The agent for restricted free agent guard Logan Mankins says he hasn’t heard from the Patriots and isn’t sure when a deal with the team will get done.
“There’s nothing that’s happened. We haven’t heard from them,” Mankins’ agent, Frank Bauer, told the Boston Herald. “Everyone in the NFL is on vacation. We just have to see what happens.”
Mankins is one of the handful of restricted free agents who didn’t sign their tenders. When he declined to sign his one-year, $3.26 million tender offer before June 15, the Patriots reduced it to $1.54 million.
All indications are that Mankins and the Patriots are far apart, but Bauer said he could envision reaching an agreement soon.
“I think any time the door opens, a deal can get done,” Bauer said. “Look, I’m good friends with Bill [Belichick], I know Bob Kraft real well. But [labor] circumstances came out and turned everything sideways. But you never know who is going to pick up a phone and say, ‘We need to get this thing done.’ “
