Tampa Bay reportedly had maligned OG Richie Incognito in for a visit yesterday but it appears the Bucs have addressed their  need for an interior lineman by trading for six time pro-bowler Logan Mankins of the New England Patriots.  ESPN.com is reporting that the Bucs have sent TE Tim Wright and a draft pick to the Patriots in exchange for the long-time Patriots Guard.

I'm sure Brady is stoked.

 

The Bucs need this...their OL is terrible.  Nice move for them.

Pats trolls telling us what a genius move this is in ......3....2....1

 

Don't forget how they will include that Mankins went happily because he believes in the "Patiot Way."

 

Pats traded for a TE and and productive one at that. They are clearly making contingency plans for Gronk's eventual IR placement.

Why would you risk any OL chemistry issues days before the start of a season?  Bizarre move.

 

Don't worry, Bill Belichick is a genius. He wakes up in the morning and pisses excellence. I'm sure he has a plan....

 

This is nothing for Pats fans to fear. Take off your green-colored glasses you fag homer.

Sorry, I was at the doctors.

 

Genius?  No.  Mankins is a good to very good player. 

 

Is he worth 10.5 million cap hit?  Probably not. 

 

Good move for both teams.

Not saying it's a genius move, but Mankins is 32 years old and has lost a step or two over the last couple of seasons. No different than Mangold and D'Brick.  From all camp reports, Josh Kline has been very impressive and is 24 years old. And it's not like Mankins is a LT.

 

Not sure how an UDFA WR will work out as a NFL TE, guess we'll see.

I don't think Mankins is happy with his contract and the Pats are worried about that since his holdout a few years ago.  They tagged him and generally busted his balls.

Pats did a similar thing years ago when they dumped Lawyer Milloy about ten seconds before opening day...didn't matter.

If Tim Wright can pick up the offense, and develop chemistry with Brady he is a beast waiting to happen, it all depends on his football IQ, the talent is there.

Plus he's a Schiano guy. Belichick has a hard on for Greg Schiano.

Now we get to hear how Tim Wright is the second coming of Tony Gonzalez just because the Pats picked him up. Anyone else trades for this guy and its a non-story.
