Former LSU Tiger Alan Faneca made nine Pro Bowls, in 14 seasons, mostly with the Pittsburgh Steelers, as an offensive lineman. "Big Red" won't be playing this year, however, as he's called it a illustrious one at that. Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has the story, below.

The retirement of Alan Faneca from pro football brought a Tweet from colleague Dale Lolley, who covers the Steelers for the Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa.

"Big Red calling it quits makes me feel old," Lolley wrote.

Dear Dale, Lynn Swann calling it quits made me feel old, and he retired after the 1982 season. Swann is half a year younger than I am.
