To no one's surprise, offensive lineman Logan Mankins is not in Foxboro.

When asked about Mankins this morning, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said during his press conference that, "All the players who are here are under contract, and Logan's not under contract."

Published reports have said that Mankins' agent, Frank Baur, and New England haven't spoken since he demanded publicly to be traded back on June 14th.
