But why show your hand. Doesn't help in your bargaining position with Mankins(he and his agent know your weaker and can leverage that) or with the rest of the teams you're selecting in the draft with(now they KNOW you're in need of a high interior line selection).

I'd negotiate and sign or trade Mankins FIRST, and if you came to terms and Mankins lifts pen to paper you're on the phone "Nick?" "Yeah?" "Buh-bye."

I think you're right but I've also read the Pats have long known he would be released.

I want to see the pats use Taylor Price more this year. He is 6'0 ran some very good routes in the fins game. He had a year under his belt to learn the postion. He could be the deep threat the pats need.

Why hurt your depth and negotiating position AND show your hand somewhat as in even greater need on the interior O-line before the draft?

Makes no sense, unless roster bonuses were to be saved I guess...
Another thought on that: When they cut him before this league year ends, the remaining 1.75 million of his signing bonus won't count against next years cap (if there's a cap next year of course).

Dan Connolly earns a salary bonus. Talk about value...

Quote:
Patriots offensive lineman Dan Connolly, who started 13 games last season, reached incentives in his contract that will boost his pay in 2011.

Connolly was scheduled to earn $725,000 next season, but that salary has been bumped up to $1.025 million. The incentives were included in Connolly's deal when the pact was renegotiated in December of 2009.

The 28-year-old Connolly was one of the team's unsung performers last season, filling in for left guard Logan Mankins for the first seven games of the season when Mankins stayed away from the team in a contract dispute. Once Mankins returned, it thrust Connolly into a reserve role for a week. But when starting right guard Stephen Neal sustained a season-ending shoulder injury, Connolly filled that void.

Of course, Connolly's most notable play in 2010 was his 71-yard kickoff return against the Packers on Dec. 19.
