You just cannot make this up, NFL fans.

Last week, Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com alerted NFL fans that New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins was attempting to hold up a new collective bargaining agreement unless he, a named Plaintiff in the lawsuit against the NFL, be granted free agency as part of the settlement between the NFL and NFLPA.

Then, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported that San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Jackson was doing the same thing and that both Mankins and Jenkins requested either free agency or $10 million each in exchange for their signature on the settlement with the NFL.

Now, Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe is reporting that Indianapolis Colts QB Peyton Manning and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (other named Plaintiffs)want to be exempt from the franchise tag.
