Although Chicago Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo has expressed interest in free agent guard Alan Faneca, he apparently isn’t interested enough to get a deal done.
Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Angelo has talked to Faneca’s agent, but the Bears are not among the teams that have expressed the most interest.
The bad experience with Orlando Pace last year may have scared the Bears off from signing aging veteran offensive linemen. Faneca has more gas left in the tank than Pace, but he’s the same age now that Pace was when the Bears signed him a year ago, and the Bears may want to get younger on the line.
