Reports out of New York say that the Jets have released nine-time Pro Bowl OG Alan Faneca.

Faneca, a 13th-year veteran who has started every game the past eight seasons, became expendable when the Jets selected UMass OL Vladimir Ducasse in the second round of this year's draft.

Faneca, 33, is on the downside of his career and is due a high salary ($7.5 million in 2010) — all factors that reportedly worked against him in New York.
