1) BRADY is on track to be extended soon, hopefully before the season starts. 2) MANKINS is currently a holdout. Neither side seems inclined to move any time soon. If the patriots want Mankins or even a 2nd round draft choice, they will need to make the first move. If strategy were in the hands of folks here, Mankins would be sitting out for the season, and the patriots would get at most a 3rd at the end of the 2012 draft as compensation when he goes. 3) There are other possibilities of extensions, but none seem likely at the moment (Gostkowski and Light come to mind).
