It appeared Nate Solder was headed toward his release from the Giants. But Dan Duggan of TheAthletic.com reports that the Giants now have optimism they can keep the offensive tackle with a reworked deal.

The sides are talking.

Solder, who turns 33 next month, opted out of 2020 in part because his son was battling cancer. Solder said recently he wants to return in 2021.

The Giants, though, are not going to keep him for a $16.5 million cap charge that includes $10 million in base salary.

The team drafted left tackle Andrew Thomas in the first round last year, and he started 15 games as a rookie.

Solder has started 127 games in nine seasons.

  1. Now we are talking. This move can only help and potentially allow them to deploy a pick or pickup elsewhere. No one said Solder can’t play. I like the Giants as a run-first team since that’s what they’ve always been. Jones is a plus in a run-based attack since he’s a threat to run himself. Sure they need a top-end WR and/or TE but maybe now they can look to the defense with their first and/or second picks. That is if they can sign Solder to be a starting RT.
