    (Rotoworld) Beat writer Rich Cimini, now writing for ESPNNewYork.com, reports the Jets have been "quietly shopping" LG Alan Faneca for weeks.

    Analysis: Confirming Michael Lombardi's earlier report, Cimini says Faneca could be released if a trade partner can't be found during the draft. The Jets would be eating quite a bit of salary, as Faneca is guaranteed $5.25 million this year. The Jets are believed to covet Idaho's Mike Iupati and Florida's Maurkice Pouncey, and could trade up to snag one of them. Faneca's fate would then be sealed.

    No way. The guy is 34 and on the decline. There is a report on ESPN Insider about how his stats were bad last year. Something like 7 sacks, 3 hurries and 10 blown blocks.

    Yes get on the phone and bring him in for a reduced price. If the Jets want top round picks then screw them, but if we can give up a 6th for Faneca I will take it and let him battle for the LG spot (I bet he'd win it too).

    I remember when everybody thought Kevin Mawae was too old when Tenn got him.

    If the price is right, I'd take Faneca

    The Jets fans I know say he has not been good as a pass blaocker, but still pretty good as a run blocker. Overall, overrated and not as good as his reputation.

    Hes not the player he used to be, so I wouldn't be in favor of signing this guy.

    I magine the Texans will show interest in G Alan Faneca after the Jets cut him. He's from Houston. He's 33. I bet he'd like to play at home. 35 minutes ago via web

    Aging Alan Faneca > Studdard and Chris White. Not sure on how Brisiel will do after his injury but, even then Mike is never going to be anything but an average starter at best.

    And with us being a pass first team (in reality if not lip service), how ironic would it be if the veteran stud brought in to help the O-line ended up being the one to get Schaub killed?

    It's hard to imagine Smith was brought in here for the kind of money he was to be a back-up. If Faneca is signed here, that'd pretty much cement an interior of:

    Faneca - Smith - Caldwell

    Unless Caldwell can't win the RG spot, which would be very bad news.
