Remember Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson? Yeah, you probably do -- they held out for a long time in 2010 and then were involved in this little Brady v. NFL lawsuit that nearly caused us to lose football in 2011.

Here's some good news then: Mankins and Jackson will both, reportedly, show up and sign their respective tenders and join their respective camps on time.

Per Scott Bair of the North County Times, Jackson will sign his franchise tag on Friday. Adam Schefter of ESPN initially reported that Mankins would report and put his ink the Patriots tender.

Mankins will make $10.73 million this year, while Jackson will receive $11.93 million.

Both players are eligible for a long-term extension from their respective teams, though such a deal would need to be in place by 4:00 p.m. ET on September 20, according to the new league rules.

In other words, we'll find out quickly just how much of a relationship is remaining between the two named plaintiffs and their respective front offices.

Well said, Still4GB.... When I read that line, I thought, This guy has to be kidding us if he believes that the Brady vs. NFL lawsuit nearly caused us to miss football in 2011. Thanks for calling him out on it.

It's pathetic that a so-called journalist would write such nonsense.

Logan Mankins has been the best guard in the league over the past three years and is never in trouble off the field, so your dead wrong on that one. I don't disagree with your Jackson observation though, he is a Giant Tool. Mankins got upset that he's the best guard in the league and he wasn't paid like he was the best, understandable there, but he's a guard and he has to understand that he's not going to be paid like a QB is. I think he's starting to understand that now, especially with a salary cap now in place.

After all that has been said on both sides about Vincent Jackson for the past 3 years, don’t you think at some point that a reasonable person would look at his gifts and abilities and realize that all that he has could go away for incredibly stupid reasons.  AJ should give him big money, but none of it guaranteed.  Pay his first season up front, then great money for 5 years, but make him accountable.  It’s time to grow the eff up Vincent…. You’re going to be 29 at your next birthday party, one year away from 30.  It’s time to wear the big boy pants and stop acting like a spoiled high school kid who think he can do whatever he wants.  Do you want some rookie, or second year QB to spend 2 years learning who you are?  Maybe you could go to SF and have Alex Smith throw to you.  John Beck? Vince Young? Jimmy Clausen? David Garrard? Charlie Whitehurst might like to throw to you because he knows you from his San Diego days!  Philip River loves to throw to you.  You will never have the same relationship with a quarterback in your life.  It’s time to figure it out and make a deal with AJ to be accountable to your fans, your team, and to yourself. Are you a reasonable person?
