I was told recently by one source that the Ravens were interested in Maake Kemoeatu’s brother Chris to play left guard. This was prior to the Bobbie Williams signing.
Chris, a former Steeler, said he would prefer to remain retired than wear the Ravens’ colors (so the story goes).
I actually find that hard to believe. Where else can he get an NFL veteran pay day AND get to work for a class organization like the Ravens?
NOTE: This rumor has as of a moment ago been refuted!
Nevertheless the tale got me thinking…players don’t often go from Baltimore to Pittsburgh or Pittsburgh to Baltimore. The most recent former Raven to don the black and yellow is long snapper Matt Katula. Can you think of any others that have taken out their dentures to feel more at home in Pittsburgh?
Some who have come from Pittsburgh to Bmore include:
· Kordell Stewart
· Keydrick Vincent
· Rod Woodson (by way of SF)
· Carnell Lake (by way of Jax)
· Leon Searcy (by way of Jax)
· Bam Morris
· Eric Green
· Brian St. Pierre
· Corey Ivy
· Troy Smith
· Matt Katula
Can you think of any others?
What would you think of a Raven who extended his career in a Steelers’ uniform?
