Logan Mankins to Sign Franchise Tender, Report to Camp on Time

Perhaps more stunning than the sudden lockout resolution itself, guard Logan Mankins will reportedly sign his franchise tender and report to training camp on time, meaning he will not hold out like he did last season.

“Early this morning, Logan spoke with (coach) Bill (Belichick) and both are very happy, happy to get started. Logan is looking forward to being with his teammates and coaches, with a fresh start,” agent Frank Bauer said.

Mankins will be paid a guaranteed salary of $10.1 million. This puts Mankins in line to be an unrestricted free agent next season, but he could also re-sign with the Patriots on a long-term extension, something that didn’t seem possible only days ago.

The Patriots and Mankins have until Sept. 20 to work on a long-term extension under the new CBA.

The 29-year-old Mankins has made three Pro Bowls, including last season when he held out for the first half of the season.
