Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!
General manager Dave Gettleman made sure to address the offensive line in 2018 and beyond, knowing veteran quarterback Eli Manning requires time in the pocket to succeed at a high level.
Manning has been forced to play behind a sub-par offensive front for years, which has ultimately led to his decline and mental dropoff. With a rebuilt line, it’s expected that he will show his true colors and revert back to his prime, however, father-time has its effects, and it could very well have taken its toll on the 15-year vet.
The left side of the line specifically should have a great 2019 season — Nate Solder and Will Hernandez have a year of experience together. Solder, who’s been dealing with an ankle ailment this summer, will return for training camp with a clean bill of health.
The former Patriots required arthroscopic surgery on his ankle to ensure it didn’t become a problem during the season. His return will allow the offensive line to continue building a rapport and help Kevin Zeitler/Mike Remmers get accustomed with the offensive scheme.
