Patriots Deny There Was Division Within During Talks With OG Logan Mankins

Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft was asked about reports that the organization had internal disagreement regarding contract talks with guard Logan Mankins, who is currently the team’s franchise player. Said Kraft, “I think sometimes agents feel it’s their job to throw out rhetoric to get things moving when they can’t get things moving in the traditional way. The bottom line is I don’t recall any situation since Bill (Belichick) has been our head coach where there has been a divide. We sit down in a room and we discuss things that are big things, and we have a unified front.

That’s the case in this situation too. I think the agent, in this case, feels rhetoric helps to get deals done. We feel like we put a very fair offer on the table. We would like Logan to be a Patriot, retire a Patriot. He’s a great football player. But we’re not allowed to talk to Logan or his agent until all of this (labor situation) gets resolved.”
