Tagged The New England Patriots have reportedly placed the franchise tag on All-Pro offensive lineman Logan Mankins, who held out the first seven games of the 2010 season in a contract fight. Mankins is the first NFL player hit with the franchise tag for the 2011 season. Mankins would earn about $10 million under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement that expires on March 4. It is not clear whether the franchise tag will be part of the new deal. The NFL players union has called the franchise tag “worthless.” Postponed Major league home run leader Jose Bautista and the Toronto Blue Jays have pushed back their salary arbitration in hopes of reaching an agreement. The sides had been set to argue their cases Monday, with Bautista asking for $10.5 million rather than the team’s offer of $7.6 million. Bautista hit .260 with 54 homers and 124 RBIs last season, when he made $2.4 million.
