Josh Norman To Be Released By The Washington Redskins

Josh Norman appeared in just two of the Washington Redskins final six games last season. File

Norman informed NBC Sports Washington of the move Friday morning. "Now I can start something new and fresh". Norman's tenure in Washington started with a bang after signing a record-breaking five-year, $75 million contract in 2016 following until it ended in tumultuous fashion in the 2019 National Football League season.

The eight-year veteran had 40 total tackles, six passes defensed, an interception, a forced fumble and a sack in 12 games in 2019. To no surprise, he has since struggled to provide them with any bang for their buck after registering just 48 receptions for 507 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games during his two seasons with the team.

Even so, there was the idea new Redskins head coach Ron Rivera might be able to revive the relationship given his history with Norman, as well as his efforts with other guys like Trent Williams.


Norman spent the first four years of his career with the Carolina Panthers before his dramatic departure to the Redskins. He was an All-Pro selection and made the Pro Bowl while helping the Panthers reach the Super Bowl during the 2015 season. He also tweeted: "now let's go get this chip", referring to a Super Bowl.

Last year, former coach Jay Gruden said Norman's play had not risen to superstar status the team expected when they signed him.
