Report: Mankins deal stalls over apology

According to a report on ESPN, the Patriots and All-Pro guard Logan Mankins were close to agreeing to a long-term deal two weeks ago but the talks stalled when Mankins refused to issue a public apology for comments he made in June.

 

Mankins did privately apologize to owner Robert Kraft for his comments, in which Mankins brought the integrity of the Patriots owner into question. It was 90 minutes after the two spoke, according to the report, when the Patriots asked Mankins to issue the public apology. He not only refused but was reportedly offended by the request, and the contract talks fell apart.

 

Mankins was close to signing a deal close to the seven-year, $56.7 million contract inked by New Orleans Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans in the offseason.

Report: Brady car in accident was loaner

According to the Boston Globe, the car in which Tom Brady was involved in an accident in early Thursday morning was on loan from the nonprofit group, 'Best Buddies International, Inc.,' and is one of a few cars Audi supplies to the organization. The car Brady was driving (which had New Jersey plates) was an Audi S8 sedan, which typically costs approximately $97,000. Speaking to ESPN.com, Patriots owner Bob Kraft said, "He was saying how the thump he took was not unlike getting hit on the field here. He arched and prepared himself and we're just lucky with the glass and angles. We have a lot to be thankful for. It was really a miracle." WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Show was first to report news of Brady's accident. For more Patriots coverage see the team page at weei.com/patriots.

Lowell confirms he will retire at season's end

After insinuating that this would be his last season, Mike Lowell told the Boston Herald that he will be ending his 13-year big league career at the conclusion of the 2010 season. "I'm retiring," he told The Herald. "I just don't want to make it a song and dance because I don't think that's necessary, but if someone needs something official, yeah, I'm going to retire. This is going to be my last year."

 

Lowell had first hinted at retirement in the Red Sox' initial road series of the season, in Kansas City, and then again at various times over the last two months. He had referenced how he was looking forward to spending more time with his two young children, and that the time he spent at home just prior to, and during, the All-Star break helped give the 36-year-old an idea of what he...

Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
