Report: Nate Solder has a contract in New England
Not long after Corey Liuget got his contract done with the San Diego Chargers, an agreement fell into place for Nate Solder.
The New England Patriots have a deal done with their first-round pick, according to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald. Solder, an offensive tackle from Colorado, gets a four-year contract.
That leaves cornerback Prince Amukamara, the 19th overall selection by the New York Giants, as the only unsigned first rounder. There is a good chance a guarantee of the fourth year of the deal is holding it up. The player drafted directly after Amukamara at No. 20, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn, received a full guarantee. Stay tuned.
