49ers ‘linked to’ impending free agent guard Andrew Norwell, per report

Mar 12, 2018 at 9:44 AM--

For some time, it was assumed that former Carolina Panthers guard Andrew Norwell is headed to the New York Giants. According to a report by Art Stapleton of, the San Francisco 49ers have been "linked" to the top guard in free agency.

Norwell, who is just 26 years old, was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State by the Panthers in 2014. The Giants are viewed as the leading candidate to land Norwell because of general manager Dave Gettleman. He held the same role with Carolina when Norwell signed in 2014.

Norwell was named a first-team All-Pro in 2017 and has started all but one of his 55 game appearances over his four NFL seasons, including 16 starts in each of the last two seasons. He did not allow a sack, was Pro Football Focus' third-highest graded guard, and the top-graded pass-blocking guard in 2017. In 2016, Norwell allowed just two sacks for the season.

Adding a player like Norwell would be huge for the 49ers, whose weakness along the offensive line is clearly along the interior. San Francisco re-signed center Daniel Kilgore to a three-year deal on February 14 and tackle Garry Gilliam, who has experience at guard, to a two-year extension on February 27.

The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased

Raheem Mostert asking to be 49ers' highest-paid running back, per report

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Mostert and his agent either want a new deal or want the running back to go to a team that will offer him one. What exactly is Mostert requesting from the 49ers? Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
