Patriots biggest concern is offensive line 7/25
Mon, 25 Jul 2011|
Our Sports Tonight crew discusses that the biggest concern for the Patriots is their offensive line.
Most pressing concern this week has to -- the offensive line Logan Mankins does He show what what state of mind at the end they might get something done with him and then right -- told Matt -- is unrestricted. I think candy there's going to be some really dumb money spent this offseason and next week. Because there's so many teams -- to get to the floor to the mandatory spending limit I think Matt Light is exact kind of guy that's gonna get overpaid so what do you think with those. I agree I think lights gone he's gonna get not only the money but I think you'll get multi years from somebody in the Patriots don't wanna do that they drafted their left tackle and -- They may be forced to start him right away but I think Mankins is a big issue here to me He should be the foundation of your offensive line the next five. You're transitioning and other areas you get young tackles Stephen Neal retires opens getting older. That should be the guy who you builder round of -- could lower his ten million dollar cap number you're trying to for -- some money so to me. It makes sense to pay Logan Mankins. Oh okay it took two courses here do they make a new deal like Federer thinks -- will. And if you have -- on the left side he's he's gonna be able to help the rookie play left tackle yes. I and I mean that's why I think he's so valuable as you do wanna play that left tackle so maybe even some money was spent on Matt Light give it to Logan Mankins lock him up. And we know he's gonna tell. It's not just Logan Mankins supplements Alge Crumpler Matt Light got help and He was a Pro Bowl left tackle so. The one issue to me is the playbook you know would -- be mentally up to speed it's not physically we know physically He won't be ready to compete immediately. But mentally. We know is -- sign Kenny pass Dante Scarnecchia is test and just get out there on the field -- franchise.
