Just two years ago the Jets signed G Alan Faneca to a five-year, $40 million contract with $21 million guaranteed. He lasted two years in New York before they released him last week.
Faneca has found a new home but for considerably less money.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Faneca signed with the Cardinals. The contract is for $2.5 million over one year.
Quite a dropoff in pay.
Faneca is 33 years old and should help the Cardinals line significantly. This is an important signing because the Cardinals need to do whatever they can to give Matt Leinart a chance to succeed.
