This afternoon Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu gave the Steelers the opportunity to come close to the Jets offer and the Steelers did as the two sides agreed to a 5 year deal worth close to $20 million this afternoon. Kemoeatu will receive $6 million in guarantees.
The Jets increased their offer this morning and appeared to be the favorite to sign Kemoeatu but Kemoeatu was torn on leaving the Steelers. The Jets offer was 4 years – $17 million.
