    I guess he's feeling better now. Hopefully, they start working quickly on a long-term extension.

    Damn, that's a huge relief for the offensive line.

    This is key if they wanted to give him a new deal. He would have to sign his tender before we could offer another contract. Maybe that happens now?

    Sort of a no-brainer decision...but with that E.T. agent of his, the fact he'signed and will report is VERY good news

    Yeah, nothing like forcing your employer to put a gun to your head so you can take home $10 million.

    now sign him long term!

    On a side note, looks like breaking down the franchise number for Ts, G, and Cs as separate positions didn't happen.

    Albert Breer just tweeted that Vincent Jackson is doing the same with the Chargers. Wonder if these actually got something from this settlement.

    Glad to see it. I always thought we should have paid him from the beginning. Hopefully a long term deal can be worked out.

    Deadline to workout a multi-year deal with a franchise player, such as Logan Mankins, is 4 p.m. on Sept. 20.

    $10 million guaranteed for a guard is a nice haul. It's no surprise that he'll play for that level of compensation.

    10 million is too much to pass up. He's 29 but, that's still pretty young for a linemen. Hope they get a long term deal done now.

    Is this confirmed? Have any reporters actually gotten a copy of the CBA yet. At this point it just seems like little trinkets of info are being obtained and reported on. Also that pdf file from a random part of the espn website which no reporter has even accredited yet (the jets/raiders get to cheat one).

    one can only hope......it's getting to that time for the pats to crap or get off the pot regarding an extension for him......they won't tag him again next year.......

    I do find it somewhat bothersome that he is getting more in this year than he has gotten in his previous 6 years combined....the pats got an all-pro OG at a great bargain and don't seem to want to recognize that

    I think it's simply the huge money difference between the RFA tenders they had and the Franchise tenders. They really had very little to lose last year. Walking away from 10 mill on the other hand...

    He should tell the Patriots that he'd be glad to talk about an extension that kicks in after his franchise season.

    Especially when it's only 25% of your real market value. With one bad step, one freak concussion, one freak injury your career and lifetime earning potential is over. I don't know about you, but if there was a chance that everyday I showed up to work I could suffer a freak lobotomy I would want to get as much guranteed money as possible.

    No Jersey Selected

    I have many work days when I feel like I have already suffered a freak lobotomy.
