Redskins releasing Josh Norman, should Bills be interested?

Recommended Posts

While I'm guessing no, the author makes the cases for why(as well as why not, which may be  more obvious).

The Redskins are reportedly releasing cornerback Josh Norman. He’s an intriguing option on the open market.

Cornerback is not a pressing need for the Bills by any means. Tre’Davious White is amongst the best in the league. Behind him, there’s Levi Wallace and Kevin Johnson. Wallace is an ERFA so he’ll likely be back. Johnson is also an unrestricted free agent, and could possibly leave.

That No. 2 corner spot job could be up for grabs and with Norman in mind, could he fit the bill?

There’s plenty to consider with him. On a veteran minimal deal? Something very low? Sure, why not sign him? Releasing him from such a contract won’t hurt the Bills much at all if he’s still bad.

There’s reason he could be worth it. Prior to signing a massive $75 million deal with the Redskins, the 32-year-old was with… you guessed it, the Panthers. He’ll be very familiar with Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane.

While in McDermott’s defense, the now 32-year-old had an All-Pro season in 2015. The following year he skipped town to the Redskins as the two sides couldn’t find a contract agreement. The Panthers franchised tagged him then rescinded it and Norman found his way to the Redskins.

There, it’s been ugly.

Just this past season alone, he ranked as Pro Football Focus’ 111th best cornerback in the NFL. Wallace was at 44 while Johnson was at 23. It hasn’t been just this season, either. Per PFF, in his first six seasons, Norman allowed 13 touchdowns. This past season, he’s allowed seven and over the past two, 16 total.

Plus, again, he’s 32, and on top of that, he was released by the Redskins. Who is their head coach? Ron Rivera, who was in Carolina in 2015 as well. Rivera didn’t think he could turn around Norman, even.

Past a minimal deal, the Bills should walk away from Norman. But if he’s willing to earn a spot on the Bills, giving him a shot wouldn’t hurt.

With the likes of Johnson and EJ Gaines, McDermott has signed veteran players to man spots in his secondary in recent years. Norman could be the latest version of that if the price is low. What’s the worst that could happen? We already had Vontae Davis.

I haven't watched much of Norman the past few years but if McDermott feels he can start and if he comes cheap I have no problem giving him a chance.

I like the Norman idea a lot more than spending a high draft pick on a cb.

The author makes some good points.  McDermott and Beane probably already know if he's a Process guy for starters.

No.  He's done.  Rivera doesn't want him.  Red flag.

While you may be right, McDermott isn't always good with red flags, on Sundays anyhow.  ;)

Roundup: Redskins cut veteran WR Paul Richardson

The Washington Redskins continue to shed veteran players as the new regime takes over.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Friday that receiver Paul Richardson is being let go by the team, per a source informed of the situation. The team later confirmed the transaction.

The news comes after the Redskins cut veteran corner Josh Norman.

 

After four seasons in Seattle, Richardson signed a five-year, $40 million contract with Washington in 2018. He earned $16.9 million of that in his two years with the Redskins.

The team creates $2.5 million in salary cap savings with $6 million in dead money by releasing Richardson.

After signing his impressive contract in 2018, Richardson didn't live up to the deal. Bungled by injuries, he appeared in just 17 games in two seasons and totaled 507 receiving yards with four touchdowns on 48 receptions.

The 27-year-old isn't a top-shelf wideout but could provide depth to a squad looking for a veteran. A reunion with the Seahawks, who should be in the market for a receiver to pair with Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, could make sense after Richardson's sojourn in Washington.

Other news we're monitoring around the league:

»  Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman James Hurst has been suspended for the first four games of the 2020 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Hurst is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. He can return to the active roster the Monday following the team's fourth game.

No.   Past his expiration.

He was very good though.    I think he is 32 now.   Maybe someone needs a backup CB and signs him.

Draft a Running Back in the 2nd?  Add another EDGE or Corner?

He'd be good depth on a cheap contract but he's strictly a zone guy.

Fuck no. Josh Norman is terrible.

If Beane wants to spend money in free agency, go after CB James Bradberry from Carolina.

Bradberry was coached by McDermott when he was the DC and Beane was on the Assistant GM when Bradberry was drafted.

At 6'1" 210 lbs and 4.5 40 speed, 36" vertical jump Bradberry is taller, bigger, faster and more athletic than Wallace.

By having White and Bradberry Buffalo would have 2 great CB's for McDermott's system.


L*t is a loser

 

My adapt a Bill is Brandon Beane.

I remember Bradberry in the pre-draft process.   He created quite a buzz at the Senior Bowl despite coming out of a college must people never heard of.  That Senior Bowl buzz got he drafted at the bottom of the 2nd round.

Bradberry is solid, and is only 26 years old, so Heck yeah sign him IF NOT TOO EXPENSIVE. *    

* Bradberry is an example of why you try to draft Corners sometimes instead of signing them in Free Agency.   He apparently wants "top money".   IDK  $10 million a year?   Plus the Redskins and Ron Rivera will surely be talking to his agent.
