I just hope we're not trying to clean up all this cap room to give both Ben AND faneca big contracts.

We can get awesome O-line production without breaking the bank on ONE guard.

Thats what I'd put my money on. As for the contract. The o-linemen last year got a butt-load so I would say a ass-load.

Faneca apparently will not be getting "Hutchinson money" according to this article in SI.com. The Steelers apparently are not the only team reluctant to break the bank to sign a 31 year old guard on the downslope of his career

Despite being the top guard available on the market, Alan Faneca may have a difficult time finding a team willing to meet his salary demands. The seven-time Pro Bowl lineman is rumored to be seeking a deal that surpasses Steve Hutchinson's deal (seven years, $49 million) from two years ago. While several teams would love to add Faneca to their lineup, his age (31) will deter teams from committing to a high-priced, long-term deal.

League officials expect Faneca to sign a deal that is four to five years in length, with average salaries near the $7 million range. Also, there is a rumor floating in league circles that the Eagles will emerge as a dark horse candidate to make a strong play. Supposedly, the Eagles are interested in having Faneca line up at guard, with two-time Pro Bowl guard Shawn Andrews moving to right tackle as a replacement for Jon Runyan.

that would be a great move by the eagles. i said last year (when everyone was sure he would be a cardinal) to watch for the seahawks to be a player. i still think that might hold true. ive also heard that the rams would have the money and need.

As long as it is not in-division (unless back with us), I really don't give a damn.
