Several NY Giants players are entering their final games in New York, as this season comes to a close

The NY Giants roster management has been a source of severe pain for the organization over the past decade.

Failed draft picks and bad free agent signings have crippled the Giants from a cash flow perspective and their record proves it. A fifth straight double-digit loss season was sewn up with a dismal performance at home against NFC East rival the Dallas Cowboys last week.

It is time to look towards 2022 and replace some overpaid veterans with some less expensive younger options.

Here’s a look at four veterans who are entering their final three weeks in an NY Giants uniform:

Nate Solder

A first-round pick for the New England Patriots, Solder won two Super Bowls anchoring the line in front of Tom Brady. When he signed with the NY Giants in 2018, Dave Gettleman made him the highest-paid lineman in the NFL.

A prime example of the team reaching and trying to plug holes by overpaying a veteran.

Solder opted out in 2020 due to COVID-19, then the Giants inexplicably re-signed him in March 2021. Solder, 33, played poorly, and with Andrew Thomas clearly entrenched as the franchise left tackle, it is far past the time for Solder to be released.
