Video: Could Logan Mankins torpedo CBA?
By Tim Graham
As if we didn't have enough to obsess about ...
New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins and San Diego Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson, antitrust lawsuit plaintiffs, reportedly want to be declared unrestricted free agents or receive $10 million for their trouble before signing off on dropping the suit. The suit must be resolved before the collective bargaining agreement can be finalized.
Mankins and Jackson have been trapped by the uncapped season and were unable to be free agents last year. The minimum service time was raised temporarily from four years to six years, forcing them to remain with their teams for qualifying money.
