EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — After sitting last season because of family concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, New York Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder is back.

The 10-year veteran had a broad smile on his face after his first training camp practice in almost two years.

The decision was not an easy one for Solder, who was signed as a free agent in 2018 for $62 million over four years.

Sitting out 2020 cost him $9.9 million in salary. In return, he got $350,000 as a high-risk opt out.

Solder has no regrets. He insists his family will always come first.
