    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Draft a nice Center Mike Brewster next year and the transformation is complete. Rebuilt without missing a beat. How does that happen?

    Let's all just hope Mr. Cannon has a complete and sustained recovery, and that Mr. Solder continues to become what he's seems to be becoming.

    Couldn't agree more. It won't be easy because Brady has to have a center who can keep up with his game and Koppen is as smart as they come, however that is the last piece for the complete rebuild of the OL, and I'm all for using a really high pick to get a C the quality of Mangold or Pouncey.

    Belichik has done a phenomenal job of rebuilding this team while keeping them on top.

    My thought as well.

    On the other hand, part of this year's allowed hit is "borrowing" cap room from future years, so they could do a conventional deal structure and then forgo the borrowing. That leaves them more flexibility to "borrow" after all if something major occurs over the course of the year.
