No. I bet Faneca burned his bridges pretty good here.

Why would the jets waive Faneca? Did he jay walk and run past a granny trying to cross the street and now charges are being filed on him for speeding? That might get him an 8 game suspension.

Than again jets like the bad boy persona now, lol

My bad, missed the jets article.

hope he enjoyed the pay he received there. But no one is going to take that contract. Jets luck out in an uncapped year to swallow 5mill plus.

I think right now with the Retro trend we've been on this spring of re-signing our old players, I wouldn't be surprised if we looked at him. Can he or Kemo play RG?

At Louisiana State he was chosen as All-American first-team right guard by the Associated Press, Football Writers Association, Football News, The Sporting News and Walter Camp in his final year (1997).

Though I wouldn't mind having him back on the OL, as someone said above - he burned his bridges with the Steelers so I don't think it's going to happen if the Jets boot him.

even with him being older, with the great chance we will be without Ben for at least 4 games if not longer, we might need to do everything we can to shore up the O Line.

Ben is a unique animal back there, able to manuver around behind the line the way he does, shrugging off sure tackles. I don't see our backups having the same success at buying time without a stronger line. Faneca could help immediately. That may not be something a rookie we draft can provide in the first 4 weeks

but like some of you have said, he did burn some bridges
