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 a NFC Championship game.

Two weeks ago, Giants GM Dave Gettleman told reporters that they planned on hosting Remmers for his second visit with the team to check up on his rehab, so this isn’t a big surprise.
Remmers, 29, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State back in 2012. He lasted just a few months with the team before signing on to the Buccaneers practice squad a week into the 2012 season.
Since then, Remmers has played for a few teams including the Chargers, Vikings and Rams before he signed to the Panthers’ active roster in 2014.
After a few years in Carolina, Remmers signed a five-year, $30 million deal with the Vikings back in 2017. However, Minnesota elected to release him this offseason.
In 2018, Remmers started all 16 games for the Vikings and was ranked by Pro Football Focus as the No. 48 guard out of 77 qualifying players.
