The deadline is March 4th.
It's likely the Patriots will tender Mankins at the highest level, meaning first and third round picks will be required to sign him.
Thanks for the info. If that's the case....I'd rather draft Lupati at 17. He'd be younger, cheaper, and has a ton of upside. If we could get mankins for a 2nd tho....I'd make that trade in a heartbeat! We could go OT @#13, Safety or DL with 17, and have our franchise LG already in place in this scenario. That would be a SOLID offseason before/if we add a free agent or 2.
