The New England Patriots officially placed their franchise tag on Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins on Monday, according to a league source.

Mankins is the first player to be designated a team's franchise player this offseason. The franchise tag binds Mankins to the Patriots for one year.

The projected contract for a franchised offensive lineman is $10.1 million, down from $10.7 million last season.

Mankins, 28, was a first-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2005. He has been to three Pro Bowls, including this year.
