We need him this season, he won't be traded.

BTW, does anyone know if Faneca has a cap penalty if traded?

Art Rooney II said that the Steelers and Alan Faneca "still got a way to go" in terms of a contract extension, but he added that the perennial Pro Bowler's absence from the workouts, which are not mandatory, did not concern him.

While this is the truth&rumors section I believe that this statement is true.

I know losing faneca would be a big loss but we do have young guys with lots of potential and we could probably get a 2nd round pick for Faneca so we could pick someone of Justin Blaylocks caliber. Faneca will probably be gone next season anyway.

We're rebuilding. I trade Faneca now rather than delay the inevitable.

I am almost hoping aboard that boat.

I wouldn't mind trading him for a high second round pick. As long as his salary is off the books, that's all that matters.

I like that idea. We trade him only if his salary doesnt hurt us. If it doesnt then we might as well get someone out of it.

What? Rebuilding? Every team changes each year, in no way do I see us in a rebuilding mode.

Just because there are some areas of focus, doesn't mean it can't be upgraded with one player drafted.

Faneca needs to stay for another year and then evaluate were the team financially is at then. Granted, he will most likely move on in 08-09, but it doesn't change the fact we can be competitive in 07-08.

I dont think we are in rebuilding mode but i think we need some serious upgrades in certain positions.

Perhaps we're not rebuilding, but we should be. We're delaying the inevitable. We are overpaying for underachievers. We have free agency hell coming up with little to no cap room. We have a new coach, a young QB, young WRs, and a young RB.

It is time to trim the fat. Clean up some cap space, cut some dead weight, cut some vets who may be good players but are eating up huge chunks of money, and rebuild. We need an infusion of youth in our LB corp and infusion of skill on our o-line.

The more you delay these things, the worse it hurts when it catches up. That is what happened to the 49ers and the Raiders.

I'd much rather rebuild for the next 2 or 3 years and have $20 million in cap space to play with in a few years (like the Patriots had this offseason although they have managed their team far better than us) and be able to make 5 or 6 good Super Bowl runs during the prime of our stars' creers, than delay the inevitable and face cap hell during their primes.

That might mean losing Faneca. It might mean losing Haggans. We already lost Porter. It might even mean losing Polamalu (although he will be resigned). The fact of the matter is our team is a ticking time bomb right now. Free agency and the salary cap is going to explode, and I'd rather us blow it up ourselves and retool to make runs during Ben's prime than have it catch us by surprise and waste our franchise QB.

I agree . And once again said this last year when most had little regard for all those extra picks we had.

the two teams who need him the most probably are the Cards (5) and the Browns (3) does that change some of your minds a little bit what if someone slips to the early second

I think Im jumping on this bandwagon as well

I wouldnt mind grabbing an extra second and getting Ben Grubbs, cut that salary and the stress of signing him and Troy

I think we'd be alright
