7 NY Giants who will be playing elsewhere in 2022
OT – Nate Solder
Based on his play this season, it is entirely fair to question whether Solder will even be in the NFL next season, instead perhaps choosing to retire.
However, even if Solder opts to return for his 11th NFL season in 2022, he’ll most likely be playing elsewhere.
Through the first nine weeks of this season, Solder has allowed three sacks and 27 quarterback pressures.
Because the NY Giants are so cap-strapped, and will likely be aiming to rebuild the majority of the offensive line in front of quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley, moving on from Solder likely improves both situations.
Releasing Solder in 2022 would create $10 million in cap space while triggering a $4 million dead-money charge. For an organization with so many holes to fill, and given how poorly Solder has played this season, this seems like the most likely outcome.
