New Orleans turned elsewhere, inking Jonathan Goodwin to a three-year, $8.5 million pact Wednesday. Faine could interest the Steelers and Rams.

Re: Faine Nuts

I am sure the Saints would love to have him back, but never at his asking price. In all fairness, I've read that Faine is considered the best available center. Well, now that Goodwin is back, good luck Faine.

Re: Faine Nuts

Give me a break. Faine was always called out by this group. Now, he wants the big dough? Let me fly. Goodwin looks solid. My God, we just paid 8.5M for a back-up center!

Oh lord in heaven one of my prayers for the Saints have been answered. Goodwin to start and Faine to get the boot. It is no secret I do not like Faine, and I believe the Saints saw enough in Goodwin and their other backups that paying him what he seems to think he is worth was LUDICROUS.

Re: Faine Nuts

Well now because he is the best FA C on the market does not make him worth the money he is seeking. This is a weak FA year. Next year should be better. Thats one reason I hate to see us eat up alot of cap space this year. Good luck is all I can say.
Remember that for all the FA out there.

Re: Faine Nuts

I like Jeff Faine...the way we got him on draft day 2 years ago worked out perfectly...but he is going to get more money than he deserves and the Saints arent going to pay it. Good luck to him wherever he lands but there is no way he will be back here.

Re: Faine Nuts

I'm kind of glad they're letting him walk, not because I think he's a bad player or a guy we don't need, but simply because his asking price is more than his importance to the team. Goodwin didn't miss a beat when Faine was out and there's plenty of young talent on the line. Maybe we take a late round flyer on a center or look around in free agency for a backup.

Interior lineman are easily replaced. Good luck Faine... was always one of his biggest supporters.
