Giants Linked as Possible Trade Partners with Cleveland for OT Nate Solder

It is odd in how some seasons teams find synergy when it comes to making trades with one another. There’s been years the New York Giants have found those teams, and this year clearly that team is the Cleveland Browns.

The team has already made two huge deals this offseason, the first of which saw the team acquire offensive guard Kevin Zeitler for pass rusher Olivier Vernon. If you don’t recall that deal, click here to see the details.

The deal right now seems to be somewhat of a push, as both players have played well for their new team, with Zeitler doing his part on the offensive line for the G-Men, and Vernon helping out the pass rush for the Browns.

The much bigger deal between the two teams this offseason was a shocker for many Giants fans, as the team decided to build for the future, moving all-world wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns for a package that included draft picks and safety Jabril Peppers.

Now the Browns and Giants might just be at it again, as Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports tweeted out Cleveland could have interest in Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder.

The Browns have been linked to trying to land a offensive tackle, as their offensive line this season just hasn’t done a good enough job giving time to second-year quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Here’s the tweet from LaCanfora:

If the Browns are unable to pry Trent Williams out of Washington, the other LT I hear they are interested in is Nate Solder. They’ve already done a lot of business with the NYG, it’s worth noting

Solder was a first-round pick of the New England Patriots back in 2011, the 17th overall pick in the draft. He is a two-time Super Bowl champion and has played in 114 games, starting 111.

Back in March of 2018 he signed a four-year, $62 million contract with the Giants with $35 million guaranteed, making him the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league at the time.

The trade deadline is six days away on October 29th, and you can bet if the Giants can improve their team between now and then they are going to do so.

They realize that the 2019 season is a lost cause, and the organization already has their future quarterback in play in Daniel Jones, but they still have a long way to go if they are going to compete with the likes of the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.
