Draft Scout Josh Norman News
10/24/16 - CB Josh Norman departed in the third quarter with a concussion.
10/10/16 - CB Josh Norman needed a shot in his right wrist to return to the field Sunday against Baltimore. He re-aggravated the injury during the Ravens game. He had been on the injury report all week with a sore hand despite not missing any practices.
10/09/16 - CB Josh Norman sustained a wrist injury trying to defend a pass against WR Breshad Perriman but was able to return to the game Sunday. "I was thinking, 'I've got to go back out there,' but at one time, there was some doubt in my mind," said Norman, who has one interception on the season. "But I just sucked it up. I was like, 'Look, man, you're not hurting, you're not going to die. You can walk. You'll be fine. You can use one hand and be the one-hand bandit and do your job.'"
09/13/16 - CB Josh Norman was not assigned to shadow Steelers WR Antonio Brown, who finished with eight receptions for 126 yards and two touchdowns, both of which came while he was covered by CB Bashaud Breeland. "Our faith is trusting (defensive coordinator) Joe Barry, (defensive backs coach) Perry Fewell," Norman said. "That's why the guys brought me here. Faith in me to do my job and not question one thing in the game plan."
04/23/16 - CB Josh Norman was signed by the Redskins late in the day Friday (April 22).
The team did not disclose terms of the contract, but multiple reports indicated it was a five-year, $75 million deal that will make Norman the highest-paid player at his position in the NFL.

The New Orleans Saints were making a strong push to land Norman and were reported to be one of Norman's two final choices. The Jacksonville Jaguars also were one of the other teams pursuing him.
The 28-year-old Norman was flown by private jet to Washington by the Redskins on Friday and, according to ESPN, he was accompanied by his mother and several family members. Before leaving after the all-day visit, Norman accepted the team's offer, which reportedly included $50 million guaranteed.
Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said Friday he had contacted representatives for Norman, who became available on the open market when the Carolina Panthers rescinded his franchise tag on Wednesday.
Norman reportedly heard from about 10 NFL teams.
Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman pulled the plug when contract negotiations fell apart and Norman found little interest after the Panthers granted him permission to seek a trade.
Gettleman said Thursday at his pre-draft press conference that $13.9 million was just too much, and that the Panthers came to that realization through a series of staff meetings.
Norman, entering his fifth season in the NFL, finished 2015 with a career-best four interceptions and was named to the Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro. He also had 56 tackles, 16 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries while gaining acclaim as one of the league's best cornerbacks.
In his first four seasons with the Panthers, Norman started
