For several weeks, many had thought that Andrew Norwell going to the New York Giants as a free agent would be a sure thing since some reports had it as a "done deal".

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. Instead, he signed with Jacksonville during the Legal Tampering Period.

Even though general manager Chris Ballard prefers to build through the draft, plugging holes in free agency is necessary and Norwell is a necessity to add this offseason.

What will make the task of rebuilding the offensive line through free agency particularly hard for the Giants this year, is that there is such a limited crop of players available and teams are flush with cap space which could drive the market up even further.

Norwell is arguably the best free-agent on the market and also one of the best offensive lineman in the NFL.
