Veteran Pro Bowl offensive guard Logan Mankins was caught way off guard when he was traded by the New England Patriots for tight end Tim Wright and a fourth-round draft pick.
“Once you’ve been around this business long enough, you know anything’s possible,” Mankins said. “It’s a business, first and foremost. If you don’t understand that it’s a business, you’re lying to yourself.”
Mankins heard from quarterback Tom Brady after the trade. Brady is displeased by the move.
“I’ll miss Tom for sure and I had a lot of good friends there,” Mankins said. “It’s a sad day not to be with those guys, but I’ve got new teammates here that I’m looking to develop relationships with.”
