It's early and all, maybe I just didn't read this right

Hearing All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell is down to three finalists: #49ers, #Colts and #NYGiants, per league source.
No income tax

in Florida...
This would be a huge blow  
dep026 : 3/13/2018 6:40 am : link
And very disappointing.
At that number they can have him  
Go Terps : 3/13/2018 6:41 am : link
.
Hopefully they use this money wisely  
Big Rick in FL : 3/13/2018 6:41 am : link
Should be able to get 2 starting OL for that price.
Well Mr. Gettleman  
Emil : 3/13/2018 6:43 am : link
Certainly has his work cut out for him.

Very true, but who.

Got to wonder how much Solder is going to get.
Cuzzo got paid  
TheGhostofBlueGuy : 3/13/2018 6:45 am : link
Good for him. You earned it.
It's down to the Giants, 49ers, and Colts..  
Brown Recluse : 3/13/2018 6:46 am : link
No wait! He's signing with Jacksonville!
DG already get used to Reeseís chair

Just like that weíre fucked
Would have been Nice  
djstat : 3/13/2018 6:47 am : link
But glad DG didnít pony up that kind of coin for him.
Really disappointed  
BleedBlue : 3/13/2018 6:48 am : link
I think the chances of Nelson just went up big league

I'd make a push for solder now.
I'm just happy  
madeinstars : 3/13/2018 6:51 am : link
We didn't spend half our cap space on a guard.
Like George Young said  
NikkiMac : 3/13/2018 6:53 am : link
Itís always about the money 💴 and 3-13 last year doesnít help......
Wow this sucks  
Rjanyg : 3/13/2018 6:53 am : link
Want Norwell but that price is crazy. Jacksonville is building quite the team down there.

Tom Coughlin overpaying the hog Molies.
Tom Coughlin just gave the Giants the finger.

Wow  
NikkiMac : 3/13/2018 6:55 am : link
What do left tackles get now 20 million ?
The odds for a trade down may have just increased.  
GMen23 : 3/13/2018 6:56 am : link
If Barkley goes 1, and we don't love Darnold, et all, Trading two for 4 and 33, 35, may have just got more realistic. We need Norwell or Nelson. I know it's a long way to the draft, but 5 JAGS on the OL ain't cutting.
Oh well. Not the end of the world.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/13/2018 6:58 am : link
That's a ton of $ for him too.
Why  
bigfrank612 : 3/13/2018 6:59 am : link
Is everyone acting surprised by the contract numbers for Norwell? Itís been said for months now that he would get $13mil/per. The contract has been compared to zeitlers all off season. Have no idea what you guys expected him to get and what NYG would have to offer.
...  
Mdgiantsfan : 3/13/2018 6:59 am : link
Big swing and a miss smh
Some free agents it appears want to sign with teams...  
GFAN52 : 3/13/2018 7:01 am : link
with the best shot at the playoffs.
Itís disappointing to lose out on him  
bigbluehoya : 3/13/2018 7:03 am : link
But Iíd have been a bit disappointed paying that much, if Iím honest.

As a side note, the professional sports leagues have a real competitive balance issue on their hands with the incongruity in state taxes, IMO.
The giants need more then 1 player on Ol  
DavidinBMNY : 3/13/2018 7:03 am : link
And they are the team staring Nelson, who also is a guard in the face in FA.

I expect they will sign 1 or 2 lesser OL.
maybe we go the mobile QB route now

Not that I get a vote, but if Iím Gettleman I go hard after Solder and I trade back with Buffalo, draft McGlichney at 12, Billy price at #22, and use the extra picks I just got in the 2nd/3rd round to either move back into the late first and take the best remaining QB or RB.

The must get a QB crowd wonít like this, but I like Lauletta in the second and Iím not in love with any of the top Qbs at 2.
Thatís a lot of cheddar.  
McNally's_Nuts : 3/13/2018 7:09 am : link
I think at that point, the answer is probably no.
Frank I agree  
Chip : 3/13/2018 7:09 am : link
I thought it would have been closer to 14 mil a year. Structure the contract in year one at 7 mil. TC gets revenge
That does suck......we really need tackles  
George from PA : 3/13/2018 7:10 am : link
As we can make due with our guards.

Still had my hopes to get a pro bowl guard.....
Fine.

Lets get the line fixed some other way

Some of you guys want an O-line so bad, you don't want any other players.
Time to go out  
bigbluehoya : 3/13/2018 7:13 am : link
And nab Quinton Spain on a RFA deal that makes it hard for TEN to match. Ten already has a lot invested in their OL, so maybe it wonít take silly numbers to get something done. Worst case scenario, TEN matches and you played a price-enforcing role in the market.
Go after Solder now  
jeff57 : 3/13/2018 7:13 am : link
Focus on the interior in the draft.
Not Getting a QB will keep Jags from SB

But when will he get a QB?
Did the same thing 1996 with Jags.

Good news  
Chip : 3/13/2018 7:15 am : link
It does set the market for Zack Martin at 14 mil and Dallas will have to deal with him next season.
FWIW

Highest Average Annual Value - Current OL Contracts:

G Andrew Norwell $13.3M
OT Russell Okung $13.25M
OT Trent Williams $13.2M

Best thing that has happened  
section125 : 3/13/2018 7:16 am : link
in FA so far. That is waaaayyyyyyy to much money for a guard. Yes he is good, very good, but he alone will not solve the oline problem.

Donít put me in that camp. Iím not OL or bust. Also, the picks you get from a trade still allow you plenty of opportunity to get other players.

With a day to go before FA, the Giants have no starting guards, a dreadful LT, and no RT on the roster. A 37 year old QB, not a ton of cap space, an all pro SS to pay, a locker room cancer CB, and an all world but troubled WR to deal with. Gettleman is going to have to pull off a minor miracle.

Silver lining
The top guard signed for 12.5 last season.

It's not a crazy contract. Either you want good players or you don't.
Yea  
big canoe jeff : 3/13/2018 7:22 am : link
Good indictment on Reese. Roster looks like that of an expansion team.
Money Money Money  
Dragon : 3/13/2018 7:24 am : link
Nah itís not about the Money? Never felt this was a good move for us so itís a great signing.
What is this I'm experiencing right now.  
Brown Recluse : 3/13/2018 7:25 am : link
It feels familiar....like I've been here before.

Oh, oh yeah...I remember now. Its having high hopes that come crashing down in disappointment. There was a term for that though... what was it... right on the tip of my tongue...

OH! Thats right.

Being a Giants fan.
Big deal  
Fish : 3/13/2018 7:25 am : link
Barely knew who this guy was a few months ago. He got mentioned as a player can help us, an upgrade and everyone thinks heís the greatest. See ya. Next.
Fournette and Bortles are happy,  
Diver_Down : 3/13/2018 7:26 am : link
and it is evident that TC has the Bank locked down. The tweet last night had no indication that Norwell was in consideration with Jax. 12 hours later - he has agreed in principle to be the highest paid guard on the First Coast. No leaks on TC's ship.

Good lord you are insufferable. So you are only willing to sign the top available talent if it comes at a lower than market value price?

There was no scenario in which Norwell was going to sign a cap friendly deal, he was clearly the top available FA o-lineman and these guys have been getting paid more and more each year.
The saga of attempting to fix the O-line  
Sonic Youth : 3/13/2018 7:27 am : link
continues and moves into it's 6th year on a bad note.
Another year of futility  
Reb8thVA : 3/13/2018 7:29 am : link
Smacking us in the face. Yeah it was a lot of coin to lay down but thatís what happens when your drafting consistently sucks for the last six years. There are consequence. In Reese we Trust
