According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, Patriots players aren’t happy that Logan Mankins was traded on Tuesday.
A league source connected to several Patriots players used a “p” word that rhymes with “missed” to describe the mood in the locker room Tuesday. Many players still felt that Mankins was the best lineman on the team, the source said.
This is what the Patriots do. If they don’t think a player is worth keeping, they’ll get rid of him.
