The hits just kept coming, as left tackle Nate Solder is now leaving for another organization as well.

NFL Network first reported Solder's decision to leave the New England Patriots and select the Giants over the Houston Texans.

NY will make Solder the NFL's highest-paid tackle.

A two-time Super Bowl champion, Solder was chosen by the New England Patriots in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Colorado. Expect the Patriots to be proactive in re-upping one or both of those guys if Solder does walk. It's possible that if Thomas came back, Solder could switch to the right side for a season.

According to Spotrac, Solder could command up to $13.2 million a year in his new contract. It's a steep price, but that's the cost of doing business in free agency, and there should be no buyer's remorse here.

Ereck Flowers, on the other hand, ranked 54th among offensive tackles after earning the best grade of his three-year career.

At this time, representatives for Foy and Smith have not commented while Netflix declined to address the shocking pay discrepancy. British actress Olivia Coleman is stepping in to play the older monarch as upcoming Season 3 of the show moves into the 1970s.

Fan-favorite Justin Pugh is still on the market for the Giants, if they want to re-sign him.

New England would be forced to figure things out on the fly, with potential left tackle candidates LaAdrian Waddle and Cameron Fleming also slated to be free agents.

Gettleman has acted swiftly to remake an offensive line that was at the root of the team's problems last season and a major reason the Giants moved on from GM Jerry Reese. At 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, Flowers looks more like a tackle than a guard, but players with his size and bulk have made the transition.

Jelks started at left tackle as a sophomore at Vanderbilt then missed two consecutive seasons with torn ACLs.

The Giants are in desperate need to rebuild their offensive line. In terms of internal options, the Pats also have last year's third-round pick, Tony Garcia, Cole Croston, Andrew Jelks and Jason King on the roster. You still have other people protecting Eli Manning.
