Logan Mankins Traded To Buccaneers

Breaking news in the NFL, specifically New England today as the Pats have dealt their best offensive lineman for a young TE and a draft pick. 

Patriots send G Logan Mankins to Buccaneers for TE Tim Wright and a 4th round draft pick

The Pats will save money (shocker) by dealing Mankins, but at what cost?  He's not the best guard in the league anymore but he's the best they had. 

I think Gronk is ok (health wise, for now) and the move is more an attempt to recreate the two TE offense of Gronk-Hernandez that was so lethal. 

Wright was an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers last year who had 54 catches, 571 receiving yards and 5 TDs. 

He was a WR in college and could be that "move TE" in New England. 

Intrigued for sure but I'd rather have Mankins right now.

Annabelle Trailer


If you saw The Conjuring you remember this horrifying doll. She's getting her own movie, I'm scared.

Here is the premise according to Wikipedia...
John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia - a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn't last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now...Annabelle
