We all know the contract situation with Mankins. Because of the contract status, it's unlikely that Mankins would be moved to another team (he would have to sign the contract first, then be shipped out). There have been some rumors that Chicago could be interested, but may not have the money to re-up Mankins. The Patriots have also reportedly been seeking a first round pick.
With all quiet on the trade front now, it seems as though Logan Mankins may actually be suiting up for the Patriots the final six games of 2010. Whether or not he actually plays is a story of its own.
