Giants lure OT Solder with four-year, $62M deal

  • Browns reportedly chasing Patriots OT Nate Solder; could hint at Joe Thomas retirement

Gettleman has earned the signings of former Arizona Cardinal's LB Kareem Martin, and left tackle for the Patriots Nate Solder.

In reality, National Football League free agency doesn't officially open until Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, but since the somewhat-silly "legal tampering" period opened on Monday, there have been numerous contracts agreed to, and many players and fans celebrating.

Solder had been with the Patriots for his entire seven-year career and established great relationships not only with the team, but in the community. Solder's four-year, $62 million contract is an historic figure, as his $15.5 million in average annual value is $2 million more than any lineman in the NFL.

According to several insiders, Nate Solder took less to stay in New England the last time he hit the free agency market. Brett Jones, a restricted free agent who received a second-round qualifying offer, started the final 12 games at center.

The loss of Solder does create a hole at LT for the Patriots. Now the 29-year-old is cashing in. Like Butler, there was also some discontent from Lewis toward the Patriots after he started the season fourth on the running back depth chart and then played only 21 snaps in the Super Bowl. In terms of internal options, the Pats also have last year's third-round pick Tony Garcia, Cole Croston, Andrew Jelks and Jason King on the roster.

Solder is coming to NY! The person says Hayden will sign a three-year deal.

The Giants announced late Wednesday afternoon the signing of former Carolina Panthers cornerback Teddy Williams, who did not play in 2017 after being waived/injured with a shoulder problem. Depending on what the Giants do with the remainder of free agency and later in the draft, Flowers could find himself at right tackle or competing at one of the starting guard spots, even though he has never played guard.

The deal with Solder coincided with agreement between Big Blue and linebacker Kareem Martin, who played last season with the Arizona Cardinals.
