Mankins Still Waiting for a New Deal From the Pats

The Boston Herald has the latest on Logan Mankins, as he continues to wait for the Pats to get him a new contract:

A month ago, New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins went public about his frustration with his contract. Since then the Patriots and Mankins have not communicated according to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, at this point, it is unknown if Mankins will show up for training camp on July 28th. He has skipped all organized team activities and minicamp.

“There’s nothing that’s happened. We haven’t heard from them,” Mankins’ agent, Frank Bauer, told the Herald last night. “Everyone in the NFL is on vacation. We just have to see what happens.” Mankins had refused to sign his one-year restricted free agent tender worth $3.26 million, and the Patriots reduced it to $1.54 million, he is not under contract at this point but sources have indicated the Pats offered Mankins a deal worth $7 million annually, the guard’s camp puts it at seven years and $6.5 million annually.

The guaranteed money is not clear, if 2010 had a salary cap, Mankins would have been a free agent. “I think any time the door opens, a deal can get done,” Bauer said. “Look, I’m good friends with Bill (Belichick), I know Bob Kraft real well. But (labor) circumstances came out and turned everything sideways. But you never know who is going to pick up a phone and say, ‘We need to get this thing done.’ “

  1. Why would he not take the 7 mil deal. The dude is overrated. I don’t think there is a guard in the league worth 7 mil a year
