ESPN is reporting that according to unidentified sources, the New York Giants are expected to make a strong play for soon-to-be unrestricted free agent offensive guard Andrew Norwell (Carolina Panthers) if he hits the open market on March 12th. The 26-year old Norwell was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Panthers after the 2014 NFL Draft. Norwell has started 54 of the 55 regular-season games he has played in the last four seasons. He made the Pro Bowl last season.
