New York Giants veteran offensive linemen Nate Solder and Mike Remmers will both be ready for training camp.
The New York Giants had a few offensive linemen repair setbacks this offseason. Left tackle Nate Solder underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle, with right tackle Mike Remmers having undergone back surgery.
Despite both sitting out spring workouts and practices, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur made it known that they’d both be ready to go for training camp.
“Solder and Remmers will be going,” Shurmur said Wednesday, per Ed Valentine of Big Blue View. “I don’t see any of those guys, as we develop our list of guys that you’re curious about, that it’ll be any extended time (off the field).”
Solder is entering his second season with the Giants in 2019. He was the starting left tackle last year and will retain that role this season. Big Blue signed Remmers in May to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with $1 million guaranteed.
Remmers previously was a member of the Minnesota Vikings from 2017-18, where Shurmur was the full-time offensive coordinator in 2017. He’ll compete with Chad Wheeler for the right tackle spot. Remmers will work with the first-team offense, but the best player for that position will end up playing when the regular season rolls around.
The Giants will hold their first full-team training camp practice on Thursday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, NJ. Two weeks from then, on Aug. 8, they’ll face the New York Jets in their first preseason game at MetLife Stadium.
