At nearly the same time last season, the Steelers began preparation for life without All Pro guard Alan Faneca. A huge part of that plan was huge guard Chris Kemoeatu.
Now, according to Rich Cimini of the NY Daily News, Kemoeatu may be joining Faneca on the New York Jets. Per Cimini, Kemoeatu was offered a contract in the range of $4 million per year, but no length was provided.
Cimini must be certain he'll sign, he's already referring to him as "Kemo."
Washington to Detroit?
Per John Niyo of the Detroit News and Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, Steelers WR Nate Washington will visit with Lions officials this weekend. Niyo speculates that Minnesota and Tampa Bay are two other potential suitors for Washington's services, and even goes as far as to say he could be the best young WR in this year's free agency crop.
Star Tribune writer Judd Zulgad confirms the Vikings are interested in Washington in his blog.
