    In Response to Re: Mankins signs Extension! : What's overboard? I find Mankins behavior repugnant in calling our team's owner a liar and would prefer that they sent him packing. I have no use, affection, respect or loalty for anybody who has ever held out on this team.

    How did Mankins hold out on his team if he was never under contract? The guy didn't miss a game in 6 years as a starter and absolutely played out an under valued contract. 90% of the players in this league wouldn't have finished out Mankins contract but he did. So what is your issue big cat?

    There are no guarrentted contracts in the NFL, if a team can cut you and not pay you, it should really be able to go the other way. Your employer can fire you, but you can quit and go work for someone else. In the NFL only half of that is true.

    all that needs to be said (from bob kraft):

    "Probably you’ll see our good friend Logan Mankins will be signed up soon, hopefully to be a Patriot for life,"
     "we think that Logan is among the best there is at his position".

    Remember when he was drafted?  Many Pats fans were upset; had other plans..didn't know who this guy was.

    In Response to Re: Mankins signs Extension! : Sorry, but and his agent were completely out of line. Using the press like that, trying to put pressure onthe Pats when they are trying to be smart heading into the Lockout, was unprofessional and wrong. I thought that was low class as was the hint that he wasn't offered a deal in a timely fashion, him thinking he needed a deal before Brady and Wilfork, etc, was also totally unprofessional. He was offered a deal. Twice. His agent misled him and he wasn't listening with regards to his own understanding of what was going on around him.  Not totally all his fault, but his agent blows. Also, he plays on a great O Line and has Scarnecchia here with Brady throwing the ball.   He's not John Hannah.  Not a huge fan of seeing really poor behavior rewarded, but I would have more respect for him if he spoke up and acted appreciative, instead of like a victim. All the players in the same market as he were re-upped around the same time. Mangold was drafted in 2006 and a top notch Center.    Mankins offered Mangold money, refused it, thought the CBA would be BIGGER in terms of cap, and he was WRONG. Mankins should be THRILLED they wanted to pay him like that to play here, and he also should have appreciated they didn't want to botch the deals with Brady and Wilfork, going into the Lockout. You can't just wildly throw money at players otherwise we are looking like the Jets. In the end, yes, it has worked out.  It's a situation where you know what you have and can now forecast a bit easier as well.

    After Kraft saw him man-handle Prince Albert the other day in practice, he said, "Sign him now before he's off to Logan Airport"...lol...

    Just admit it Rusty, you were dead wrong on this one. No way the old deal had anything close to $21 million guaranteed.  Bauer was smart to advise Mankins not to sign the deal the Pats initially offered him.  Mankins is probably depositing somewhere between $7 and $16 million more in the bank today then he would have two years ago had he signed that original deal.

    In Response to Re: Mankins signs Extension! : Actually, the new deal is $30 million guaranteed. The Globe report hit the nail on the head ... it dwarfs Mangold's and Evans' ... as it should. Considering he never actually even made it to the open market, where his deal would have likely been higher, that is quite a haul. But then, they know his value better than anyone.

    I was taking the $21 million from Rusty's post.  Just read the article. $30 mill guaranteed . .  that's nearly the whole amount of the Pats' last offer!  

    Boy, a bet Mankins is elated he hired Bauer and not Rusty as his agent! Smile
