Norman set for fresh start after release from Redskins


Norman set for fresh start after release from Redskins

Cornerback Josh Norman said his four-year stint with the Washington Redskins has come to an end. Norman told NBC Sports Washington on Friday that new Redskins coach Ron Rivera called him earlier in the day to inform him of his impending release. Rivera was Norman's coach during the latter's time with the Carolina Panthers (2012-15).

"It's their choice, not mine," Norman said. "Now I can start something new and fresh." Norman became the NFL's highest-paid cornerback after signing a five-year contract worth up to $75 million prior to the 2016 season.

The 32-year-old, who was an All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection in 2015, recorded 235 tackles and seven interceptions during his four seasons with Washington. He saw his playing time dwindle last season, and he competed in just two of the final six games. Norman has 416 tackles, 14 interceptions and two touchdowns in 111 career games with the Panthers and Redskins.
