Patriots always are good for a shock or two, but no one saw this coming.

The Patriots are ironing out a trade that would send badass OL Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay for a pick and TE Tim Wright:

First reaction: HOLY SHIT! WHAT!?

Second reaction: *stunned silence*

Mankins has been a staple of the Pats O line ever since he was drafted back in 2005 and has been at least a me fan favorite for sometime.  His production has gone down over the past few years and this does free up a bit of cap space, maybe to extend one Mr. Darrelle Revis.  But still, this is a stunning move.

Tim Wright is a young TE (out of Rutgers, WOOOOOOW) who had 54 catches, 571 yards and 5 touchdowns last season (also his rookie season).  He could be a nice fit for this offense.

Still, sad to see you go Mankins.
