The main issues here are the amount of energy former Steelers LG ALan Faneca spent in calling out the Steelers for not treating him fairly, and his decision to choose the team that has arguably the worst reputation for dealing with its players. Pete Kendall ring a bell? Laveraneus Coles is saying the same thing now.

Report: sources have indicated the deal is essentially done, with particulars still to be worked out. However, Tom Rock from Newsday Magazine writes that he spoke to Faneca's agent, Rick Smith, who said the signing is "false." (nod to Lifer for the scoop)

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette says the deal that was earlier reported is around the ballpark of what Faneca and Smith want, but that doesn't mean the offer the Jets made is signed yet. This likely means Smith is shopping the Jets offer to San Francisco and St. Louis, the two other possible suitors for Faneca. If accepted formally, the deal would make him the highest paid offensive lineman in football.

Faneca didn't want what was fair, he wanted what was his. As long as he recognizes the difference, everyone will be fine to move on.
