Nate Solder's Reported Departure From Patriots A Cause For Major Concern


Giants signed LT Nate Solder, formerly of the Patriots, to a four-year, $62 million contract.

The cornerback was well-respected in the Patriots' locker room and played last season under a $3.9 million tender offer.

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. After missing out on Andrew Norwell, who agreed to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Giants turned their attention to Solder and aggressively pursued him.

It's believed Solder will command a deal that could be worth as much as $14 million annually.

Solder's addition will be huge for the Giants, who are in desperate need of help along their offensive line. In the end, he also had reported interest from the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. With the imminent loss of Nate Solder, Patriots fans are itching for good news. He will be the NFL's highest-paid offensive lineman.

Solder will be the hottest of commodities going into free agency period.
