Tom Coughlin swooped in and signed the Giants' top offseason target, as offensive guard Andrew Norwell agreed to a long-term deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday.

Now, Stapleton is hearing that Norwell has narrowed down his choices to three finalists, which includes the 49ers.

Speculation had linked the Panthers guard to the New York Giants because of general manager Dave Gettleman, who held the same role with Carolina when Norwell signed in 2014.

According to Pro Football Focus, he was the only lineman not to allow a sack or quarterback hit in 2017.

He was named a first-team All-Pro in 2017, the first such honor of his career and was considered the highest-rated offensive linemen heading into free agency.

The Panthers placed a second-round tender on the 6-6, 325-pound Norwell before last season, guaranteeing him $2.75 million.

The Colts number one priority should be protecting Luck when he returns next season, and it appears they are trying to do just that by making a push for Norwell.
