Giants To Pay Big Bucks To Stalwart Left Tackle Nate Solder

  • Patriots offensive lineman Nate Solder

Although some of this week's news wasn't a surprise, losing Solder, who signed a four-year, $62 million deal with the New York Giants was a big loss.

The 28-year-old, who played his college football at Florida State University, was originally selected by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round (105th pick overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.

This offseason, Solder looked like the No. 1 priority for the Patriots. It's a 4-year, $60 million deal, per Schefter. With Solder now in the fold, the Giants offensive line could be upgraded at multiple spots.

Winning title against Man United not a motivation for Pep's City
They had just one chance, so three points more. "I'm very specific in saying [the title's] not going to be handed to us". Gabriel Jesus has played 31 Premier League games without ever being on the losing side (W26 D5).

The New England Patriots and the Houston Texans were the other two teams interested in Solder, according to Albert Breer of the MMQB. While Solder's deal with the Giants was understandably one the Patriots (most likely) could not match, they will be left to pick up the pieces from yet another impact departure.

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. He is arguably the top free-agent offensive tackle on the market.

Malcolm Butler makes a game-winning interception during Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, Ariz. Plus, he's battle-tested under pressure situations since he's been protecting Tom Brady the last seven years. Currently, on the roster, the Patriots have right tackle Marcus Cannon and developmental prospects Cole Croston, Andre Jelks and Jason King. 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.

Warren: 'I'm Not Running for President in 2020′
Elizabeth Warren on Sunday about President Trump calling her "Pocahontas", and her response didn't exactly answer the question. Todd pointed out that many presidential candidates in the past said they were not running two years before an election.

I can't blame NY for going out and doing this, which is why I made a decision to give them an average grade.

The Giants paid a high price to land Solder, who was a Pro Bowl alternate for 2017 but didn't play because the Patriots were in the Super Bowl.

Giants free agent Justin Pugh is an option, but he's played left guard and right tackle. Both played well as backup swing tackles in 2017, but it's unlikely the Patriots want to count on either player as a full-time starting left tackle in 2018. They took Antonio Garcia in the 3rd round last years.

Sometimes it is important also to share the responsibility with the players that you have to prepare for this type of game. The first leg ended 1-1 as Messi broke his duck against Chelsea in his 10th appearance against the London club.
