Former Nebraska offensive tackle Nick Gates reportedly agreed to a NFL free agent deal with the New York Giants on Saturday.
Gates started a total of 35 games in his Husker career, including a stretch of 25 in a row at left tackle in his last two seasons at NU. That streak was the longest by a starting left tackle at Nebraska since 2001.
