CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Former Carolina Panthers offensive guard Andrew Norwell is expected to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to multiple reports.
Pro Football Talk reported Tuesday that Norwell, who signed with the Panthers as an undrafted rookie in 2014, will sign a five-year, $66 million contract with $30 million guaranteed, which would make Norwell the NFL’s highest-paid guard in both average per year, total contract value, and guaranteed money per season.
According to Spotrac, Norwell earned $2.7 million with Carolina during the 2017-18 season. Former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was attempting to lure Norwell to the Giants as part of a rebuilt offensive line.
Norwell's deal with Jacksonville cannot be made official until the new NFL league year starts on Wednesday afternoon.
