Breaking: the Patriots have agreed to parameters of a trade to send Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins to the Bucs for a pick and TE Tim Wright

A day after the Buccaneers met with free-agent Richie Incognito in an effort to bolster their line, the Bucs opted to go one step farther.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Patriots will get a fourth-rounder in addition to tight end Tim Wright in exchange for veteran guard Logan Mankins. That’s not bad, considering Mankins’ big salary numbers ($6.25 million in 2014, $6.75 million in 2015 and 2016).
