Veteran guard Logan Mankins started the 2012 season playing alongside a different left tackle than he's used to. Replacing Matt Light at the position is 2011 first round draft pick Nate Solder.
Mankins discussed the new dynamic between himself and Solder. "The more we play together, the more comfortable we will be with each other," Mankins commented. When asked how things have changed for him, Mankins explained that the "understanding" between teammates takes time to develop.
Logan Mankins and Nate Solder continue to cultivate that understanding that will create a productive chemistry.
