New York Giants to sign LT Nate Solder to four-year deal

After losing out on Andrew Norwell on Tuesday, New York's first-year general manager made a push to sign the top offensive tackle on the market. PFF's Neil Hornsby points out that from Week 9 on, Solder was the league's third best offensive tackle and second ranked left tackle.

Butler started the Patriots' first two playoff games before he was mysteriously benched for the Super Bowl. He's played in 4 Super Bowls (46, 49, 51, and 52) winning 2 of them (49 and 51). Martin comes from Arizona and started a year ago for new Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher.

Who Can Replace Solder To Protect Brady's Blind Side? In addition to the Giants, Solder is also being pursued by the Browns, Broncos, Texans and of course, the team he's spent his entire career with, the New England Patriots. But that wasn't the only loss for the Patriots in free agency.

Ebner was placed on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending knee injury against the Dolphins previous year. "It just does not sound to me like the Patriots really think they are going to be able to keep him".

Croston played left and right tackle at Iowa but only was on the field for eight offensive snaps during the 2017 season after coming to the team as an undrafted free agent.

Solder is a solid left tackle, probably not at the elite level. They took Antonio Garcia in the 3rd round last years. The 6'8, 320-pound lineman immediately provides an upgrade to an offense that's based around Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr.

Top free agents available are players like Austin Howard, Greg Robinson, Justin Pugh, Chris Clark and Andre Smith.

His two interceptions were the same number as fellow cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who was signed by the Patriots to a five-year, $65 million deal last spring.

The offensive line was an obvious area of need for the Giants, and Solder's presence should mean an immediate improvement to their pass protection in 2018.
