Belichick to present Mankins on NFLN

Offensive lineman Logan Mankins will be featured on NFL Network's "Top 100" players show Sunday night (8 p.m. ET), as players ranked 31-40 are featured. Mankins will be presented by Bill Belichick.

"Nothing bothers him," Belichick says in a preview clip of the show. "Mentally, he can fight through any situation. Physically, he's as tough as they come."

Belichick has regularly lauded Mankins as a player, both before Mankins' contract standoff in 2010 and after. So, on the surface, this doesn't represent any type of shift when it comes to the business side of Mankins' situation.

Mankins isn't the only Patriot to be featured Sunday night, as defensive lineman Vince Wilfork is also ranked between 31-40. Wilfork will be presented by fellow University of Miami alum Jonathan Vilma, the middle linebacker for the Saints.
