The Bucs announced his decision Monday, with general manager Jason Licht calling the 33-year-old "one of the toughest, most intelligent and skilled players at his position" that he's ever seen.
Analysis: The seven-time Pro Bowl guard played the past two seasons with the Bucs after spending the first nine years of his career with the New England Patriots. Mankins was obtained in a trade from New England during the 2014 preseason and started 31 games over the past two years. The Bucs rebounded from a 2-14 record in his first season with Tampa Bay to finish 6-10 in 2015, with Mankins helping an overhauled offensive line open holes for Doug Martin to rush for 1,402 yards.
