In hopes of improving an often-porous offensive line, the New York Giants are signing Mike Remmers, his agent announced on Twitter on Saturday afternoon.
Remmers agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million, with $1 million fully guaranteed and a max value of $4 million through play-time incentives, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.
Remmers was previously a starter for the Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers. He has also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams. Having played right and left tackle and most recently right guard, Remmers will be moving back to right tackle, his agent added. Remmers started all 16 games for the Vikings last season.
