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 run stopper had a rocky stay in Carolina that included more disappointment than success. Still, it’s hard not to see the gaping holes now on Carolina’s 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 guys out there.
