Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald writes that Logan Mankins will definitely have the franchise tag placed on him during the 14-day window given teams, and says it could potentiallyÂ happen as early as today.Â
Rapoport speculates that instead of just a one year deal for the offensive lineman, the Patriots may be using it to extend the negotiation period with Mankins, much like they did with Vince Wilfork.
