It is hindsight but we have Too Much money tied up in Logan Mankins.

Not for everyone...


In 10 years when we look back on the Belichick era, the Mankins situation is going to always be in the top 2 or 3 strangest personnel moves he made. The whole thing stunk for a year+ and then he ends up getting an (IMO) incredibly rich deal.

I'm sure you remember how outspoken I was against it. It will always be the strangest move to me, simply for the fact that the value was so poor, which is so unlike the Pats under Belichick. I still can't imagine he thought that a guard was worth that kind of money, and I wonder if Kraft possibly got involved.


And that was after Mankins took a shot at the Pats and Kraft himself. It was so unlike the Pats to pay him.

It might even be a $3-4 million cap hit this season, based off a quick estimate

That makes a lot more sense...the 8.25 cap hit sounded all wrong. 4 million leaves over ten mil to play with. Plenty of room for a DE at least.

Real numbers on #Patriots deal with Vollmer are in (tho @ProFootballTalk had some yesterday). $7M signing bonus. 4 years/$16.75M base. So...

On Vollmer's deal: Pats protected team for injury: Has to play 80 or 90% to see extra $9.25M. If he plays 79% each year, just gets the base

For those #Patriots fans asking about Sebastian Vollmer's cap number. I'm told it's $3M for 2013.

It seems like we are back loading a lot of these signees. How much and when is the salery cap supposed to raise significantly?

There's no way the first year hit is that much. That might be what he's getting, but if they're including the signing bonus in that figure, which is $7 million, that's prorated, as you all well know. I bet his cap hit is more like $3 million this year.
