Kemoeatu to visit on Tuesday

Former Carolina nose tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu is scheduled to visit the Redskins on Tuesday, a league source said.

Kemoeatu, whom the Panthers released this week, missed the 2009 season because of an injury. In 2008, Kemoeatu started 14 games for the Panthers and was credited with 31 unassisted tackles.

We need draft picks...simple as that!

Posted by: rickyroge | March 6, 2010 9:59 PM

Maybe that's why Allen's not spending money on free agents. He's gonna buy more draft picks?

How about Mike Gandy OT from the Cardinals? He was hurt last season but before that he was a solid player and he is 30

Here's a guy who hasn't been following the 'Skins as closely as most of us up here.

Hey, Rip Van Winkle, wake up and smell the Old Spice.

Scott- Moore was a 2008 All American @ Nicholls State.

Positives: Has a shorter than ideal frame, but possesses a wide body with solid muscle tone, a well-developed upper body, good shoulder width and arm muscle definition, wide back and thick calves … Compensates for a lack of explosiveness with good field vision and instincts, as it is rare to see him caught out of position … Tough and physical wrap-up tackler who is a willing supporter vs. the run … Better playing in the zone than in man coverage, as he reads routes well and is always in position to make the play … Shows good ability to close and make tackles in the open field … One of the hardest workers on the team, reminding some of the Rams' Corey Chavous for how quickly he grasps the playbook and has learned the game in such a short time … Plays with good effort and intensity, bringing his arms with force to wrap and secure the ballcarrier on the perimeter, staying low in his pads to take out the opponent's outside leg … Even though he lacks height, he tracks the ball well in flight, showing elevation and extension to high point the pass, secure the ball and elude opponents for additional yardage on the interception runback … Takes good angles and uses his hands effectively to defeat blocks, avoid trash and make the play inside the box … Can impact an opponent with crunching hits and does a good job breaking down in space … Very quick to diagnose the quarterback's moves in the backfield, showing valid instincts and awareness in his charge toward the ball … Takes proper angles in pursuit, sliding down the line while keeping his shoulders square … Has enough agility to get to the flat and has a good feel in his pass drops to gain leverage … Shows sharp ball anticipation skills working in the zone … Has soft, natural hands for the interception … Efficient and disruptive blitzer who will force things to happen when closing on the quarterback.

Negatives: Has adequate timed speed, but lacks explosiveness closing on the ball, as he fails to open his hips (bit stiff) and keep his balance turning and running to the play … Will take wasted steps in transition … Does not play up to his timed speed and was not used often in man coverage as a result … Corrected a bit of a hitch in his backpedal, but would turn smoother if he did not get so high in his stance … Lacks the ideal height you look for in a free safety, but has a thick frame and good power to compensate … Best making plays in front of him, as he needs to gather some when having to recover when a receiver gets behind him … Will lose some jump-ball battles vs. taller receivers because of his height … Has limited experience as a starter (two years) and played against inferior competition.

Compares To: RYAN CLARK-Pittsburgh

Negatives: ... he fails to open his hips (bit stiff)

Posted by: Diesel44 | March 6, 2010 10:15 PM |

This is only a negative in a chick you're going out with. It's a neutral in a safety you're scouting.

And, "bit stiff"? This is mostly a problem for older guys like Diesel44 and TheCork. But, there's three drugs on the market for that.

So far, so goodie.

i'd like us to pick up one more offensive linemen in FA.

Why is it a foregone conclusion that Fat Albert will not be our nose guard? He's 350lbs.

Posted by: Vicc | March 6, 2010 10:29 PM | Report abuse

Ma'ake Kemoeatu would be a really good signing and cold move Fat Al out to DE. In 7 seasons he has only missed 5 seasons....Dude is Tonga truck.

still like to give FS Sharper a look. 1 or 2 year deal. he still plays on a high level and we'd get him off the books quick. he won his ring, so he might offer his 9int services for a lil bit of retirement mula.
he can prolly teach our safeties a thing or too.veteran leadership

extra d-linemen never hurt as they are constantly being rotated in and out.

lets sign Kemo

Can somebody help me out? I thought Levi Jones was only signed for 2009, and as such, is an unrestricted free agent this year. I just checked all of this week's posts and I couldn't find where he's signed. Did I miss something?

Posted by: wagman1 | March 6, 2010 10:33 PM | Report abuse

Levi Jones isn't signed. He most likely will be moving on as he is getting offers from other teams.

cold move..I now I hit the U botton, button must be stuck. See L-S, I'm 30 years away from your liptor, plavix, fish oil, detrol LA, & Cialis cocktail.

Wow, didn't know that v!agra was a banned word.

Levi is still on the roster.

Thanks for enlightening me, Will. Some posts kinda indicated he was already on board...I didn't think so.

I'm sure they'll be knocking down the doors for him just like last year.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | March 6, 2010 10:55 PM | Report abuse

Levi did improve the line last year. I'd really like to see him here again. He hasn't signed anywhere yet so maybe we still have a shot.

`

well done

pass protection may not have been this groups strength, but Buges got 'em to run block a lil bit; more noticeably when Levi hit the lineup.

Posted by: Vicc | March 6, 2010 11:04 PM | Report abuse

I do hope Levi returns as well. he almost didn't get to play last year.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | March 6, 2010 11:05 PM | Report abuse

pass protection is boring

when i think of run blocking

i think of oklahoma drill

much more fun

Posted by: Vicc | March 6, 2010 11:12 PM | Report abuse

You'd almost think they'd have to keep Levi around, even if for only depth purposes, until something better came around, wouldn't you?

Don't use those kinds of drugs. I use an all natural foolproof method successfully tested by the Sixth Fleet. Your sister.

At least its not Extenze, cuz that'd just be silly. Jimmy Johnson finally figured out how to make Tom Landry spin in his grave.

So we can assume he's well rested and ready to go.
