Seeking offensive line help, the Browns have interest in trading for Giants OT Nate Solder, reports Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. However, the Browns' interest level is dependent on another pursuit.
La Canfora notes that the Browns will turn their attention toward attempting to acquire Solder only if they're unable to trade for Redskins OT Trent Williams.
The 31-year-old Solder is in the second year of a four-year deal he signed before the 2018 season.
Solder has a $12 million cap hit this season, with that hit rising to $19.5 million in 2020 and $20.5 million in 2021.
With the trade deadline on Oct. 29, Solder is among a handful of players the Giants could potentially look to deal with the team at 2-5 and likely staring at another season of missing the playoffs.
The Giants have done a lot of business with the Browns lately, including trading Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon there.
While recently discussing a potential trade of Solder, one scout told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano that "everyone needs offensive line help." Still, it would be risky for the Giants to trade one of the key pieces of their offensive line now that it's rookie Daniel Jones who is under center.
Two players who could be likelier to get dealt? Janoris Jenkins and Alec Ogletree.
Another player to keep an eye on is now-backup QB Eli Manning, but that situation is extremely complicated.
