Logan Mankins Will Play Final Six Weeks Of Season

Logan Mankins will play the final six weeks of the season in order to avoid facing the same contract situation next year, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Players engaged in a contract holdout can only receive an accrued season if they play at least six regular season games. Without that accrued season, Mankins’ free agent status would remain the same next year (possible CBA changes aside), and he would again have to deal with the Patriots.

Earlier this season, Ian Rapoport reported that Mankins was prepared to sit out the who season, hoping for a lockout in 2011 to change his situation.
