Draft Scout Logan Mankins News
08/26/14 - G Logan Mankins was traded to the Buccaneers in exchange for second-year tight end Tim Wright and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
The deal, shipping a six-time Pro Bowler and team captain to Tampa Bay less than two weeks before the regular season sent shockwaves through the New England locker room.

He and his family have great morals, great ethics, great work ethic. Tremendous guy. He does what he says. Everything about the guy is genuine and authentic.
"It's all coming to us pretty quickly, so, really, I just reflect. I truly hope to have a great relationship with him as we go ahead in life."
"He's the type of guy that you don't know if you'll get that type of teammate ever again," Patriots co-captain Devin McCourty said. "He's a tough guy – the different injuries he's played through, being out there every snap, every chance he could
