    Does Faneca have one foot out the door?

    Now you know Faneca and his agent are looking at these numbers other free agents O-line are getting. Is the market value getting to high to keep Faneca?

    Got the following from ESPN.com



    The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a seven-year, $49.6 million contract with free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis, the second pick in the 2001 NFL draft who has played the last six seasons for the Arizona Cardinals.

    Top free agents
    Leonard Davis
    Davis
    Offensive tackle Leonard Davis is No. 8 on ESPN.com's list of the top NFL free agents on the market. Story

    Davis will receive $24 million over the first three years of the contract, and $18.75 million of Davis' contract is guaranteed.

    The Steelers aren't going to pay those kind of figures, but at the same time I would hate to see Faneca walk out that he's happy in the 'Burgh because IMO he would be a huge loss!

    If the Steelers were smart, they'd try to unload Faneca to Whiz and the Cards. They would get some nice value in return. Strike while the iron is hot I always say. Plus, if Faneca is having so many issues with the "change" that is taking place ... give him a home that he's familiar with (Whiz/Grimm). After all, he was the one lobbying so hard for Grimm.

    Faneca and a high 2nd and 4th would be nice.

    I like the idea, however it would be tough to lose such a key member of the o-line.

    We really need some guys to step up and take on some leadership. i think we'll get a better handle on the team after the May mini camp.

    Well I know one thing, if Faneca leaves, expect to miss the playoffs for at least 2 years. Back when Justin Strelzyk left, our O-line sucked in 98, 99, and 00. Faneca would be a huge loss. Looks like we better pick a lineman early next year.

    Aaron Smith for basically the same amount of money he signed for in his last contract, about 25 million as I remember it from before without actually researching it. Faneca would stay for the about he same amount and is without a doubt worth it. If we throw a 5 yr deal his way for 25 million with a big fat signing bonus and then backload his deal somewhat we can cover our asses and hope to get a solid 4 more years out of him.

    Our OL is so key to our entire team there's no way this team can afford to let Faneca enter this season without a new deal in place IMO.
