NFL

Volin Boston Globe: Sunday Football Notes:
Here’s a look at the latest buzz in NFL free agency
“The hottest free agent you’ve never heard of: Norwell, who started 45 of 48 games the last three years for Carolina. Expect a bidding war between the Giants and Cardinals, who should be fighting over all of the Panthers’ free agents. Giants GM Dave Gettleman and Cardinals coach Steve Wilks both came from Carolina.”
