The odds of the Bears signing free agent guard Alan Faneca seem increasingly remote.
While Jerry Angelo has had conversations with Faneca's representative, he has not been among the GMs that have expressed the most interest, according to a knowledgeable source.
Fanaca, 33, was released by the Jets on Saturday after the team drafted UMass offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse.
The Bears signed veteran tackle Orlando Pace last offseason hoping he had a year or two left. He didn't, which was obvious early in the exhibition season. Faneca's play has also declined, but not the extent that Pace's did. The nine-time Pro Bowler remains a solid player, and will help whichever team picks him up.
Unless something changes, it won't be the Bears.
