Jaguars Fully Committing to Run Game With Andrew Norwell Signing

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, went undrafted out of Ohio State in 2014 but last season earned First Team All-Pro honors for the Panthers while playing under offensive line coach Ray Brown, who is now with the Cardinals in the same position. He is going to become NFL's highest paid guard - $13.3 million average.

The Norwell signing comes as a bit of a surprise because the New York Giants were reportedly close to landing the top-rated guard.

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.

According to Pro Football Focus, Norwell was the only offensive lineman not to allow a QB hit or sack in 2017. But after four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, he's moving on.

Norwell immediately solidifies the left side of the Jacksonville line that already had Cam Robinson at left tackle.

Free agents can not officially sign with teams until the new league year begins on Wednesday. He was sacked 55 and 51 times in his first two seasons.
