Pats to franchise tag Mankins.

The New England Patriots intend to use the franchise tag to retain Pro Bowl offensive guard Logan Mankins, according to the Boston Herald. Mankins has said previously that he doesn't expect to be back and doesn't want to be franchised. However, it looks like he will be back in New England and assigned the franchise tag. He'll be well-compensated, though. Paid the average of the top five guard salaries as a franchise player, Mankins could make about $10.51 million next season.
