49ers among finalists to land All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell, per report

Norwell started all 16 games at left guard for Carolina previous year for the second straight season but the Panthers elected not to place the franchise tag on the former 2014 undrafted free agent out of Ohio State.

Serie A bids emotional goodbye to Astori
Fiorentina have farewelled fallen captain Davide Astori in the best possible way, defeating Benevento 1-0 at the Artemio Franchi on Sunday.

Many believed the Colts to have heavy interest in Norwell, who could have upgraded the offensive line in a big way, something that has become a project since Andrew Luck was drafted in 2012.

The U.K. has said it was "highly likely" Russian Federation was behind the poisoning, which left the pair in critical condition. Glushkov's death was confirmed by Damian Kudryavtsev, a board member of the Moscow Times, in a Facebook post Tuesday.

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. Third-year player Joshua Garnett missed all of last season with a knee injury and is an uncertain fit in Kyle Shanahan's offense. It was known that the Panthers couldn't retain Norwell, and many assumed Norwell was bound for NY to reunite with Dave Gettleman, the former Panthers GM who signed him in free agency after he went undrafted in 2014. He was sacked 55 and 51 times in his first two seasons. They averaged 4.1 yards per carry (18th) and 103.9 yards rushing per game (21st). Later, Ohio State's Billy Price, Georgia's Isaiah Wynn, UTEP's Will Hernandez and Iowa's James Daniels could be options.
