Mike Remmers will visit the Giants

A Pat Shurmur reunion could be in the offing for Mike Remmers.

Cut recently by the Vikings, Remmers will take an initial visit with the Giants, according to agent Brett Tessler. Tessler adds that six teams in all have expressed interest in Remmers.

Remmers signed with the Vikings in 2017, after three seasons with the Panthers in the year that Pat Shurmur served as the wire-to-wire offensive coordinator. Remmers started 11 games that year, and all 16 games in 2018, after Shurmur left to become coach of the Giants.

Remmers arrived in Minnesota as a right tackle and eventually shifted to guard. The Vikings decided to scrap the final three years of Remmers’ contract, as part of the seemingly endless effort to develop the kind of offensive line that the team needs to become something other than an every-other-year playoff team.

  1. Why would you be interested in this guy? Remmers and Compton were consistently destroyed last season and were among the league leaders among OL in QB pressures allowed.

  2. The guy has shown he can play. The problem in Minny was coaching.
    Like they always say, you got two coaches, you got none.
    Or something like that…

  3. When a lineman that was signed to fix a crappy offensive line gets dropped with 3 years left on his contract, it’s pretty telling. Best of luck, good riddance, and thanks for the space to resign Barr.

  4. I don’t get it, why would you want this guy on your team for anything other than a back up and that’s ONLY if you got him at fair value, I’m thinking something like 2 million a Season? If you watched any of the Vikings game this past Season, Remmers was a swinging door. He did not just get beat like after slowing a guy down but he would literally get put on his backside or another words, just flat out run over. I mean it was bad along with very hard to watch. Not completely sold on Cousins either but he had very little time and the Defensive Players would literally beat Cousins to his drop back point in the pocket regardless of 3,5 or 7 step drop, they would be waiting on him to get there so I find it really tough to put a grade on his 2018 Season since he did do Some good things as well . To Remmers I say, good riddance, it was just awful!

  5. when he played tackle, what he was signed for he played well. when moved to guard for the last game & 2 playoff games and all last year he was awful. vikings blew it by just not having him stay at tackle and sign someone else at guard. that was part of the reason for the brutal beatdown phi put on the vikings. what a foolish time to experiment on the o-line.

  6. Might as well stick a construction cone with a broom sticking out of it out there over this guy.

    Giants badly need a right tackle but are set at guard with Hernandez and Zeitler. Hopefully he comes cheap.
