Andrew Norwell is slated to become the NFL's highest-paid guard as he intends to sign a five-year, $66.5 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday.
The deal includes $30 million fully guaranteed for Norwell, who has been in the Carolina Panthers' starting lineup for the majority of games since joining the club as an undrafted rookie in 2014.
The contract cannot be finalized until the new league year opens on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
Norwell, 26, was the lone NFL lineman not to allow a sack or quarterback hit last season, according to Pro Football Focus.
