Default Faneca didnt want to be here?

consider the source.. nevertheless.

POSTED 5:07 p.m. EST, March 5, 2008

FANECA SIMPLY WANTED OUT?

In response to our item from earlier in the day regarding the question of whether a decision by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to accept a slightly smaller deal could have enabled the team to bridge the gap between the best offer made by the Steelers to guard Alan Faneca and the proposal he accepted in New York, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that the Steelers offered Faneca only $1 million less over the first three years than what he'll make with the New York Jets.

"He wanted out," the source said.

Perhaps Faneca's desire to flee came from the team's refusal to give him a raise last year, when seven-year, $49 million contracts were being thrown around like Frisbees at a Frolf tournament, which then made Faneca decide that he would play anywhere but in Pittsburgh in 2008.

So maybe it wouldn't have mattered if the Steelers had been able to come up with a little bit more.

After making these statements in the past....

Quote:
"This will be my last year as a Pittsburgh Steeler,"
and this....

Quote:
"No, I don't want to be here," Faneca said flatly. "It's a matter of them being able to do what they can monetarily and come after me. That's the only reason I'm here, on that chance that they would."
and this....

Quote:
"I've been asking since February to trade me, to let me go,"
and this....

Quote:
"To make me go out there this year, play football with no security ... for what I've done for this organization, in my mind is not right."
why should I be surprised? The guy made it clear on more than one occasion that he no longer wanted to be here. Why is this breaking news?

Once again and for the last time (from me at least), take care Faneca and good luck. Have fun winning Super Bowl after Super Bowl with those Jets.

The horse is dead.
