Unhappy Camper?

Today, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that LG Alan Faneca plans to report to training camp on time and promises not to create a distraction for the team. Steelers fans should expect no less. After all, Faneca has a contract, one that pays him rather well, I might note. As I previously opined on this blog, Faneca should not expect sympathy from fans just because the front office doesn't feel it's in the team's best interest to give a 30-something guard a $50 million extension. If you disagree, feel free to post a comment below.

The Steelers still have the option of slapping Faneca with the Franchise Player tag next year, so don't be so quick to run him out of town. They may not choose to pay him $8 mil a year or whatever the average of the top 5 guards is, but the fact remains they can keep him without paying a ridiculous signing bonus.
