A couple more New England Patriots have been added to the NFL Network's list of "The Top 100: Players of 2011." The rundown resumed Sunday night with Nos. 31 through 40.
AFC East players on the list so far:
35. Vince Wilfork, Patriots nose tackle
39. Logan Mankins, Patriots left guard
47. Nick Mangold, Jets center
50. Wes Welker, Patriots receiver
61. Brandon Marshall, Dolphins receiver
62. Jerod Mayo, Patriots inside linebacker
63. Cameron Wake, Dolphins outside linebacker
76. Santonio Holmes, Jets receiver
79. D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets tackle
One more Patriot has yet to be revealed, and we can safely assume who that will be.
Evans signed a seven-year contract worth $56.7 million in May 2010. The Patriots were able to extend a one-year, $3.26 million qualifying offer to Mankins last year because he was a restricted free agent. Mankins declined to sign it, permitting the Patriots to slash the offer to $1.54 million in June.
