Browns reportedly chasing Patriots OT Nate Solder; could hint at Joe Thomas retirement

Houston Texans: Team is going after two Patriots' free agents

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. Plus, he is relatively cheap heading into the final year of his contract with a 2018 salary of $2.397 million and a salary-cap hit of $4.5 million - nothing extraordinary for a starting player. On average, Solder's annual salary will be approximately $15.5 million.

Ereck Flowers is not going anywhere, other than a new position.

The Giants missed out on landing highly coveted offensive lineman Andrew Norwell on Tuesday.

By signing Solder, the Giants can check offensive tackle off their list of priorities heading into the draft, which will make it even easier to select Saquon Barkley or one of the top quarterbacks available with the second overall pick.

During his tenure in New England, Solder appeared in four Super Bowls, including a loss to the Giants during his first season in 2011, when he was named to the NFL's All-Rookie team.

Solder has spent the past seven seasons helping to protect Tom Brady as the Patriots' left tackle. Bill Belichick's fondness for special teams is well-known, and the coach had high praise for the player before the team's eventual win in Super Bowl XLIX. To me, that meant re-signing Solder.

Rain changing to snow tonight could lead to messy Monday commute
We should get into the low or mid 40s Thursday with a nice mix of clouds and sun, but the wind again will be a cooling factor. Rounds of snow showers and squalls are working in from northwest to southeast and will continue overnight .

Bradham resided in Buffalo for the first four years of his National Football League career before signing a two-year deal with Philadelphia in March 2016.

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports the Giants are interested in free agent LT Nate Solder.

The Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans are other teams that have been reported in the hunt for Solder.

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was in the NY personnel department in 2011 when the Patriots selected Solder before the Giants had a chance to do the same.

Center Weston Richburg is expected to sign with San Francisco, and versatile Justin Pugh is a free agent.

If they bring back either, the team would also likely try to add another tackle in the upcoming draft - the Pats reportedly met with UCLA's Kolton Miller and Florida State's Rick Leonard at the Combine.
