OWINGS MILLS — The Baltimore Ravens have signed veteran nose
guard Ma’ake Kemoeatu.

Kemoeatu, 33, last played for the Ravens in 2005 before joining
the Carolina Panthers after that season via a five-year, $23 million contract
that included a $6 million signing bonus.

He signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Washington
Redskins two years ago and started 12 games and recorded 29 tackles.

However, Kemoeatu didn’t play at all last season after being
released by the Redskins on July 28, 2011. He has dealt with serious Achilles
tendon and shoulder injuries.

The 6-foot-5, 364-pounder has 237 career tackles, four sacks and
one forced fumble.

In his best season with the Ravens, who developed Kemoeatu after
he went undrafted out of Utah, the big defensive lineman started every game
during his last season in Baltimore and registered 40 tackles and a sack.
