National Football League star Josh Norman takes part in Pamplona bull runs

Running with the bulls

If there's a list of things that National Football League teams don't want their premier players doing during the offseason, jumping over very angry bulls is probably pretty high on the list.

In his latest adventure, the Washington Redskins' cornerback was seen running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain - and leaping as well.

He's wearing a broad smile, with the sun behind him.

"A single picture can say a thousand words in one, but with that being said this picture does that number no justice". "& Elevate from there", he wrote.

Video captured from the event shows Norman sprinting towards a bull and jumping directly over it, showing off the skills that made him a Pro Bowl cornerback in 2015.

Washington likely wasn't too happy to find out one of its players did the running, but it seems like Norman did a little more than that.

Somewhere between 50 and 100 injuries are recorded annually at the festival, which features events such as bulls and people running streets together or, as in Norman's case, inside a gladiator-like arena. But Norman appears to have escaped unscathed.
