We're talking about "Big Red".  More than an hour in the sun with anything less than SPF 130 prolly turns him the color of a boiled lobster.

If I were Steelers management, I'd at least gauge from his agent what he thinks he's worth.  Then, depending on the numbers, I'd multiply the years by (at most) .66, and the salary by .75, and offer that.

Now I'm no Reddy apologist, but one of the game recaps from Sunday mentioned that it was Faneca who challenged the team to win it, in the huddle on the last TD drive. Going to be tough to replace that, but not impossible. But its nice to hear that he still somewhat cares. Also, FWIW, Faneca always picks BR up first after a TD toss, and Ben seems to look for him first as well..
 
His actual play however doesn't warrant that huge contract he seems destined for in the desert. I personally wouldn't mind seeing him stick around for a few more years. He is the best OL guy the team has, and would probably be so for the next 2-3 years without a huge, I mean huge, FA signing or top 15 draft pick. Neither of which seems likely at this point. Of course, Faneca himself would be that huge, huge FA signing so unless he gives up the hometown discount he ain't staying. And its been sounding like he knows it for a while now. Of course he is going to say he would like to stay in the middle of a somewhat successful season. He just knows that the Steelers aren't going to pony up what some other teams would for him, and if they did, certainly not for the years he's looking for, and he's going for his last payday in the league. Don't blame him at all for it. I just hope that Tombert has a plan to revive the OL next year>

I was thinking along the same lines.  I don't think that Faneca's mouth will get him escorted out of the 'Burgh, but his future paycheck will be the determining factor.

Of course, the only reason he needs to be picked up in the first place is because some stunting linebacker flew by Big Red on his way to the quarterback.
