      FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Two-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins
has reported to the New England Patriots.
      The team announced Tuesday that Mankins had reported after
refusing to sign a tender offer as an unrestricted free agent. He
missed the team's three-day minicamp in June, all of training camp
and the first seven games after saying he wanted to be traded.
      The Patriots drafted him in the first round in 2005 and he
started all 80 regular-season games and nine postseason games in
his first five seasons.
      He was chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009.
