Butler started the Patriots' first two playoff games before he was mysteriously benched for the Super Bowl. NY had its heart set on Andrew Norwell, but he signed with Jacksonville. The Hall of Fame-bound quarterback should feel more comfortable with Solder holding down the left side in 2018 and beyond. Robinson, 30, who had 18 pass deflections and four interceptions last season with the Philadelphia Eagles, is signing with New Orleans. They would love to keep Solder, who has been Tom Brady's blindside protector for a long time.
Although the Patriots wanted to bring back Amendola, they couldn't afford his two-year, $12 million deal.
A first-round draft pick out of Colorado in 2011, Solder started 95 of 98 regular-season games and 16 postseason contests for the Patriots.
In addition to his generally high level of performance, Solder has also been fairly durable in his National Football League career.
There are really no intriguing options at left tackle in free agency.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have started fixing their woeful offensive line.
Butler, of course, was a Super Bowl hero several years until he fell out of favor with Bill Belichick and ended up being benched in this years past Super Bowl in which New England lost to Philly. There's no doubt that he'd certainly be a defensive back that could help shore up some of the problems that the secondary had last season.
Along with Norwell, former center Weston Richburg is also off the market, as ESPN's Adam Schefterreports Richburg has agreed to a five-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Gettleman already improved the position by re-signing restricted free-agent guard Jon Halapio on Monday. There are surely more moves to come from a man who believes the lifeblood of his team lies with the guys who do the dirty work up front.
