Nate Solder To Sign Four-Year, $60 Million Contract With Giants

New Giants LB previews ‘relentless’ defense he’s helping bring over

The New York Giants are expected to sign offensive tackle Nate Solder, a source told ESPN, confirming a report by NFL Network.

Casserly also made a suggestion in his appearance on NFL Network that the Giants should now move Flowers to right guard, which he also tweeted about earlier in the day following news of Solder going to NY.

The 29-year-old Solder was considered the top offensive lineman available in free agency. With the legal tampering underway, I'd certainly expect Solder be connected to a numerous amount of teams, including the Texans.

It's a good thing that Super Bowls aren't won in March because if that were the case, the Patriots would be in trouble.

Pro Football Focus gave him a 75.7 grade in 2017, placing him 32nd among NFL tackles. He will be the NFL's highest-paid lineman.

Monday Morning Quarterback's Albert Beer tweeted out Tuesday afternoon that the Giants are going after Solder.

And while NY definitely has other needs, the draft is right around the corner. He also played on the left side against the Broncos and made one start there in 2016. Who's to say the same couldn't be said for Flowers.

It cost a boatload, but Solder immediately upgrades a porous Giants offensive line. That leaves New York's front office the option to take an offensive tackle or guard in the early rounds. He is durable, starting 46 of a possible 48 games in his three seasons.

This off-season, Solder looked like the No. 1 priority for the Patriots.

It was a role that Flowers was not ready for and has struggled mightily in.

Jelks started at left tackle as a sophomore at Vanderbilt then missed two consecutive seasons with torn ACLs.

That's why Gettelman's decision to break the bank for Solder is a great move. That's more likely. The final move would be to change positions, and that's the most likely of them all. Solder was the top pure left tackle on the open market, and arguably the only one worth big money.
