Big Blue Report: News and Notes

With Giants camp opening this week, here are some news and notes heading into the 2020 campaign.

-Solder Out

Starting left tackle Nate Solder decided to step away this season because of health concerns for himself and is family. Most notable his younger son who is battling cancer.

“He is doing what is best for his family” Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman stated on Wednesday.

The Giants will move with some financial windfall, but their offensive line does take a hit as he has won a super bowl playing that position.

Solder has had a real positive effect on young players such as Will Hernandez.

This might open the door for rookie Andrew Thomas and Matt Peart as well as veteran Cameron Fleming to win the spot.

Baker Deactivated; Taylor Added

Second year pro DeAndre Baker was deactivated this week as he is still under investigation for criminal activity earlier this summer. There is no time frame for his return.

Baker has not participated in any of the off season workouts programs and the team has made contingency plans as they were awarded Shakial Taylor off of waivers.

Taylor was waived by Denver earlier in the week.

Rosas Released

Kicker Aldrick Rosas was released earlier in the week after his own legal battles begin to heat up as he was charged with three misdemeanors stemming from a hit and run and driving reckless and much more of a nightmare situation.

Rosas joined the roster in 2017 and made the Pro Bowl in 2018 but struggled last season.

The team added former Jets kicker Chandler Catanzaro to fill the void left by Rosas.

-Rookie Footage

The New York Giants yesterday released footage of their rookies working out with the coaching staff to the media so we can view some of the progress the young guns are making.
