Bucs Acquire 6x Pro Bowl G from Pats

Posted Aug 26, 2014

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced the acquisition of guard Logan Mankins from the New England Patriots in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and an undisclosed draft pick.


A three-time captain with New England, Mankins has earned six Pro Bowl berths (2007, 2009-13) and five All-Pro selections (2007, 2010-13) in his career. The Catheys Valley, California native was also selected to the New England Patriots All-2000s and 50th Anniversary teams. In 2012, he won the Ed Block Courage Award, given annually to players who are voted by their teammates as role models of inspiration, sportsmanship and courage.

Mankins (6-4, 308) originally entered the league as a first-round pick (32nd overall) by New England in the 2005 NFL Draft. The Fresno State product has spent every season of his nine-year career with the Patriots, starting all 130 games he played in, as well as 17 postseason games, featuring two Super Bowl appearances.

While with New England, Mankins was part of one of the top offenses in the NFL, finishing in the top 10 in points scored every season he has been in the league, including three seasons where the team led the NFL (2007, 2010, 2012). Additionally, the Patriots ranked in the top 10 in yardage in eight of Mankins’ nine seasons with the team (2005, 2007-13). He has blocked for two different 1,000-yard rushers, and was a part of an offensive line that has allowed the sixth-fewest sacks in the NFL since 2005.

Wright played in all 16 games for the Buccaneers last season, starting eight, finishing the year with 54 receptions for 571 yards and five touchdowns. Wright joined Tampa Bay as an undrafted free agent following the 2013 NFL Draft.
