The New York Giants are close to landing what could be the final free agent piece to their revamped offensive line, agreeing in principle to a deal with veteran offensive tackle Mike Remmers.

Remmers, 29, has made several stops across the league after coming into the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2012. In addition to his upcoming time with the Giants, he has also spent time with the Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Diego Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, Carolina Carolina and then Minnesota on a second stint. He has appeared in 65 games as a pro with 64 total starts.

Remmers had predominantly played tackle until the Vikings moved him to guard last year where he started all 16 games. Remmers was the Viking’ right tackle in 2017 during Pat Shurmur’s tenure as offensive coordinator. He also made 32 starts at tackle as a member of the Panthers while Mike Shula was their offensive coordinator.

Remmers may very well be a stopgap for the Giants as they they continue to search for a right tackle anchor — something they did not address early the 2019 NFL Draft, instead opting for Kentucky offensive lineman George Asafo-Adjei in the seventh-round.

The Giants and Remmers have been in contact for several months, and this agreement will likely become official when the veteran can pass a physical. He is currently recovering from an undisclosed injury.
