    Re: Per Bernie: Faneca, Stallworth

    on February 29th, 2008, Faneca signed a 4 year $32 million dollar deal with the New York Jets.
    from his wikipedia page.

    Most be a done deal.. I'm surprised it hasn't been reported any wheres else that I know of.

    Re: Per Bernie: Faneca, Stallworth

    OMG, we are looking up FA's in Wikipedia?

    Sometimes, I really hate the internet. I mean, to be that anal about an OG that I have to look it up on Wikipedia......

    I'd rather grab a fishing pole.....

    Re: Per Bernie: Faneca, Stallworth

    Faneca, like Pace, has seen his best days. Faneca is s good run blocker but a less than average pass blocker. If he were top tier at this point in his career, Ben wouldn't have been sacked most in the league and the Steelers would have wrapped Faneca up in a contract by now.

    We need to build via the draft until we're one or two FA's away from the SB. Then someone like Faneca could make sense.

    Can they? Yes. Do all of them? Absolutely not.

    Agreed, certainly wouldn't surprise me.

    I still think if Pace stays healthy he could be a probowl starter like Faneca. Having two probowl starters on the squad who are vets can teach the younger kids how to be a great star. Eventually those younger players become great guys on the team.

    Re: Per Bernie: Faneca, Stallworth

    Faneca is supposedly going to announce his decision on Sunday. Jets offered him $20 million in guarantee money. Personally, I feel that's nuts. I would much rather have Jake Scott the guard from Indy. Faneca isn't coming to St. Louis.

    I would go with Scott also. People keep saying bell will be cheaper, but he wont on this market. Bell is younger and had a great season and he is arguably the second best guard available in FA. Scott is the youngest of the three and would be the most economic option. O ya and he is a great player

    Re: Per Bernie: Faneca, Stallworth

    I do have a question. I'm hoping someone can answer. But if we sign Faneca...how much CAP spending would we have left?
