New England Patriots OG Logan Mankins (knee) participated in practice in pads for the first time Tuesday, Aug. 14. However, FB Eric Kettani, CB Alfonzo Dennard, FB Spencer Larsen, OG Brian Waters, LB Tracy White, OT Markus Zusevics, OT Matt Kopa, OT Kyle Hix, OT Sebastian Vollmer, TE Aaron Hernandez, TE Visanthe Shiancoe, WR Brandon Lloyd, TE Daniel Fells, TE Rob Gronkowski, TE Jake Ballard and DLs Myron Pryor, Gerard Warren and Jonathan Fanene sat out. CB Malcolm Williams and S James Ihedigbo returned.

Footballguys view: The Patriots offensive line is the only concern in a year setting up to be their best on offense since 2007. Mankins return to practice is reassuring for anyone planning on taking Tom Brady in the first round.

  Patriots | Michael Bush, Jonathan Fanene could be free agent options    Sun Mar 4, 12:21 PM

The New England Patriots could show interest in Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Michael Bush and Cincinnati Bengals DL Jonathan Fanene if they are available this offseason.

Footballguys view: Fanene makes sense because the Patriots need to improve their defensive front. However, their interest in Bush is a little puzzling. They drafted two RBs last year (Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen) and are going to let BenJarvus Green-Ellis walk in free agency. Bush's price tag is going to be very high as he's looking to be a featured RB at the NFL level.
