Patriots trade G Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Wright, 24, is in his second NFL season after originally signing with Tampa Bay as a rookie free agent out of Rutgers April 29, 2013. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder, played wide receiver in college but was moved to tight end by the Buccaneers. Last season, he played in 16 games with eight starts and finished with 54 receptions for 571 yards and five touchdowns.
Mankins, 32, originally joined the Patriots as a first-round draft pick (32nd overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft out of Fresno State. The 6-foot-4, 308-pounder was a three-time captain and six-time Pro Bowl player for the Patriots. Mankins started all 130 regular-season games and all 17 postseason games in which he has appeared in since joining the Patriots.
