Kemoeatu contract seems reasonable

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers just came to a contract agreement with LG Chris Kemoeatu that will pay him $20 million over the next five years. At first that sounds like a lot, except when one considers that CK's signing bonus is only $4 million, so if Kemoeatu turns out not to be the long-term answer at left guard, the Steelers could release him a few years down the road without a painful salary cap charge like they just incurred with Kendall Simmons (whose signing bonus in 2007 was almost $8 million).

Spending 4M a year on a guy with just one year starting experience and a mediocre one at that is madness. Meanwhile we wonder why the Steelers have no money to pay the likes of McFadden.
