Giants to sign Nate Solder to four-year, $62 million deal

New England Patriots tackle Nate Solder before an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday Sept. 10 2015 in Foxborough Mass

It seemed that the New York Giants were not going to make any pickups right away, but they were able to land former Patriots Left Tackle, Nate Solder. Throughout his career in Foxboro, he has played in 98 career regular-season games, with 95 starts. The 33-year-old and 10-time Pro Bowler has been mulling retirement since his 2017 season ended prematurely because of a torn left triceps. But, a four-year, $62 million contract with $35 million guaranteed (will believe that when I see it)?

The Patriots have a big hole to fill on their offensive line.

The hits just kept coming, as left tackle Nate Solder is now leaving for another organization as well.

Lewis joins a backfield already featuring Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy victor from Alabama, who had bided his time behind Murray his first two seasons.

The Denver Broncos had interest in Solder but the tackle's price tag was likely too costly for general manager John Elway.

The Cleveland Browns and Patriots were also "passively involved" in pursuit of Solder, whose contract is potentially worth $62m making him the highest-paid offensive tackle in the NFL. After Butler didn't play on defense in the Super Bowl, he was all but out the door as soon as the offseason starter. He played a major role in helping Tom Brady guide the Patriots to four Super Bowls, including two wins. Another option, last year's third-round pick Tony Garcia, lost 40 pounds last year after it was discovered, and reported by the Boston Herald, that he had blood clots in his lungs. Both also played right tackle past year. Fleming started at left tackle against Houston when Solder started at tight end. But Maclin missed two games with a shoulder injury, two more with knee issues, and finished with only 40 catches for 440 yards and three touchdowns. For some National Football League free agents, who called Foxboro home in 2017, there was most likely a bit more to it than that.
