A starter on the Giants' 2019 offensive line is on his way to Kansas City.
Mike Remmers, who started 14 games for the Giants at right tackle last season, has signed a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, per his agent.
Losing Remmers should not come as much of a shock for Giants fans, as it was likely even before the start of free agency that Remmers would be calling somewhere else home in 2020. After the Giants signed Cam Fleming earlier this week, the possibility of Remmers coming back became minuscule.
After being released by the Minnesota Vikings just two seasons into a five-year deal, Remmers inked a one-year contract with the Giants worth $2.5 million. He had a decent season after recovering from offseason back surgery, but it was clear that the 30-year-old was not going to be the Giants' long-term answer at the position.
Now, Fleming will likely step in at right tackle, though if the Giants draft one of the top tackles -- such as Tristan Wirfs, Mekhi Becton, or Andrew Thomas -- that player could possibly win the starting job.
Remmers joins former Giants corner/special teamer Antonio Hamilton in leaving Big Blue this offseason for the defending-champion Chiefs.
