More evidence Alan Faneca is available

Rex Ryan wasn’t happy when he heard about a report that Alan Faneca could be traded, but he didn’t deny the report either.

There’s probably a very good reason for that.

ESPN’s John Clayton, speaking on Sportscenter, is the third reporter this week to say Faneca is available.  We just can’t imagine a deal happening because Faneca is due $7.5 million in 2010. 

There is a report that $5.25 million of that is guaranteed, which would be a lot of money for the Jets to swallow if they chose to release Faneca.

    How is this evidence?

  3. Realistic Randy says: Apr 22, 2010 2:44 PM

    WHY??? Do not mess with possibly the best offensive line in the NFL… Makes NO sense

    Come to Washington and protect a real Qb’s blindside

  5. PittsburghSteelerz says: Apr 22, 2010 2:45 PM

    Come back to Pittsburgh and play RG!
    The OL would then be solid after picking up a center on day 2/3

    “There is a report that $5.25 million of that is guaranteed, which would be a lot of money for the Jets to swallow if they chose to release Faneca.”
    Why? It would count against the non-existent cap, but that salary would be paid by the team they trade to, not the Jets.

    before or if the cap gets reinstalled drop all of your deadweight and start fresh if the cap is reinstalled.the guaranteed money is a small price to pay to right a bad contract

    Because the Jets are idiots…..I knew when they gave him all that jack, it would come down to this….
    Hey Jets, Fred Biletnikoff is available, maybe you should go out and sign him too.
    As long as you have the Burrito back there throwing, you will never be anything but a “I hope they don’t play theirs starters so we can get into the playoffs.” team.

    Get it done SF

  11. GaryClark says: Apr 22, 2010 3:03 PM

    If he can replace heyer, AKA Speed Bump, let him on the skins. We would gladly take him!

  12. copes cabana says: Apr 22, 2010 3:10 PM

    Why would you trade him? You sure as hell aren’t going to get much better, and you were just in a afc championship game. It is not a rebuilding year it is a go for it all year!!

  13. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Apr 22, 2010 3:10 PM

    i thought when u said evidence u would have a link to how much his jersey cost on the jets website

  14. Turnercrp says: Apr 22, 2010 3:12 PM

    Welcome to Kansas City Mr. Faneca.

  15. FreeAgentPro says: Apr 22, 2010 3:13 PM

    We know you are sitting around with nothing to do, and are really an outsider in this whole process. All you can hope for is that ‘ one of your pals’ whom you namedrop constantly will offer you a crumb of REAL info to pass on to PFT instead of your idle brainfarts. Not likely , tho…they are too busy doing real work.

  16. The Pillager says: Apr 22, 2010 3:17 PM

    Come play RG in Minny and grab a ring while you are at it!!

    It means that releasing him is not a viable option. Trading him is.

    Come back to Pitt!!!
    ***
    At right guard maybe. I’d rather have Kemo at left guard.

  19. GreenAsGrass says: Apr 22, 2010 3:26 PM

    hey steelcity79, I’ll take “the burrito” as my QB with ++ likelihood of improvement in Year 2 over Byron leftover Sandwich any friggin day. Say bye-bye to Ben.

    No way he comes back to Pitt, the FO burned that bridge and look how it played out.

  22. ChicagoJo says: Apr 22, 2010 3:38 PM

    Please please please Bears get this guy… use the money you saved from Alex Brown and I’ll forgive his release.

  23. robert ethan says: Apr 22, 2010 3:38 PM

    Don’t know if this means anything, butI heard the trainers threw his equipment out of the second floor window at the Jets practice facility. It’s lying in heap on the sidewalk.

  24. TexansMike says: Apr 22, 2010 3:40 PM

    “Houston”, we could really fix a problem!!!!

  25. funi says: Apr 22, 2010 4:04 PM

    Jets trade him to Pitt for Pitt’s original 5th round pick!!

  26. robert ethan says: Apr 22, 2010 4:45 PM

    Big Al could go back to the Burgh and smack that “little bitty kid” QB back into line.

  27. bigstorm says: Apr 22, 2010 4:56 PM

    The Pillager……
    The only ring that Faneca is getting in Minnesota is the one around the toilet….
    No SB again this year chief….sorry.

  28. Bearing Down says: Apr 22, 2010 6:04 PM

    Bears passed on Holmes. Please dont pass on this ex-Steeler either.

  29. JetChris says: Apr 23, 2010 8:57 AM

    WOW! Do some of you watch the Jets game or just go off a players name?? Faneca was one of the worst lineman in the NFL when it came to pass blocking. Run blocking he was great but pass blocking, he got killed constantly. Unless the Jets draft a OLine, Faneca wont be moved.
