Report: Mankins' agent calls tag 'travesty'
By: DJ Bean

Frank Bauer, the agent for Patriots guard Logan Mankins, told The Boston Globe Thursday that he is unhappy with the current state of affairs between his client and the team. The Pats recently franchised Mankins, who has been a three-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro. 

 

"One of the best players on your football team, that the coaching staff respects — it’s a travesty what they’ve done with this player,” Bauer said. "[A new deal] should have been done a long time ago. It could have been done a long time ago. But it got stopped. And right now we’re not talking. And they tagged him.”

 

The Pats chose Mankins with the 32nd overall pick of the 2005 draft. He sat out the first eight games of last season before signing his tender as a restricted free...

Report: Celtics ink D-League center Johnson

In order to fill one of the two roster spots voided by the three trade deadline deals made on Thursday, the Celtics signed Chris Johnson of the NBA Development League's Dakota Wizards to a 10-day contract and expect him to play against the Nuggets, according to FanHouse.

 

The Celtics reportedly dealt Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Thunder for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic, sent Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to the Cavaliers for a 2013 second-round pick and capped a wild afternoon by shipping Marquis Daniels and cash to the Kings for a protected second-round pick in the 2017 draft.

 

Those deals left the Celtics with just eight available players entering Thursday night's game against the Nuggets — hence the Johnson signing. The 6-foot-11, 210-pound center has averaged 16.9 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 1.3 assists in 32.7 minutes per game this season for the D-League team based in North...

Daniels won't veto trade to Kings

The agent for Marquis Daniels said that his client would not not exercise his right to veto the trade that sent him to Sacramento and added that he doesn't expect the Kings to buy him out of his contract. "What we've got to do is get him healthy," Mark Bartelstein said. The move opened a roster spot for the Celtics to try to acquire another player. As a player with "Early Bird" contract rights, Daniels could have vetoed the deal, but with his health the primary concern, he elected not to go that route.

Ryan: Jets behind Pats 'without question'
By: DJ Bean

INDIANAPOLIS — Jets coach Rex Ryan gave the latest of his colorful press conferences Thursday, opening his session with the media at the NFL scouting combine by spending the first five minutes talking about the television show "CSI" and guaranteeing the Jets will win the Super Bowl next season. 

 

Ryan's Jets knocked off the Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs this past season after the Pats finished the regular season with a league-best 14-2 record. Despite the Jets going to the AFC championship in consecutive seasons, Ryan said they have not surpassed the Patriots as the team to beat in the AFC East. 

 

"I would say without question that we're behind them still," Ryan said.

Report: C's trade Erden, Harangody to Cavs

The Celtics aren't done dealing. A report from Adrian Wojnarowski has them dealing Semih Erden and Luke Harangody for a second-round pick. The real value is in the roster spots that open with Erden and Harangody off the books. The Celtics were at the maximum number of players allowed on an NBA roster with 15 and this clears the way for them to puruse veteran free agents such as Troy Murphy and Rip Hamilton, once they are bought out by their teams.
