Potential Target: CB Josh Norman

Fri Feb 14, 2020 3:42 pm

Stealing UOK's format :o

Norman was released by the Foreskins to save 12M. Seems like the type of corner that could excel if there's great pressure up front, and sux if not. Risk taking, boom/bust type.

If he goes without a suitor for a while, maybe we can nab him on a 1 year prove it deal and net a compensatory pick if we don't resign him the following year. We'll call that, the "Dix Move" lol...

Meh. Guy is on the wrong side of 30 and has played like absolute shit the last few years. I don't see him taking a 1-year "prove it" deal anywhere. Some dumbass team will over pay him in both money and years. Let's hope it's not the Bears.

His play was starting to decline when Carolina let him walk. Then Rivera gets hired and the over priced, under performing Norman gets terminated. Don't have to look too hard at this to see it for what it is.

Unrelated but Vernon Hargreaves just got released... sucked thus far in the NFL but still under 25. Might be worth kicking the tires on the cheap.

No on Norman. He hasn’t been good for a while.

Maybe on Hargreaves.

Norman was one of the weakest links on one of the worst defenses in the league. There's a reason he got cut...by his former head coach, nonetheless.

He was never good on the Skins, was he? I remember when he left the Panthers there was some talk about him having some limitations that were covered up on the Panthers and the Skins weren't getting the shut down corner they were expecting for that big deal. I can't for the life of me remember what it was, though. lol

I was so high on Hargreaves coming out of college. Well until he ran that 40. Slow. But maybe in bump and run with good pass-rushing team who knows maybe he could excel. I would kick the tires. I would sign if the price is right.

I've always thought of him as a pure cover-2 guy so maybe the Colts for him? They can afford it.

I'm still hopeful that Prince will restructure and the attention can shift to signing an EDGE to help Mack
