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

The Patriots have about $22 million in salary-cap space and their biggest free agent, both in size and importance, remains in play: Starting left tackle Nate Solder.

Rapoport reported the Giants are giving Solder a four-year contract worth $62 million with $35 million guaranteed - $15.5 million per season. That makes him the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL.

Solder has played the past seven seasons with the New England Patriots and has played in four Super bowls protecting Tom Brady's blindside. He's played in 4 Super Bowls (46, 49, 51, and 52) winning 2 of them (49 and 51). With the legal tampering underway, I'd certainly expect Solder be connected to a numerous amount of teams, including the Texans. The two-year-deal displays the team's lasting confidence in Ebner, whose age and injury history would typically be concerning for other teams.

There are really no intriguing options at left tackle in free agency.

In addition to his on-field prowess, Solder was also an exemplary role model off the field. Signing players because they're good on a specific team doesn't mean they will work well in any given system.

Snow warning amid threat from 'Beast from the East Two'
Parts of England and Scotland may face more snow towards the end of the week, with cold winds from the east set to strike again. The cold snap may well last into next week and there is likely to be at least some snow in parts of the UK.

The New England Patriots have not had a particularly great start to free agency. The Giants still have work to do on the line, which was frightful last season. So although the talent hasn't been there for the team the last few years, the cupboards are not bare because of what we have coming down the pike in the next few years.

Jelks started at left tackle as a sophomore at Vanderbilt then missed two consecutive seasons with torn ACLs. The move inside was one they should've made earlier on, but now they can, because they have a left tackle. The Giants struggled mightily to protect quarterback Eli Manning in 2017.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was in the NY personnel department in 2011 when the Patriots selected Solder before the Giants had a chance to do the same.
