Giants to give Nate Solder a 4-year, $60M contract

Kareem Martin, who played in 3-4 base last season, says Giants defense will be 'relentless'
The New York Giants have found their franchise left tackle as they have reportedly agreed to a contract with former New England Patriot Nate Solder. He has started 31 of a possible 32 regular season games the past two years and played excellently in this past year's Super Bowl loss to the Eagles.
Another factor in the pursuit of Solder: his 2-year-old son Hudson is battling kidney cancer and undergoing treatment at Boston Children's Hospital.
Had the Patriots retained Solder, he would've counted for a significant chunk of their roughly $22.4 million in salary cap space this offseason. It's a 4-year, $60 million deal, per Schefter.
The offensive line was an obvious area of need for the Giants, and Solder's presence should mean an immediate improvement to their pass protection in 2018.
He quickly disposed of right tackle Bobby Hart, signed Halapio, assigned a second-round tender to keep center Brett Jones, a restricted free agent, and hustled to get Solder's deal done after missing out on Norwell. The person says Hayden will sign a three-year deal. The 2011 first-round pick out of Colorado will be the NFL's highest-paid lineman. He must have surveyed the market and realized that this was destined to be a particularly thin class of free agent tackles.

Before last season, he hadn't started more than two games.
