Josh Norman has amusing reaction to being cut by Redskins

"Now I can start something new and fresh". In 2015, Norman was a disruptive part of a Panthers defense that helped Carolina earn a 15-1 record and represent the NFC in Super Bowl 50. The move was widely expected, even though Washington hired Rivera after the season.

Norman looked great in his first year with the Redskins - three interceptions and 19 pass breakups - but he was abysmal by the end of the 2019 season. After the Panthers rescinded the franchise tag they had placed on Norman, he quickly signed a five-year deal with Washington worth up to $75 million, making him the NFL's highest-paid cornerback.

With the Jets on the verge of releasing fellow free agent bust Trumaine Johnson and in the market for a veteran starting cornerback, could Norman be an option?

Sometimes there are opponents, sometimes you can not do it because in no sport does one team win all the titles all the time. In a three-paragraph statement , City called the process "flawed and consistently leaked" and ultimately "prejudicial".

In his four years with the Redskins, Norman had seven interceptions and eight forced fumbles. He played in only two games, covering 10 snaps, over the final six games. He was asked to play different schemes than in Carolina, where the Panthers deployed a cover-2 zone.

Meanwhile, Washington still has a number of voids to fill on their roster before the 2020 National Football League season. At that age, the Texans nearly might as well re-sign Johnathan Joseph, who will be 36 years old come Opening Day and who has more respect with the locker room than a newcomer like Norman would have. In another game, his only work was two special-teams snaps.
