Houston Texans: Team is going after two Patriots' free agents
NY couldn't go another offseason without finding a replacement for Flowers-be it through free agency or the draft. It would be wise to draft the starting left tackle of the future (and possibly the present) as early as possible.
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. Solder will more than fill that need. Now the 29-year-old is cashing in. Solder was in a tier by himself as the No. 1 free agent tackle. The Giants beat out the likes of Houston and Cleveland to land Solder. As the conversations went deeper, the Patriots were out-priced. Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald believes either/both guys could be retained at a pretty reasonable cost (less than two years, $9 million given to Marcus Cannon). According to Mass Live, Bill Belichick even called Dion Lewis at the NFL Combine to relay his interest in bringing back the running back.
Solder will receive a four-year, $60 million contract with a guarantee of about $35 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Of course, some of this was expected.
"From what I understand - and this can always change, as you guys know it is very fluid - it sounds like he is down to two teams: the Giants and the Texans", he said on NFL Network. That could be a tough task. It was a coup for Gettleman, who always has subscribed to the advice Tom Coughlin once gave him about building teams along the offensive and defensive lines, and Solder finally offers stability after Ereck Flowers' uneven run the past three seasons. He must have surveyed the market and realized that this was destined to be a particularly thin class of free agent tackles.
Solder is a solid left tackle, probably not at the elite level. At 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, Flowers looks more like a tackle than a guard, but players with his size and bulk have made the transition. Solder was far and away the best player available.
The New Orleans Saints pursued Butler as a restricted free agent a year ago, but the trade price was too high.
Garcia would be a great in-house option if he didn't spend all of 2017 on the non-football illness list with reported blood clots in his lungs. With the imminent loss of Nate Solder, Patriots fans are itching for good news. Robinson, 30, who had 18 pass deflections and four interceptions last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, is signing with New Orleans.

Britain to consider new tax mechanism for online sales

Donald Trump eyes massive tariffs on China tech sector
But I fear the opposite: a trade war and stagnation-because much of what Trump and his followers say is economically absurd. Many Republicans hold that imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum are an abuse of this law and are pushing to restrict it.
