    He's a jerk who was probably hoping the team would suffer without him to help his own case, only it didn't happen.

    But he's a jerk who presents an immediate upgrade in terms of run blocking out of the LG position and helps with our O-line depth.

    Just guessing of course but I don't think it's crazy to think he's reporting early based on some contract discussions or resumed discussion. Bill needs to rebuild the line and 3 new OL players is one more than 2. The line will need a vet ... he's the best prospect to be the Ol leader for the next 4-5 years.

    Look, it's just like every year. Brady struggles when the line can't adequately protect him. This year that has only cost us one game, so far. If Mankins can help keep Brady clean he will play.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Ty Law did and said far worse. And BB kissed and made up because it was the right thing for the team.

    And frankly I think Mankins situation is something not a lot of players will look to replicate. He's lost out on a ton of current money and when all is said and done with his next contract I bet he'll come out even.

    Finally, this will happen again regardless.

    Mankins is as good as his word. If he puts the Pats uni on, he will give it his all. What kind of shape he is in is another question. A good hay season might be the answer to the Patriots season.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    You might be right with that pick. I'm amused by these fans who are punking Mankins and hope he doesn't play..........right up to the point where he makes a hellashish block to clear the Lawfirm for a crucial TD, and all will be forgotten. You can take that to the bank.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    I'm not sure I agree with that statement. Ty Law called Belichick a liar, Logan Mankins called the organization liars. But Law never held out, missed any practices or games. So I'd say their statements were equally offensive, but Mankins' actions were worse.
    So first you say this is something not a lot of players will look to replicate, then you say it will happen again regardless. :confused:

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    I agree. Either it's a good-faith move on his part, or perhaps there's a solid framework for a deal and he's happy enough that he's coming back.

    Reiss just mentioned an important point on how Mankins is well-liked within the locker room. He'll be welcomed back by his teammates, and that is what really matters. Still, you'd think more people would be happy about getting a Pro Bowl LG in his prime back into the line-up.

    I wonder if BB just turns around and trades him...the Patriots really really need more picks...

    People are so ridiculous. Mankins makes the team better which makes
    me happy. If he helps the pats win a super bowl, are you superfans going to be upset that they won with a guard who held out?

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Mankins wants to come back. Presumably, he wants to come back early in order to be ready for the PITT game.

    Mankins will make the team better if we play him.

    It will cost the team almost nothing for Mankins to play.

    Mankins will play. He may start or not this week.
    ===========

    Welcome back Mankins!

    Price to the practice squad. Maybe it wasn't a coincidence that they didn't fill the last PS slot.

    I think Taylor is just fine sitting out for the next 6-7 weeks. Give him 10 carries in the last game or two and pound the 3 headed monster in the playoffs.

    Why? Ty Law was always under contract. Mankins was not.

    Re: Logan Mankins signs tender

    Miguel has our cap number at 132.5 million ... no cap of course.

    Next year no:

    Moss 6.4 million

    Koppen 2.4 million

    Light 4.5 million

    Taylor 1.6 million

    Mankins 1.5 million

    So if we're at the assumed cap number for next year ...

    Moss, Koppen and Taylor are like $10 million ... we can safely sign mankins even now i would think ... but could we safely sign mankins and Moss perhaps not if the cap is lower than $130 million.

    I'm sure i messed this up somewhere ... hopefully the numbers are close enough.
