NFL Rumors: Patriots Intend On Franchising Mankins?

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that the New England Patriots will indeed apply the franchise tag to Logan Mankins.

Mankins and the Patriots have already butted heads early on into the 2010 season so he isn’t going to be happy about the tag even though the tag will pay him a much higher salary than the tender he signed towards the middle of last season.

It will be interesting to see if Mankins and the NFLPA choose to contest the matter considering that the NFLPA has already come out and stated that it will challenge any franchise tag that players have a disagreement with.
