When a veteran with a resume like Alan Faneca's you might ask why would the Jets just straight out cut him. Odd's are its all about the money in this day and age. The guy is only 33 years old and still plays at a high level. With the Raiders picking up two O lineman in the draft who else would be better to learn from then a 9 time pro bowl guard. I believe the whole O line would learn something from this vet. And forget about the teaching for a second this guy can straight out play.
Time will tell if the Raider's even have a shot with this guy. He may want to go back to his original team the Steelers if they would have him, not to mention he might want to go to a team that has playoff aspirations. With the trade of Jason Cambell maybe that would be enough to show Faneca that the Raider's are on the right track and he could be part of a team that is on the rise.
Like with everything else that makes the world go around it may come down to money which Al Davis has no problem throwing at old cagey vets. I say throw him7-8 million over two years with incentives and that may get him to come to the silver and black. Would be a damn good O line that now after just a year would have quality players and depth.
Tell me Raider Nation waht do you all think about this?
