Alan Faneca is a free man. That means general managers are free to talk about him. General managers like the Bears’ Jerry Angelo.
“Who would not
consider Alan Faneca if you had a need at the offensive line?” Angelo asked Saturday.
Considering and making a contract offer are two different things, but the Bears would make a logical fit for him. Chicago would be wise to keep the failed Orlando Pace signing in mind when considering it.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin indicated on ESPN the team wasn’t interested in bringing Faneca back to Pittsburgh. Faneca’s former coaches Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm would make logical suitors.
