In today's News Blitz... Mankins back, Where will Moss land? We lucked out with Woodhead and Taylor's return? It's all in today's News Blitz...

Patriots guard Logan Mankins reported to Gillette Stadium yesterday, after a long holdout when he missed the June-14 deadline to sign his tender. New England will receive a two-game roster exemption for Mankins, meaning the team won't have to release a player from its 53-man roster for two games after Mankins signs his one-year tender, according to **. The Pats two-time Pro-Bowl playmaker will earn 9/17 of his $1.54 million contract agreement (which was 110 percent of his 2009 salary), or about $815,000, according to the *Boston Globe*.

As many as 10 teams have expressed interest in acquiring the newly available wide receiver Randy Moss, who was officially released from the Vikings yesterday, reports the *Boston Herald*.
