Jaguars To Land Andrew Norwell On Five-Year, $66.5M Deal

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Norwell, who spent the first four years of his career with the Carolina Panthers, will sign a $66.5 million deal, including $30 million fully guaranteed.

However, in the end, the Bears have ultimately turned to the free agent market - which means not giving up running back Jordan Howard - in order to help soon-to-be second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

One of the biggest players in National Football League free agency last year, the Jacksonville Jaguars hope they're spending well again this year: the team has reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with left guard Andrew Norwell.

According to Art Stapleton, a New York Giants beat writer, the Indianapolis Colts are among three finalists to land All-Pro offensive guard Andrew Norwell.

Free agent offensive guard Andrew Norwell is on the verge of a record-setting contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. At $13.3 million per year, he'll be the NFL's highest-paid guard. It also strikes a blow to the Giants as General Manager Dave Gettleman drafted Norwell in Carolina and hoped to make him the centerpiece of an overhauled offensive line in his first offseason in his new job.

The move upgrades the interior of the Jaguars line, which should make both Leonard Fournette and Blake Bortles happy as they head into the 2018 season. In 2016, Norwell allowed just two sacks for the season.
