Faneca to the Jets
For Alan Faneca it was all about the money. And now he'll have more money than ever after agreeing to a five-year, $40 million contract with the New York Jets that includes $21 million guaranteed. Although many fans probably don't agree with me I think the Steelers were wise to let Faneca go, even though the team may experience a significant drop-off at his position in 2008. I can eaily envision a scenario where Faneca's play declines dramatically just a year or two down the road, or he decides to retire prematurely (leaving New York with a lot of "dead money" counting against its salary cap).
