Alan's Pulling Guard Out of Town

Pro Bowler Alan Faneca made it official today - he wants out of Pittsburgh. Faneca reported to the team's mandatory minicamp (along with Troy Polamalu and Clark Haggans, who had also missed the voluntary session a few weeks ago) but expressed his displeasure with the team and said he wants to be traded. That seems unlikely to me, because if the Steelers were going to deal Faneca, I'd imagine that he'd have been gone by the time of the NFL Draft in late April. No matter how you look at it, this is not a good start for Mike Tomlin.

Side Note: Check out the P-G's caption of the photo of Faneca and new o-line coach Larry Zierlein in that story that I linked to above. Glares? Really?
