Patriots exercise fifth-year option on LT Nate Solder
Nate Solder has a job -- a new salary -- for the 2015 season.
Since he was selected No. 17 overall in the 2011 draft, Patriots tackle Nate Solder has started 44 of the 47 games he's played, and he's coming off a season in which he ranked ninth among all tackles by Pro Football Focus.
Thus, it makes sense that New England would exercise its fifth year option on the solid left tackle, and that's exactly what the Patriots have done.

As pointed out in the CBSSports.com fifth-year option tracker, Solder is the ninth player from that draft class to have his option picked up.
It means that Solder, at this juncture, will play in New England in 2015 for $7.438 million
