    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Are you crazy? He holds out because he can't get the security of a long term contract, so he refuses to risk injury. He would LOVE it if they sit him out.

    In fact, he may have come back early (speculating here) BECAUSE they told him he'd sit out 2 games.

    He will be all minty fresh. He will either start to ragdoll DEs or miss assignments. Cannot decide which

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    I think he's watched a team that has the best record in the NFL and has a darn decent chance to go deep into the playoffs and he wants to be a part of it instead of being on the outside. He's what you call a great fair weather friend.

    He won't be getting $35M he'll be getting the pro-rated amount of the tender which IIRC is $1.6m.

    Maybe he should have taken that contract :bricks:

    He may realize a few more million wont buy happiness, hey, his teammates love him, we're perennial contenders with a bright future for the next 4-5 years why wouldnt he want to be part of it?
    If he can play, I say welcome back Logan, no hard feelings, now go kick some ass

    If he can still play at a high level he'll probably be offered a similar contract after this year

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    I hear you, but that scenario is just a hair's breadth from "I COULDN'T STAND IT ANYMORE!!!"...which would be a guy who really wants to get back on the field with his teammates and compete. No way to tell which it is from here, but I'm sure the coaches will know soon enough.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    maybe he wants the accrued season and wants the money for sitting on the bench. 200k per game or whatever...that's 200k to sit on the bench if he wants to.

    If he tells BB, "look I don't want to be a distraction but I don't want to play", they'll pay him the 200k per game and he gets to stay at his ranch. What else can the pats do? Cut him? That's what he wants.

    I'd imagine BB will sit him down to see his mindset. Maybe he wants to play hard for half a season to better his chances for a good contract next year.

    In any case, he has to be completely out of football shape. Hasn't had pads on or hit anyone in 10 months? That's going to take a while to get used to...that's what training camp and preseason is for. They really want to put him into a game being that rusty and ask him to protect Brady? Doesn't seem likely.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Agreed. Mankins is taking an enormous gamble. He is turning down approximately $20 million dollars guaranteed in order to play for $800,000 to become a free agent. Not playing an all pro guard, and preventing any injury risk, would seem to serve Mankin's purposes, but not the Patriots.

    About 2 inches, depending on when we last cut our hair.

    I ahve no idea what else you could be asking about.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Ahhh that one :D Good question, and only BB really knows apart from Kraft.

    But considering the offer they made him and that we haven't signed any large deals since, I'd say there's still a lot of room.

    And with the recent trend of big contract signings containing rolling guarantees, Mankins may have to accept those as well to protect the team in the event of a lock-out.
