Kemoeatu the future at LG?

Say goodbye to All-Pro LG Alan Faneca. Say hello to Chris Kemoeatu, a restricted free agent and former fifth-round pick who is the odds-on favorite to play the left guard position in 2008. Expect the Steelers to offer Kemoeatu a one-year tender before the start of unrestricted free agency, although it's possible that the team could reach a long-term contract agreement with the fourth-year pro.

Kemoeatu would be paid $927,000 next season if the Steelers offer him a "low tender." In that case the club would receive a fifth-round pick if he went elsewhere in free-agency. However, if the Steelers offer a $1.47 million tender it would cost another team a second-round pick to sign Kemoeatu.
