After being franchise tagged earlier this offseason and staging a dramatic holdout through most of 2010, the Patriots have finally signed guard Logan Mankins to a long-term deal.

Detroit running back Mikel LeShoure, their second-round pick in last April's draft, has been lost for the year with a torn Achilles tendon. Thus far, most of the offseason concerns about overweight players post-lockout have been unsubstantiated. What we apparently should have been worried about? Achilles injuries.

Did the Chargers do enough to fix their horrific special teams? Will Andy Studebaker get enough pressure on the quarterback for Kansas City? Can Oakland's young offensive line keep Jason Campbell upright? Is Denver's old secondary going to sink or swim?

This will keep the Saints from having to bump Matt Tennant to the starting lineup after Jonathan Goodwin's defection to the 49ers. Kreutz reportedly agreed to a $2 million base salary for one year, plus incentives that could double the value of the deal.

Dave Duerson chose to give his brain to The Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, and the early results from their experiments on the brains of deceased football players are pretty hard to stomach.

Some teams may proclaim to be the "dream team," but everybody is dreaming about their new futures in this week's best quotes. Except of course for Chad Ochocinco, who hasn't slept since he stopped eating McDonald's.

Former All-Pro Colts defensive end Bubba Smith passed away on Wednesday afternoon at the age of 66. No cause of death was immediately announced. He was a Super Bowl champion with the 1971 Colts and was named to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988.

No one can say Tarvaris Jackson doesn't have any weapons to work with. According to John Clayton, the Seahawks have outbid the Raiders for the services of the 26-year-old tight end. No monetary details yet, but it's probably a fairly big contract if the Raiders offered Miller anything close to the money they gave to the rest of their free agents.
EDIT: Here's the contract. Five years, $34 million, and $17 million guaranteed. That's all it took!

San Francisco nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, coming off a season where he was franchised and played extremely well, reportedly settled for a one-year deal with New Orleans. Should be pretty interesting to see how Gregg Williams uses Franklin, Sedrick Ellis, and Shaun Rogers together.

I guess this better explains the Charlie Johnson signing for Minnesota. Former Pro Bowler Bryant McKinnie was granted his release after nine seasons in purple as his weight problems and off-the-field issues finally became too much to deal with for the Vikings.
