Jets and G Alan Faneca agree on a 4 year deal with a reported 25 million in guaranteed money

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

So that's Faneca and Jenkins?  The Jets could be pretty improved next year.

If they put Faneca between D'Brick and Mangold the left side of that line is going to be sick!

Only if D'Brick and Mangold pick it up.  D'Brick has been a huge disappointment - and Mangold has been sufficient - but not much more.

D'Brick wasn't so hot as a rookie but he was much better last year.  Besides, putting a guy like Faneca next to them would provide a huge benefit to both.  Look what happened to Walter Jones when Hutchinson left Seattle.

D'Brickashaw was actually really good as a rookie, then dropped off a little this past year, which many attributed to his left guard Kendall going to Washington. Mangold has been pretty good both seasons. Neither have really been disappointing, so color me confused.

According to his agent, this is not the case. He hasn't signed a deal with anyone as yet and is currently still available.

D'Brick was not average for a rookie in his first year, and not average last year.  When someone is a top pick, can't miss, sure fire pro bowler and he is not getting it done consistently - that is disappointing regardless of the name.

I'm glad somebody can be improved. It won't be us at this pace and mindset.

They wont have much more money to pick up anymore bigtime guys. They are still a year or two out.

JETS GUARANTEE FANECA $21 MILLION by Michael David Smith

Alex Marvez of Fox Sports and Adam Schefter of NFL Network are reporting that the Jets and guard Alan Faneca have agreed on the largest free agent deal ever given to an offensive lineman.

The reports say that both the average value -- $8 million a year for five years -- and the guaranteed portion of the contract -- $21 million -- are the most any free agent lineman has ever had.

Although Faneca didn't make any visits, he had offers from several teams, including the Rams and 49ers, but the Jets gave him the best deal. Despite some rumors to the contrary, the Cardinals were apparently never serious contenders, thanks in large part to having a huge portion of their salary cap tied up in wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Bump.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Not worth it anymore.

Sears is back, Zuttah has showed promise in the past and Davin is a probowler.

I'm sure he also wants to go for a known contender. No way at 33 he wants to come play for a rebuilding franchise, and we have some solid depth at guard, we just need to find the answer to the big question mark that is Arron Sears.
