Players can officially sign with teams at 4pm on Wednesday.

The Browns are just the latest team to be connected to Solder. During the Patriots' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, Solder played very well against a vaunted Eagles pass rush, giving up no sacks in the game. They would love to keep Solder, who has been Tom Brady's blindside protector for a long time.

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports the Giants are interested in free agent LT Nate Solder.

During an onstage interview Tuesday night at an awards show in downtown Cleveland, Thomas remained noncommittal when discussing his future - a decision that has kept the Browns in limbo. With more teams joining the fray, that will likely drive up Solder's price even more.

Only one of five players in history selected to the Pro Bowl in his first 10 seasons, Thomas had never missed a snap in his career before he got hurt while blocking on a running play against Tennessee on October 22.

Even after that flurry, the Browns still have the second-most cap space in the National Football League at $77.8 million, per Spotrac.

Prior to the acquisitions they made recently, it would have seemed impossible that the Browns could sign a player like Solder away from the Patriots, but they have something interesting brewing there.

Solder, a 2011 first-round pick (17th overall) should a have fun-filled time fielding offers from a multitude of teams.

"I've seen him putting (weight) back on now here recently, but he's Joe", Browns coach Hue Jackson told reporters at the Combine earlier this month. On Monday, Giardi confirmed that Indianapolis is in the market for Lewis.

He will too be a hot commodity and teams like the Texans will be clamoring among others for his services.

Mark Daniels, of the Providence Journal, cautioned not to rule out a return to Foxborough for the free agent.
