Josh Norman ready for 'something new and fresh' after Redskins release

Texans 2020 NFL free agency target CB Josh Norman

Texans 2020 NFL free agency target CB Josh Norman

Norman had one year remaining on his contract and the Redskins will save $12.44 million toward the cap by cutting him, according to Spotrac. Norman's tenure in Washington started with a bang after signing a record-breaking five-year, $75 million contract in 2016 following until it ended in tumultuous fashion in the 2019 National Football League season. His tenure was largely uneven as he was solid throughout his first few seasons, but faded as time went on. He played in only two games, covering 10 snaps, over the final six games.

The veteran defensive back said multiple teams have contacted his agent in regards to signing him as a free agent. He also was asked to play different styles than what made him successful in Carolina, where he played a lot of cover-2 zone.

Norman previously played for Ron Rivera while with the Carolina Panthers.

In 2016, Norman signed with Washington, and while he didn't earn a Pro Bowl or an All-Pro, he posted similar numbers with 67 tackles, two forced fumbles, 19 pass breakups, and three interceptions.

In my opinion, the ONLY way I would bring Norman in would be if he is willing to take a 1-year deal worth a very small amount of cash and that is unlikely to happen. That's what it is. Likely, despite his poor play in Washington, Norman will get that chance.
