Pro Bowl Center Mangold Says He Won’t Hold Out

Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold wants a new contract from the New York Jets. If that doesn’t happen, though, he won’t hold out from training camp in protest. “It doesn’t seem to me to do any good to do it, so I’ll be there with bells on,” Mangold said Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access.” Mangold is entering the final year of a five-year, $7.47 million contract that he signed as a rookie in 2006.

He hasn’t missed a game since being the Jets’ first-round draft pick that year, and he has been chosen to the past two Pro Bowls. “It’s disappointing right now where we’re at, but it’s one of those things you go through,” Mangold said. “I’m professional, I’ve done everything the right way, and I’m going to continue to do that — be there for my teammates and the coaches. And we’ll see how it all plays out.” Jets veterans are scheduled to report to training camp Aug. 1 in Cortland, N.Y.
