"I haven't really spoken to anybody about it, so I have my own personal feelings that are very personal to me," Brady told WEEI-FM on Tuesday, per ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.
"I love Logan. Logan was a great friend of mine. Nobody stood for Patriots football more than him. ... I dealt with whatever feelings I had last week, but I've moved on. I have to move on, because that's what this team expects me to do."
Brady isn't doing cartwheels over seeing a premier blocker sent south, but the Patriots -- with Bill Belichick at the trigger -- owe much of their long run of success to unemotional team-building. Instead of holding on to an aging Mankins and his $10 million salary-cap number one year too long, New England moved him for value while it still could.
Brady, though, acknowledged that the business-end of the NFL isn't something he's warmed up to during his 15-year career.
"Absolutely not," he responded. "I'm a very person-to-person type of person, a very emotional person. I don't think those things have ever gotten easier for me. I don't think they ever will. But you have to come to grips with it also, and learn to deal with things in a mature way."
