The New York Giants and veteran offensive lineman Mike Remmers agreed in principle to a one-year, $2.5 million deal on Saturday that could be worth up to $4 million based on potential incentives.
Remmers provides the Giants with the last piece to their offensive line puzzle — a starting right tackle.
Here’s a quick look at five things to know about Remmers:
Remmers took months to join the Giants because of an inability to pass a physical. And while the injury hasn’t been disclosed for whatever reason, it was significant enough for general manager Dave Gettleman to keep a close eye on.
“Well, he’s still rehabbing, and we’re continuing to talk with him, so we’ll see,” Gettleman said in late April. “Time will tell. Got to rehab. Going to bring him in and take another look eventually.”
Even now, the Giants and Remmers have only agreed to a deal in principle, which may indicate he’s not yet ready to pass a physical, but that it could be on the horizon.
It’s unlikely anything will crop up to derail the signing now, but it has happened before.
