Jets Will Reportedly Release G Alan Faneca On Monday

The Jets are planning to release guard Alan Faneca on Monday, according to a report.

Faneca, 33, was reported to be on the trading block for weeks, but the Jets couldn’t find any takers. He was scheduled to make $7.5 million this season, of which $5.25 million is guaranteed.

That trade chatter gained some momentum when the Jets spent a second round pick on offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse.

The move also comes just two seasons after Faneca signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Jets. He spent his entire career prior to that with the Steelers.

So what do Jets fans think of the move? SB Nation's Jets community, Gang Green Nation, weighs in:

What worries me the most, though, is what the Jets are losing. I understand he is in decline, but it's also no accident D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold have played their best football since he arrived in 2008. He may not be a great pass blocker, but he is very valuable in the run game. Ducasse has virtually no experience pulling, which Faneca has made into an art form.
