Ravens veteran nose guard Ma'ake Kemoeatu intends to continue playing football after revitalizing his career last season, according to his agent.
Kemoeatu started 13 games for the Super Bowl champions after being out of the league the previous year because of weight and injury issues.
The 6-foot-5, 345-pounder outplayed incumbent Terrence Cody last season, beating the former second-round draft pick out for the starting job and recording 29 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble during the regular season.
Kemoeatu started all four playoff games, including a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers, and had 10 tackles.
However, Kemoeatu, 34, is an unrestricted free agent. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome is on record that he wants to address the defensive tackle position.
So, it's unclear if Kemoeatu will be in the Ravens' plans. Regardless of whether he's back in Baltimore, Kemoeatu wants to keep playing.
"He will play another couple seasons," said Kemoeatu's agent, Ken Vierra. "His new approach to diet and keeping his weight down has really paid off."
