Trade for Logan Mankins?


We have talked about trades for skill positions(Vincent Jackson, Lynch), but we never have talked about a trade for an offensive linemen.  As was reported last week, the Patriots Logan Mankins, who has still yet to sign his RFA tender, was being shopped for Vincent Jackson. 

 

Now, it's evident that the Pats were interested in getting that big time WR, that they new they were loosing in Moss, and we clearly don't have that guy on our team to trade to them, but we have some defensive talent, most recognizable, Carlos Rogers, who may spark some interest to the Pats. 

 

I don't know how I would feel about trading Rogers, but I don't believe that he will be back next season.  I also believe Barnes could be the guy to step in if Rogers were to leave.  I don't like Buchannon at all, but Westbrook could prove to be serviceable as a nickle.

 

The other option, and it's one I don't really like, is giving up a late round pick(5th), and a 3rd in 2012.  BB likes to hoard draft picks, and he has to realize that Mankins is too pissed off with all that has happened to him, to sign again with the Pats.  He will be a FA at seasons end, and he knows he will get good money for his services to the highest bidder.  BB is the type of guy who would trade him just to show that he is still boss. 

 

I'm sure the Redskins would be willing to work out a fair-market contract with the 28 year old pro-bowler.  I'd gladly take him for the next 4-5 years, and he would no doubt be an up-grade to Hicks/Licht/Montgomery.  He also runs the zone blocking scheme in NE, so the learning curve wouldn't be that great.

 

If willing, Mankins could move to RG, and we could plug Licht in at C.
