As reported yesterday, Logan Mankins has decided to hang up his cleats and retire after 11 stellar seasons in the NFL, two of them with the Buccaneers. He leaves a hole on the line, and within the veteran leadership on the roster, as his young teammate Ali Marpet mentioned yesterday on the team website. He will be missed.

We start with Schwartz.
