I swear to you. I thought Solder was going to come in here and improve this line. Nope. probably our worse player.

If Solder retires I'm pretty sure it frees up 16 million dollars, which honestly would be pretty fucking sweet.

His dead cap number is around $10.5mm, so the cap savings are only $6mm

His cap savings would have been far larger at $14mm....but Gettlemen didn't cut him last year, so now it's less.

I wouldn't give up on Nate Solder just yet. 

Mitigating circumstances around his performance. 

It depends...I'm assuming Zeitler is a cap casualty...so if the Giants bring in two solid starters (i.e. on the interior line) through free agency and/or the draft, I'd be okay with Solder for another year.

But if we're going into the year with Thomas, Lemeuix, Gates, Hernandez and Solder as our starters than we're fucked.

He has always been an average tackle who played for an above average team.  I never expected him to elevate the play of the rest of the offensive line which is why I'm not disappointed by his performance so far.  Paying an average player more does not make him better at his position.  I'm just glad Flowers isn't here anymore.
