intend on signing Parker.


With Karlos Dansby signing in Miami, Arizona may be aggressive in signing Foote.

Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official web site writes that Foote is most likely the team’s top priority in replacing linebacker Karlos Dansby, who left Arizona to sign with the Dolphins.

It should be a priority to sure up the linebacker core to further strengthen the push of this re-vamped defensive line.  I will be interested to see who the Skins look to persue next.  Will the go after another offensive lineman?  Or are they saving that for the draft?
