Denver Post: Pats send Mankins letter

The New England Patriots sent offensive lineman Logan Mankins a letter regarding their right to reduce his salary if he doesn't sign his restricted free agent tender by Monday's deadline, the Denver Post reports.

The information is part of an article that details the Denver Broncos sending a similar letter to restricted free agent Elvis Dumervil.

It is unclear if the Patriots told Mankins they would reduce his salary, or if they were simply making him aware that it is within their rights to do so.

Mankins is a restricted free agent who has yet to sign his $3.268 million tender. If he doesn't sign the tender by Monday, the team could reduce his salary to $1.54 million.
