Report: 49ers linked to top free agent offensive lineman Andrew Norwell

Free agents can not officially sign with teams until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

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.

The Ohio State alum in 2017 was the only guard with more than 200 pass blocking snaps to not allow a sack or quarterback hit, according to Pro Football Focus.

Left guard Andrew Norwell is leaving the Carolina Panthers; he's reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

YouTube tested the setting on desktop during the first few months of 2017 before rolling out its new desktop design in August. Google is rolling out its dark theme update to iOS users today, and plans to release the update to Android users "soon".

Norwell's new contract will pay out at an average of $13.3 million per season, slightly edging out Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Russell Okung-whose current agreement brings in a $13.25 million salary-for the highest annual income of any offensive lineman.

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.

The Giants are a logical landing spot because former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman took the same role this offseason and need to shore up the offensive line. He was sacked 55 and 51 times in his first two seasons.
