There’s plenty of time for things to change, but from the sound of the internet bustle, the Arizona Cardinals will be missing out on Andrew Norwell.
NFL Free Agency 2018: Andrew Norwell to Giants called "done deal" https://t.co/qOTPFwIv3J— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) March 6, 2018
This is a blow to all teams who were interested in the All Pro guard, but the Cardinals can take solace in one thing…
They have the man in Ray Brown who helped develop not only Norwell, but Trai Turner, into All Pro players.
Brown’s impact could be bigger than any Norwell could make if Brown is able to replicate his success that he had with the Carolina Panthers.
If he is unable too, then obviously missing out on Norwell will be a bigger issue down the line, but the reality is, Brown has molded talent. Maybe better than any other offensive line coach in the NFL.
Missing on Norwell hurts, but getting the man that helped him reach the status of a $12+ million a year guard is more important… at least to me.
