Andrew Norwell to the New York Giants is a matter of when and not if, according to a recent report. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reported on Tuesday Norwell to the Giants is a "done deal" once free agency gets underway on March 14th. Pauline's report lines up with previous reports from ESPN's Jordan Raanan, draft analyst Chad Forbes, and Pauline himself. The buzz has been building and it appears the Giants are just days away from the landing the first major piece on their revamped offensive line. At The Combine, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman himself waxed poetic about how important the offensive guard position is in today's NFL game and why he has no reservations about spending at a position where the general consensus goes against it. Speaking of spending big, the Giants will have to do so in order to officially sign Norwell. The expectation is that Norwell will command the largest contract in the history of the NFL at the offensive guard position. Last offseason, the Cleveland Browns made free agent offensive guard Kevin Zeitler the highest-paid player at his position with a five-year, $60 million contract worth $12 million annually.
