OG Logan Mankins Considering Signing His Tender Offer?

The Patriots put the franchise tag on All-Pro guard Logan Mankins before the lockout began. The NFLPA (since disbanded) protested teams’ ability to franchise a player into a league year that doesn’t exist because the CBA expired. But the use and legality of the franchise tag has been a peripheral issue during the legal wrangling between players and owners.

It’s widely assumed the franchise tag will still be in play when the CBA gets worked out and Mankins will be in line to make more than $10 million for 2011. When asked if he would sign the franchise tender. “I don’t know,” Mankins replied. “We have a lot of time. We don’t even know if we’ll have a season at this point. I’m hoping they get this resolved before the season so we can play football in time.”
