Carolina Panthers All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell is headed to Jacksonville Jaguars on a five-year, $66.5 million contract that includes $30 million guaranteed, as ESPN first reported, making him the NFL's highest paid guard at $13.3 million per year.
Norwell was a mainstay at left guard since being inserted into the Panthers' starting lineup as an undrafted rookie in 2014.
Nothing is official until Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET but the Colts have lost out on some of the big names early in the legal tampering period as wide receiver Allen Robinson intends to sign with the Chicago Bears.
Quenton Nelson is the top offensive guard in the draft
Either way, missing out on Norwell is a blow to general manager Dave Gettleman and the Giants, who expected to sign the All-Pro and begin retooling their disastrous offensive line.
At the guard position, ex-Titans' Josh Kline could be an option for the Giants, but Tennessee is in talks to keep the 28-year-old in house.
Norwell is arguably the best free-agent on the market and also one of the best offensive lineman in the NFL.
Former New England Patriots offensive tackle Nate Solder could be an option to anchor the line and start opposite Ereck Flowers.
