In BB we trust... deep breaths... deep breaths. In BB we trust lol....Wow! Logan Mankins gone... Lawyer Milloy revisited? What a character guy and for a TE that Tampa didn't want. He gets the dropsies. They say..
And I agree, MV, whatever mystical method BB has for knowing when "it's time" must have triggered on Mankins. Maybe it was being hurt every season. Maybe it was playing poorly in the clutch. Who knows. BB does some pretty wild things and they tend to work out more often than not.

Lovie said he could have done better, but he was their #1 receiving TE and #2 receiver overall last year by far.
That's right MV he's as close to Hernandez as there is.
No idea what they are going to do about the OL though.

agreed, almost everytime he is right. I think the only one I would still question is Richard Seymour just because he was such a class guy and I think he had alot left in the tank in the BB system. But BB has a great track record for knowing when to "sell" on a player when the stock starts to drop
Seymour held out of camp every time his contract was up for renewal. Everyone in the FO that was coming the next season, and he wasn't the same player he was a few years before. I think in Seymour's case BB/RK knew the battle over money wouldn't be worth the return on investment, so may as well make a deal while he's got value.
FieldYates Trading G Logan Mankins creates $5.755M for Patriots in cap space this year. Mankins will count $4M on the Patriots' 2015 cap. 8/26/14, 11:20 AM
Pats being Pats to get some value and be a viable contender for more years to come. I do feel the Brady years tick tockin.. I Hope we get our 4th Championship with moves like this and being on the doorstep of another.
Lets Hope BB has something up his sleeve because without Mankins, Solder kinda sucks. Now we have our future first ballot hall of famer getting smacked around all year long. Its been the Pats Achilles Heal for years. If they can keep Brady upright they have a chance to win. The fact is, now he will be kissing astro turf all season.
Big cap hit or not, Mankins was to the Oline what Wilfork is to the Dline. If Big Vinny is worth it why not Logan? Bad move on BB's part
I wish for the old days when football was more about winning games than it was the bottom line in the team owners pocket.
