Jaguars placed LG Andrew Norwell on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.
Coach Doug Marrone said it's unclear if Norwell requires surgery. It's an inglorious end to Norwell's first highly-paid campaign in Jacksonville. Norwell did do his job when on the field, earning typically high marks from Pro Football Focus. It is worth noting they were down from his elite 2017, however. Now 27, Norwell will be missing his first games since 2015. He should be ready to rock for training camp next summer. Norwell is signed through 2022. Nov 26 - 2:50 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell is expected to miss "a few weeks" with a sprained ankle.

It is ultimately good news after Norwell had to be carted off the field on Sunday. Even so, the injury leaves the Jaguars even thinner along the offensive line. Considering Jacksonville's almost non-existent playoff chances, it would not be surprising if Norwell is shut down.
Nov 26 - 8:50 AM

Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell was carted off the field in the second half of Sunday's Week 12 game against Buffalo.

He could put no pressure on the leg. The Jaguars are already missing their top-two left tackles and starting C Brandon Linder, while RG A.J. Cann has dealt with a balky hamstring. Norwell is the highest-paid lineman on the team.

Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell (calf) returned to practice on Monday.

A minor calf injury kept him out for about a week. Tashaun Gipson (ankle) and Austin Seferian-Jenkins (chest) were also back at practice on Monday. The Jags' big free-agent signing earned PFF's top pass-blocking grade among guards with Carolina last season.

Jaguars LG Andrew Norwell (calf) is not expected to practice on Sunday.

The Jaguars' big free-agent addition is out with a minor calf injury. Taven Bryan (abdomen) and Jeremy Parnell (knee) are also expected to sit out Sunday's practice.

Jaguars signed OG Andrew Norwell, formerly of the Panthers, to a five-year, $66.5 million contract.

The deal includes a whopping $30 million fully guaranteed and easily makes Norwell the highest paid guard in the league. The Jaguars were not among the teams reported to be suitors for Norwell, but the move makes sense. With Patrick Omameh headed to free agency and A.J. Cann at best a replacement-level player, Jacksonville needed better guard play if they intend to remain a ground-and-pound offense. This signing all but guarantees that is the plan moving forward. Already a solid RB1, this is just more good news for Leonard Fournette.

North Jersey's Art Stapleton reports free agent OG Andrew Norwell has narrowed his three finalists to the Giants, 49ers, and Colts.

One league source reportedly told Stapleton the Giants are "all-in" on Norwell. The All-Pro guard has been linked to the Giants all offseason, but it appears the cap-flush 49ers and Colts are making one last push. Browns RG Kevin Zeitler received $12 million annually last offseason and Norwell's deal is expected to exceed that.

The Record reports the 49ers are "pushing" for free agent OG Andrew Norwell.

Norwell has been strongly linked to the Giants, but the cap-flush 49ers appear ready to make a splash this spring. The Miami Herald has reported the Dolphins are not expected to be suitors for Norwell's services. What we know for sure is that Norwell will not be back in Charlotte.
Mar 12 - 1:36 PM

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline says "belief" around the league is free agent OG Andrew Norwell signing with the Giants is "a done deal."

The top guard on the market, Norwell was one of ex-Panthers GM Dave Gettleman's most-prized discoveries as an undrafted free agent. Gettleman now runs the Giants, who have needs all over the line. At $11.7 million per year, the Raiders made Kelechi Osemele the NFL's highest-paid guard in 2016. Osemele was topped by Browns RG Kevin Zeitler's $12.0 million annually last offseason.
Mar 8 - 12:47 AM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said it is "going to be tough" to keep impending free agent OG Andrew Norwell.

The writing seems to be on the wall for Norwell, with several reporters and now the coach suggesting he will leave in free agency. The best interior lineman available, Norwell should be able to land whatever deal he is looking for on the open market. Helmed by former Panthers GM Dave Gettleman, the Giants are expected to have interest in Norwell.
Mar 1 - 11:12 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports the Giants are expected to "make a concerted effort" to sign impending free agent OG Andrew Norwell.

The dots connect easily here. New York is desperate for offensive-line help, and Norwell was signed as an UDFA in Carolina by new Giants GM Dave Gettleman. 26-year-old Norwell figures to be one of the hottest names on the market in two weeks and could reset the guard market after the Browns made Kevin Zeitler the league's highest-paid guard as a free agent last offseason. Norwell isn't expected to re-sign in Carolina with so much money tied up in the Panthers' line.
Feb 27 - 9:15 PM

The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person believes it is "highly doubtful" the Panthers re-sign impending free agent OG Andrew Norwell.

Person believes GM Marty Hurney made his decision on Norwell when he signed fellow OG Trai Turner to a four-year, $45 million extension last year. Carolina probably does not want even more money invested in the guard position, making it likely they let Norwell walk. Easily the best interior lineman available, Norwell will be looking for something close to the five-year, $60 million deal Kevin Zeitler landed last spring.
Feb 26 - 9:40 AM's Ian Rapoport confirms the Panthers are unlikely to use the franchise tag on free agent OG Andrew Norwell.

The Charlotte Observer had the same report three days ago. New/old Panthers GM Marty Hurney must believe he already has too much money tied up in his offensive line. Norwell would be due roughly $14.3 million under the tag. Norwell is Rotoworld's No. 1 free agent guard.
Feb 22 - 1:47 PM

The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person doesn't expect the Panthers to use the franchise tag on free agent LG Andrew Norwell.

Carolina has a ton of money tied up in its offensive line with LT Matt Kalil, C Ryan Kalil, and RG Trai Turner. Tagging Norwell would leave the Panthers on the hook for a guaranteed $14.3 million-ish, money they'd likely prefer to use elsewhere. Norwell, 26, is one of the top overall free agents available.
Feb 19 - 6:15 PM

The Charlotte Observer believes the Panthers are in danger of losing LG Andrew Norwell in free agency.

The Panthers already have a ton of money invested in their offensive line, and 26-year-old former UDFA Norwell is coming off another excellent season. Beat writer Jourdan Rodrigue believes Norwell could be in for a reunion with ex-Panthers GM Dave Gettleman in New York.
