    Re: Mankins Franchised

    He can say he's pissed all he wants, but I cant see how the Mankins camp could not have seen this coming. especially from the Pats. Maybe Mankins should have did what Samuels did. Show up in camp and play the entire 2010 season with the promise of no franchise tag the following season. Although, Im sure the Pats learned their lesson on that one after Samuels left.

    Re: Mankins Franchised

    Mankins wasn't tagged last season. He was tendered as a RFA. They were not going to promise to never franchise him. Just like they wouldn't promise to never franchise Branch - which was something his agent requested in order to get him in during the final year of his rookie deal. That sets a really bad precedent. Promising not to franchise a player a second time (consecutively) is almost a financial no brainer given the 120% rule.

    Re: Mankins Franchised

    He has to play for 17 weeks in order to say see ya and get paid. While the tag is guaranteed, that's only if you show up...

    If he tries to pull the same shenanigans this year, he loses ~$550K/wk.

    Why does Mankins getting tagged mean Light is gone?

    Re: Mankins Franchised

    because I'm not hearing any news about him, and that's what people are anticipating based on what I've read.

    Re: Mankins Franchised

    I wouldn't assume that since the Pats would have to sign another tackle to take his place - i.e., no cost savings. Light went on record this past week as saying he and the Pats had agreed to wait until after the CBA is worked out before they begin negotiations on a new contract.

    If the Pats end up to be in need of saving cap space the players most likely to be targeted would be one or more of Tully Banta-Cain, Nick Kaczur, James Sanders and Stephen Neal.

    Why? The tag was never a consideration with Light

    I read on PFT that the Franchise tag will mean he will earn a lot more in one year than he has in his entire career so far... I think he will do what Asante did, skip camp and then turn up for week 1, that is just too much money to turn down. That is of course, subject to change with the CBA.

    At the end of the day, I understand why players don't like the Franchise tag, but it some cases, it works out in the players favor, like Walter Jones, who was tagged every year, missed camp, and ended up with even more $$$ than he would have got if he had signed long term.

    Re: Mankins Franchised

    He is a UFA who isn't as 'special' as Mankins, and they can't do anything until the CBA is sorted, but teams can use the franchise tag before the CBA is in place.

    :)

    And Mankins, as a guard making 2 year's worth of salary each year, will say "thank you very much". BTW, he would make over $10M this year and $12M next.
