Any offensive lineman entering negotiations with the Giants suddenly has some more leverage after seeing Norwell go to the Jaguars. He took on a larger role as a sophomore, starting 13 games at both left tackle and left guard.

According to an early Tuesday morning report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Andrew Norwell has agreed to a five-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Former Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was attempting to lure Norwell to the Giants as part of a rebuilt offensive line.

The Giants need some magic to get out of the situation they are in with their cap if they want to sign any free agents, even their own. Ian Rapoport of has since reported that the newly inked pact is a three-year deal worth $42 million with $25 million coming in the form of guaranteed money.

Norwell did not allow a sack, was Pro Football Focus' third-highest graded guard, and the top-graded pass-blocking guard in 2017.

The Colts number one priority should be protecting Luck when he returns next season, and it appears they are trying to do just that by making a push for Norwell.

However, prior to encountering the injury-plagued season in 2017-18, Robinson served as quite the prolific wide receiver for the Jaguars.
