    Multiple tweets indicating long term deal coming for Mankins that will make him a Patriot for "life."

    Guys on 98.5 are quoting R Kraft as saying this could be done soon. Excellent.

    That will generate some cap room, as he comes off the 1 year franchise tag with a full cap charge to a multiyear deal with a big bonus prorated over the entire contract.

    EXCELLENT!

    May his nasty ways be forever contagious among the offensive linemen. :D

    Awesome news! Mankins, Vollmer, Solder and Cannon has the potential to be a devastating line for years to come.

    Good to hear. Although I do think this team could survive his loss, but he is one of the two best guards in the league and does bring an attitude to the offense.

    I think we're all very happy about this but you may need to settle down.

    Lifetime contract. I like it. What's the average life expectancy for a guard, around 65 years?

    Beyond just the he's-the-best-guard-in-football discussion, this could be very good for the franchise. Took a disgruntled-with-his-contract player and reached a constructive compromise agreement. It could demonstrate the respect players have for the family.

    For Logan, our apologies, but you may never see this thing called free agency.

    His $10M cap hit this year gets smaller, and cap space is opened up.........I think.

    That..... is awesome!!!

    Solder-Mankins-Cannon-Vollmer has the potential to be an amazing group for years to come.

    One interesting point: I'm not saying the Patriots will or should do so, but if they feel they can afford to carry a lot of that hit this year, they may well do so, in order to reduce the cap hit in future years.
