The 49ers are considering making a significant addition to their offensive line through free agency as the free agent negotiating period begins Monday.
It was reported that the Indianapolis Colts were one of three "finalists" in the sweepstakes for coveted free agent guard Andrew Norwell but it seems there was a wild card in the group. Per Over the Cap, the deal set new highs for guards in total value, average per seasons, and guarantees.
However, in the end, the Bears have ultimately turned to the free agent market - which means not giving up running back Jordan Howard - in order to help soon-to-be second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
Chhattisgarh: 8 CRPF personnel killed in blast triggered by Naxals
All the personnel were killed due to the impact of the blast even as many were thrown out of the vehicle, officials said. CRPF officials said that the Naxalites blew an anti-Landmine vehicle in Kistaram police station area of the district.
Norwell, 26, entered the National Football League as an undrafted free agent and claimed the starting left guard spot in 2014.
Bortles was sacked just 24 times last season; in 2016, that number was 34. It also strikes a blow to the Giants as General Manager Dave Gettleman drafted Norwell in Carolina and hoped to make him the centerpiece of an overhauled offensive line in his first offseason in his new job.
San Francisco last season allowed 43 sacks, tied for the seventh most in the NFL.
