Josh Norman Reacted With Happiness After Redskins Cut Him From Team (TWEET)

That being said, news just broke that the Washington Redskins are releasing CB Josh Norman and he could be a player that Lions GM Bob Quinn considers bringing in for the 2020 season. "Now I can start something new and fresh".

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.

Once a budding star playing for Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers, Norman quickly grew frustrated with Carolina's unwillingness to pay him like a top cornerback. The move was widely expected, even though Washington hired Rivera after the season. Norman's best work came in Carolina, where he was named a first-team All-Pro after the 2015 season.

That honor coincided with Norman's first venture into free agency. That year saw him and the Panthers reach the Super Bowl, where they were beaten by the Denver Broncos.

However, after the two sides failed to come to terms on an extension, the Panthers surprisingly rescinded the tag and allowed Norman to hit the open market. He also had a habit of getting lost in coverage and rode the bench in the late portion of the 2019 season. In another game, his only work was two special-teams snaps.
