Former Patriots guard Logan Mankins has announced his retirement, according to Ian Rapoport NFL.com. Mankins was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the start of the 2014-2015 season for tight end Tim Wright.

Mankins will likely be a Patriots Hall of Famer some day, and he might have a place in Canton as well. His effort and toughness was never questioned.

Mankins was drafted in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He unfortunately didn't win a Super Bowl with the Patriots, but played in both Super Bowl losses to the Giants. Even in his later years, Mankins was a dependable guard that never took a play off and has been missed ever since he was traded. He made the Pro Bowl in seven of his 11 seasons.
