    Panthers drop Kemoeatu

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 5, 2010 2:36 AM ET

    With one season left on a five year deal, the Panthers released defensive tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu Friday morning, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    The former Raven tore his Achilles' tendon last July and plans to be ready to play football again by training camp.

    The mammoth defensive tackle had a rocky stay in Carolina that included more disappointment than triumph. Still, it's hard not to look at the Carolina roster and not see some gaping holes on their defensive line.

    "Kemo" will be of interest to 3-4 teams out there willing to take a gamble. There are only so many 345--pound run stuffers out there

    In before the "we need a sloppy NT so Ratliff can move outside" post.

    Ratliff is an All Pro and isn't moving anywhee I agree with you there.

    But we could use a backup. Just another option to consider. Between the draft, Kemoeatu, and J Williams I like our chances of upgrading more and more.
