Giants OT Nate Solder opts out, cites family’s health concerns

New York Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder has elected to opt out of the 2020 NFL season because of concerns about the coronavirus, he said in a statement Wednesday.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the 32-year-old Solder cited family concerns, including his son’s battle with cancer and his own bout with cancer. He also has a newborn son.

He said he “will deeply miss my teammates, coaches and everyone in the Giants organization.”

Solder, who won two Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, signed a four-year, $62 million contract with the New York Giants with $35 million guaranteed in March 2018. At the time, it made him the highest-paid offensive lineman in the league at the time.

In 2015, Solder was diagnosed with testicular cancer after his annual team physical. He missed only a few weeks of offseason activities and returned to start every game for the Patriots in 2014.

He has started all 32 games at left tackle for the Giants since joining the team.
