Josh Norman in Buffalo?

Recommended Posts

Fake news?  

 

He played for McD in Carolina ...back when he was a good player right?  Bring him in see what he can do.

He's not what he used to be.  He got benched on a bad Washington team.  He'd have to be cheap.

He would have to be cheap, and he is not used to playing for cheap...

 

It may not agree with him..

As long as he doesn't pull a "Vontae"

 

They need a "Vontae" clause in all contracts

Norman got paid and treated like a lock down but he was better as a zone guy. That's what can be nice at times about our scheme. We can get value out of players other teams just can't and we seem to be good at identifying those players. I don't really care much about Norman but if the front office thinks he's the right fit it would be an exciting signing.

Yes. 
Paragraph 173, Section 5, Paragraph 3. 
Any player who announces his retirement at halftime shall not be allowed to leave the locker room until the end of the game. And he shall allow each player and the entire coaching staff to kick him in the nuts.

Then he can move along to another team that is dumb enough to give him a big contract.  I'd pass on Norman since we have some good, young talent and it really isn't a position of need.

This doesn’t surprise me at all if he met with him. I will more surprised if he signs him, but even still, we do need 90 for camp. 
 

I have heard that the Bills have shown interest in Eli Apple. FWIW

And Bradberry. They definitely want to have two excellent corners.

He’s terrible.  Washington and Ron Rivera could not release him fast enough.  His play on the field and his negative presence in the locker room were equally poor.

Have they shown interest in Bradberry? If so that would be amazing (but $$). I hate Eli Apple

This was a no brainer.  To at least bring him in a talk to him.

Makes sense that they would.  But lie you, dunno about the money.  Tre is gonna get 15-18 a year.  I can’t see them paying another corner more than 10, but we’ll see

I think he could be a good fit opposite Tre.  Sometimes a change of scenery really helps. Going from the skins to a perennial top 3 defense coming off the playoffs 2 of 3 years playing under his old DC. Could help his play. Not guaranteed though

Eli Apple?!?!? OHH GOD NO.... he's by far the most overpaid Ohio State defensive player I have seen play in the NFL, and I'm a Buckeyes fan.

Maybe he just came for the Wilcox Mansion tour.

He wouldn't have very much, if any, expectations if he signs and for the first time since early on in his career, he won't be designated as the #1 corner. 

 

Now that Norman got his FA payday out of the way and has his familiarity with this staff and scheme, I'm all for it if the price is right. Who are any of us to voice displeasure with what coach has accomplished in the secondary ever since he got here?

Plot thickens, with a twist.

 

Someone on Reddit yesterday posted he saw Norman on his flight from Buffalo to Washington

No front office staff?  They should be able to sub for kickers since we cannot afford them to have feet damaged.

@Roger Goodell should be kicked as well so NFLPA does not complain.

Sounds like Beane & McDermott are exploring all of their options, like they always do.

Maybe Josh Norman was just in town for some career advice.

 

It is weird how NFLPA has rules about contact between players and coaching staff in off season but free agents can talk as much as they want.  For teams with new coaches it sort of gives those players advantages.

Norman is a Zone CB who was way overpaid, for the right price he would be a perfect fit for us. 
 

We will be in the same situation as the Redskins in a few years when we overpay our Zone CB.

Maybe I should walk around OBD wearing a Panthers uni, Beane might sign me on the spot.
