PFW: Still a Chance OL Mankins Plays in 2010

The ship has not sailed on OG Logan Mankins playing for the team this year, Pro Football Weekly hears. Although Mankins is stubborn and the team and his representatives have not had any serious negotiations since May, there is this to consider: Mankins is a football player. And, we hear, the bottom line is that he’s not likely to give up $3.27 million this season by choosing not to play this season when all is said and done.

So far, the team’s lead negotiator in this case has been Floyd Reese, but it’s possible that Bill Belichick could act as a closer and get involved late in the process of trying to get Mankins back with the team. Mankins’ presence becomes an even greater priority with the report that his potential replacement, Nick Kaczur, may miss the entire season after undergoing back surgery.
