Who would have thought.
After a year of murmurs that he wanted out of New England, Patriots guard Logan Mankins is staying put.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the Patriots and Mankins agreed to a six-year deal.
With the new contract Mankins, 29, will most likely be a Patriot for his entire career. A three-time pro-bowler, Mankins was the 32nd overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. Despite a shortened season in 2010, after holding out for the first eight weeks, the Fresno State product still managed to make the pro-bowl.
With the signing of Matt Light last week, the Patriots offensive line should still be one of the teams strongest positions in 2011.
