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.
The Las Vegas native chose to forego his senior season with the Huskers to turn pro.
Gates began his Big Red career at right tackle.
