70 Logan Mankins Veteran Pro Bowl guard who was acquired in an August 2014 trade with New England for TE Tim Wright and a 4th round pick. Started all 16 games at left guard during his first season in Tampa but was not the dominating presence some expected when he was obtained and could well be on the downside of his career. Started all 132 games he played in New England as well as 17 post-season contests and was a six-time Pro Bowl selection as well as five-time All Pro.
