New York Giants Expected to Sign Nate Solder

New York Giants Expected to Sign Nate Solder

The New York Giants made a big splash in free agency Wednesday by agreeing to terms with left tackle Nate Solder of the New England Patriots, multiple media outlets reported. Solder has spent the entirety of his seven-year career up to this point with the New England Patriots.

We will continue to provide updates as they become available.

Solder will receive a four-year, $60 million contract with a guarantee of about $35 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

National Football League free agency technically begins at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

Most fans are excited about the move, as the Giants land a legitimate left tackle and can now move Ereck Flowers off the position. NY couldn't go another offseason without finding a replacement for Flowers-be it through free agency or the draft. Butler did not play in Super Bowl 52, a 41-33 Philadelphia Eagles win over the Patriots. Though Bill Belichick didn't select Light, Solder or Sebastian Vollmer with the intention of starting them from day one, each had strong rookie seasons upon their promotions due to injuries. Both joined the Titans for big money with Butler at five years, $61 million, and $30 million guaranteed, and Lewis at four years, $23.4 million, and $11.5 million guaranteed. Last year, the 29-year-old started all 16 games and was named as a Pro Bowl alternate. Lewis is a good example of that, as the team originally signed him on February 6, 2015, in a move that was an afterthought to many at the time.

Solder provides an immediate upgrade from Flowers, but general manager Dave Gettleman has a lot more work to do along the line.

I can't blame NY for going out and doing this, which is why I chose to give them an average grade. Solder also filled in at tight end during his time with the Patriots. He was a 2011 first-round pick out of Colorado, the 17th player selected, and the Giants were hot on his trail at the time.
