TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ The Tampa Bay Buccaneers addressed a need to upgrade their struggling offensive line by obtaining six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins from the New England Patriots for tight end Tim Wright and a draft pick.

The deal Tuesday comes less than 24 hours after the Bucs met with Richie Incognito to try to determine if one of the central figures in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal might be an answer to their problems at guard.

General manager Jason Licht said he felt fortunate to obtain the 32-year-old Mankins, but did not rule out the possibility of signing Incognito, too.

Asked where things stood with Incognito, coming off a suspension for his role in last season’s bullying scandal, Licht replied the free agent guard remains an “option.”
