In the end, Solder became the highest-paid left tackle in football when the Giants gave him a reported four-year deal worth over $60 million.

For all of his success, Solder, surprisingly, has never been selected to a Pro Bowl, though he was named an alternate for last season's game. A major reason for why the Giants went out and spent a lot on Solder was in due to how poor Erick Flowers has been in the last few years. The soon-to-be 30-year-old will get a four-year, $62 million deal, with $35 million guaranteed, according to Rapoport. Aside from the gaping hole left in the Patriots offensive line, Foxboro will feel the impact of Solder's loss in many other ways.

In Solder, the Giants have a mainstay at left tackle. 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).

NY will make Solder the NFL's highest-paid tackle.

Solder was the top tackle on the market.

Butler was long expected to say his goodbyes to the Pats' organization, especially because of his infamous benching in this past Super Bowl contest with the Philadelphia Eagles.

And while NY definitely has other needs, the draft is right around the corner. Just as Brady enjoyed having Solder protect his blind side, Manning should similarly benefit from this signing. Marcus Cannon is locked in at right tackle. It marked the first time he received a Pro Bowl invitation, although he didn't play in the game because the Patriots were in Super Bowl LII. Last night a small piece of good news was delivered: The Patriots will re-sign core special teamer Nate Ebner to a two-year deal.

Without Solder, the Patriots have a massive void at left tackle, where he started for the majority of the past seven seasons.

Top free agents available are players like Austin Howard, Greg Robinson, Justin Pugh, Chris Clark and Andre Smith.
