New York Giants are continuing with the efforts to overhaul their offensive line and have now landed the services of free agent right tackle Mike Remmers. According to reports, Remmers, who last played with Minnesota Vikings, inked a one-year deal.
SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports that the contract is worth $2.5 million with $1 million guaranteed. Remmers can earn an extra $1.5 million through incentives, bringing the worth to $4 million.
The deal was confirmed by the player’s agent Brett Tessler on Twitter.
“Happy to announce that Mike Remmers just agreed in principle to a deal with the New York Giants and is looking forward to moving back to his natural position of right tackle. His last 2 seasons playing that position he helped his teams to a Super Bowl and an NFC Championship game,” – Tessler tweeted.
Mike Remmers started his NFL career in 2012, signing a deal with the Denver Broncos as an unrestricted free agent. He was cut by the Broncos before the start of the season but ended up spending time with several teams before finally landing a starting gig with the Carolina Panthers in 2014.
After two years in Carolina, Remmers signed with the Vikings, who used him as a starter on several positions including right tackle, tackle, and right guard.
