In Solder, the Giants have a mainstay at left tackle.
Casserly also made a suggestion in his appearance on NFL Network that the Giants should now move Flowers to right guard, which he also tweeted about earlier in the day following news of Solder going to NY.
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.
The 6-foot-8, 325-pound Solder has spent his entire career with the New England Patriots, who drafted him in the 2011 first round out of Colorado. With the imminent loss of Nate Solder, Patriots fans are itching for good news. 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).

The Giants still have work to do on the line.
Croston played left and right tackle at Iowa but only was on the field for eight offensive snaps during the 2017 season after coming to the team as an undrafted free agent.
Revamping the offensive line is a top priority of general manager Dave Gettleman, and Solder's signing comes one day after All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell - believed to have been the Giants' top free agency target - chose the Jacksonville Jaguars. There have been a ton of players who have new homes.
