By all reports the NFL lockout is close to coming to an end. Ron Borges of the Boston Herald wrote an article about the Brady v. NFL case and how this case could affect the end of the lockout. He told Toucher & Rich that everyone still needs to sign off on this case.
One of the players involved in the lawsuit is Logan Mankins and he might be the one to hold this lawsuit up from being settled. Makins would be entering his seventh season this year and still has not reached free agency in his career. What could they offer him to get him to sign off, maybe a $2.5 million payout?
“Logan Mankins would sign off in a minute on becoming a free agent, but that’s probably not going to happen. So what’s the next thing you can do? Well he can find some financial settlement. The fly in the ointment there is he’s never been the guy apparently who settles for the money. So I think he wants to be free,” Borges said.
Borges said if they owners were smart they should just give the players involved in the lawsuit what they want as long as it’s reasonable just to get this over with.
