Nate Solder leaves Patriots to join Giants on 4-year deal

Houston Texans: Team is going after two Patriots' free agents Browns reportedly chasing Patriots OT Nate Solder; could hint at Joe Thomas retirement
Frederick Owens | 15 March, 2018, 05:40

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. Baltimore signed Maclin as a free agent in June, hopeful the accomplished pass catcher would be a primary target for quarterback Joe Flacco.

It's also worth mentioning Brady still hasn't restructured his contract this offseason, so he's on the books for a $22 million cap hit, the highest it's ever been in his career.

The Patriots lost free agents Dion Lewis and Malcolm Butler to the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

Thomas, in the final year of his contract, will make $10.3 million in base salary if he plays in 2018. 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. Would the Philadelphia Eagles listen to trade offers for Jason Peters?

The Cleveland Browns and Patriots were "passively involved" in pursuit of Solder, ESPN reported. Bradham was a key member on defense for the Super Bowl champions. To me, that meant re-signing Solder.

The move comes a day after Gettleman was outbid by the Jaguars for former Panthers guard Andrew Norwell, who signed as an unrestricted free agent when Gettleman was Carolina's GM. Both players are on the older side, but if the Patriots also plan to draft a left tackle, then it would be preferable to have a one- or two-year fill-in. In other words, the Pats are now without their starting left tackle, leading rusher/kickoff returner, starting cornerback and slot receiver/punt returner. For a guy that's never been All-Pro, nor has he been a Pro Bowler?

Just how badly did Tom Brady cut his precious right, passing hand during practice the week before the AFC championship game? The 38-year-old Peppers, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, will be entering his 17th National Football League season, including his 10th with the Panthers.
