Jay Glazer: The Patriots have agreed on the parameters of a trade to send 5-time All Pro guard Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers for TE Tim Wright and an undisclosed draft pick.

 

Giants guard Geoff Schwartz is considered week to week with a dislocated right big toe.  Schwartz won’t need season ending surgery at this time.

 

The Bills released QB Thad Lewis and signed QB Jordan Palmer.

 

USC Head Coach Steve Sarkisian said they received contradicting stories about what happened to CB Josh Shaw.  Shaw claimed he sprained both ankles jumping from a balcony to save his nephew, who was drowning in a pool, and now USC is investigating the matter.

 

Major League Baseball denied the Rays’ protest of their game against Toronto last weekend when an improper replay was allowed.

 

Ohio State QB Braxton Miller had successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.  Miller won’t play for the Buckeyes this season.
