Former Giants coach Ben McAdoo calls out Nate Solder

Former New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder parted ways with his team en route to the New York Giants’ organization earlier this offseason.

With major moves like that, there are always going to be two sides to the story: some for the change and some against it. But in Ben McAdoo’s case, he’s kind of in the middle range.

The former New York Giants head coach recently spoke with The New York Times about a number of topics, including calling out the team’s new offensive lineman.

“I don’t think he’s a very good player,” McAdoo said of Solder. “But I think it will help them in a lot of ways where they needed help in that room in the past and they haven’t had anyone to do that.”

Pro Football Focus ranked the Giants’ 2017 offensive line as the 7th worst in the league, so having Solder should help their rankings in that category.

Solder played seven seasons in New England and was part of three Super Bowls.
