Mankins Still Looking for Financial Compensation to Wrap Up Lawsuit

Patriots guard Logan Mankins and Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson have dropped their requests to be free agents, but are still seeking financial compensation to settle the Brady v. NFL antitrust lawsuit, Mike Freeman of reports.

According to Freeman, Mankins and Jackson, who were denied unrestricted free agency during the uncapped 2010 season, are seeking $10 million to sign off on a settlement, which is holding up the process.

Jackson has denied that he’s seeking financial compensation, Freeman notes.

Both players were tendered at the “First- and Third-Round” level in 2010, which carried a $3.268 million base salary. Both players opted to not sign the tender, which resulted in the Patriots and Chargers reducing the amounts to 110% the players’ 2009 salaries.

Mankins and Jackson reported in October, with Mankins playing the season for $815,294 and Jackson earning $280,824 on the season. For Mankins, that was a $2.452 million reduction from his tender amount, while Jackson lost $2.987 million.
