Wright is listed at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, which makes him more of a big receiver than a traditional tight end.

Tommy Kelly, Isaac Sopoaga & Patriots' cap

Former New England Patriots defensive tackle Tommy Kelly has signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals, it was announced on Wednesday. This has two trickle-down effects on the Patriots: 1. Kelly no longer a post-Week 1 option. When the Patriots released Kelly on Sunday, one line of thinking was that he could return after the first week of the season when his contract wouldn't be guaranteed, similar to what happened with veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren in the past.

Patriots preview: Make-or-break stretch

Tom Brady recently said that a team truly doesn't know what it has until December, and it's almost as if he was looking at the schedule when he said that. A Nov. 2 home game against the Broncos, followed by the bye and then a Sunday night road game against the Colts looks like the iron of the schedule. After a home date with Detroit, then it's a challenging back-to-back road set against the Packers (Nov. 30) and Chargers (Dec. 7) in which Belichick is considering keeping the team out West for the week leading into the Sunday night game at San Diego.

A few follow-ups on Logan Mankins

  A few follow-ups on the trade that sent Logan Mankins from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mankins' Tampa Bay introduction likely Thursday: With Mankins scheduled to arrive in Tampa later Wednesday night, his official Buccaneers introduction isn't expected to take place until Thursday. Tampa Bay hosts Washington in its preseason finale Thursday night, so Mankins' introduction figures to trump any action on the field.

Mankins trade from Buccaneers' view

Some links from the Buccaneers perspective on the trade of guard Logan Mankins: The "right move" for Tampa. Pat Yasinskas, who covers the Buccaneers for ESPN.com's NFL Nation, opines that this is the right move for the club. "That’s a steep price, and Mankins also will take up $6 million of Tampa Bay’s salary cap for this season. But you get what you pay for. What the Bucs got is a quality player to patch their problems at guard. Mankins, 32, is a six-time Pro Bowler and known as a great locker room guy," he writes.

More money for Darrelle Revis

FOXBORO — Bill Belichick has lost his mind. At least that was the initial reaction upon hearing the Patriots traded Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for tight end Tim Wright and a draft pick yesterday.If the mantra is win now, this move doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it? Why would you deal a six-time All-Pro guard, a blood-and-guts warrior who once played an entire season on a torn ACL?
