    All I think is that He would be like a John Runyan was for us last year.

    He might be good but does he have enough in the tank?

    He has plenty in the tank, but A.) He's too expensive and B.) who do you want to replace.....Dielman's not going anywhere and we have a young RG in Vasquez who should be even better next year.

    If Faneca played RT, I'd say give him a look...but this is reality...we're not considering him.

    Faneca is an upgrade to Vasquez. Dude has not missed a start in over a decade. Let Vasquez be the back up and learn or try Vasquez at RT (I do not think he will do well at tackle). Vasquez was thrown into the fire after Goff was released. There was no grooming whatsoever. Now Vasquez has a mentor for a couple of years.

    This is the kind of QUALITY depth I like and we need.

    exactly, you gotta learn from someone and he didnt have that opportunity. we really got the shaft on the line last year with injuries and such, but now we have a chance to have like trump said, quality depth.

    According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Faneca agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.5 million deal, which includes a $300,000 signing bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus.

    Based on all the injuries we sustained to our fat boys on both sides last year, I do think AJ's ready to cheetah strike on any fat boys he sees available that he likes.

    Would love to have him on the right side and let Vasquez learn behind him and be the primarybackup for Left and Right guards for the next year!
