Free agent corner back Josh Norman is at it again. He wants a five-year deal worth $14 or 15 million per season.
That was the reason why he had his franchise tag rescinded after asking for $16 million. The Panthers were only willing to go as high as $10 million per season.
Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said that he valued his quarterback Cam Newton and his lineman more than he valued Norman. The big-headed Norman wants quarterback numbers and it just doesn’t work out.
They’re the most valuable position on the field. Cornerbacks? They’re probably the fourth or fifth valuable position, depending on the team.
He’s meeting with the Washington Redskins on Friday. The Redskins and the San Francisco 49ers are the front-runners to land Norman.
Norman was supposed to make $13.952 million if he had signed his franchise tag. However, by asking for $15 million, he would be the highest-paid corner in the league.
Yet, if he gets a little more than $14 million, he would still be the highest-paid corner, as well. Right now, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, whose making $14.024 million.
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is at $14.010 million, while Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is making $14 million.
We’ll have to wait and see what the Redskins or the 49ers will give him. If it’s a five-year, $70 million – it’ll be $14 million per season. However, if he signs for a five-year, $15 million deal, it’ll be worth $90 million.
