The Giants, with $24.2 million in salary-cap space, have made it clear that rebuilding the offensive line is their top offseason priority. Here are some players they may be focused on in free agency:
Andrew Norwell, G
From undrafted to All-Pro, Norwell’s career has blossomed at Carolina to make him one of the best interior linemen in the NFL. Now he’s about to become one of the wealthiest, too.
Nate Solder, T
He’s been a mainstay at left tackle for the Patriots since he was drafted in 2011, but his time in New England seems to be coming to an end. In a market bereft of established tackles, he’ll be the premier player available.
Senio Kelemete, G
Gettleman pointed to guard play as a big reason for the Saints’ success last season. Kelemete started eight games up front for the Saints as the backup and their offense did not suffer. His teammates called him the MVP because of his versatility and production.
Jack Mewhort, T
Knee injuries slowed him down the past two years but he was a solid pass protector for the Colts before that. If the medical staff greenlights it, he’d be a solid addition to the Giants.
Ryan Jensen, C
Started 16 games for the Ravens in 2017 showing good physicality and run-blocking in a contract year that should garner him lots of attention (and money) this week. A rising up-and-comer at the position.
Cameron Fleming, T
Mostly a backup during his four years with the Patriots, he showed he can step in and play when he started two playoff games for the Patriots at right tackle this past postseason, including the Super Bowl.
