Quoting a source close to Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca, the New York Daily News reported the New York Jets were a virtual lock to sign the All-Pro guard.

The Jets were expected to present a monster contract offer to Faneca, an unrestricted free agent. The offer was said to be a four-year, $32 million package that includes $20 million in guarantees, too good for him to refuse.

The San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams also were believed to be in the hunt for Faneca, but the Jets were the clear front-runner. One person close to the situation described it as a virtual done deal. Faneca, 31, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, could be in New York by Sunday to sign the deal.
