5 under the radar NY Giants players who should see more snaps down the stretch
NY Giants offensive tackle Matt Peart:
This is something that should have been done a very long time ago.
Nate Solder is not good anymore, and with the NY Giants seemingly having no chance of making the playoffs anymore. Why not give the younger tackle a chance?
Solder is 33, making way too much money, and honestly might retire after this season. Compared to Matt Peart, who the NY Giants selected in the 3rd round of the 2020 NFL draft, and is only 24. The NY Giants should at least give Peart a chance to start for the rest of the season and see what he can do.
Solder is awful in the run blocking department, this is where Matt Peart is at his best. This is why the NY Giants use him as a jumbo tight end in the red zone. While Peart can struggle in pass protection sometimes, we all know how bad Nate Solder can be. So why not use the tackle that is at least strong in one aspect of blocking?
If Peart does not work out, he doesn’t work out. The way I look at it, if you are going to play a bad right tackle, play the one who is young and has some amount of potential. We already know what we are getting out of Nate Solder, why not give Peart a chance?
