The Steelers have informed another veteran — guard Chris Kemoeatu, this time — that he will be released, according to a league source.
The Steelers did the same with veteran DE Aaron Smith, one day after cutting ties with WR Hines Ward.
Sources said the team is still deciding between LBs James Farrior and Larry Foote. One will have to go, essentially, because the Steelers’ current salary-cap situation won’t allow them to carry the price tag it will take to retain WR Mike Wallace as a restricted free agent with a first-round tender.
Kemoeatu started eight games for the Steelers in 2011, his lowest total since 2007, when he didn’t start any.
