Steelers to Release Veteran Guard Chris Kemoeatu

The latest veteran Steeler that is going to be shown the door is guard Chris Kemoeatu, as reports say he will be released by the club to try and give them more room under the cap.

A 2005 sixth-round pick out of Utah, the 6-foot-3, 344-pound Kemoeatu spent three season as a reserve before becoming a full-time starter in 2008. Over the last four seasons, Kemoeatu has started 51 of 56 games.

The move of getting rid of Kemoeatu will save the Steelers $ 3.05 million in salary.

Already the team has gotten rid of two veteran players – wide receiver Hines Ward and defensive end Aaron Smith. Rumors are floating around that LB James Farrior is also going to be released.
