Texans Reportedly Interested In Patriots Free Agents Nate Solder, Malcolm Butler

So what does this mean for the Patriots going forward?

But Solder isn't the only New England free agent the Texans are interested in adding. And they haven't addressed the left tackle position since trading Duane Brown to the Seattle Seahawks prior to the trade deadline. Since he was drafted at No. 17 overall in 2011, Solder has been the glue that's held together a line often in flux - and he's done it while protecting the blind side of an aging Tom Brady.

According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, he's a huge priority.

There's one other X factor in Solder's decision moving forward. He attributes that partly to the excellent care Solder's 2-year-old son, Hudson, has received while undergoing treatment for kidney cancer in Boston.

On Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported Houston is "among several National Football League teams displaying interest" in the New England Patriots cornerback. But it's not like there aren't other pediatric cancer centers in major cities around the USA or the option isn't there to travel back-and-forth given the right situation.

"I'm also told the Patriots are being quite aggressive in their attempt to keep him", King wrote in his weekly MMQB column.

Solder allowed four sacks in 16 games with the Patriots in 2017. He suffered a season-ending biceps tear back in 2015, missing 12 games.

Solder is the best left tackle available this offseason and teams are reportedly lining up to make their pitches with the NFL's legal tampering period underway.
