Jaguars, Norwell agree to $66.5M contract


A report on Monday indicated guard Andrew Norwell had cut his list of suitors down to the Giants, 49ers and Colts, but the picture changed on Tuesday morning.

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.

The team reached a record-setting contract agreement with Carolina Panthers guard Andrew Norwell during the NFL's legal tampering period, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Norwell, 26, has been one of the NFL's best guards during his four seasons in Carolina.




The Panthers signed right guard Trai Turner and left tackle Matt Kalil to contracts last season, limiting their ability to retain Norwell.

He was named a first-team All-Pro in 2017, the first such honor of his career, and was considered the highest-rated offensive lineman heading into free agency. Former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was attempting to lure Norwell to the Giants as part of a rebuilt offensive line.

The Jaguars weren't a reported finalist but given the money and the fact that they were just one game from the Super Bowl, that deal looks much more enticing than the other options. He was sacked 55 and 51 times in his first two seasons.
