The Carolina Panthers have removed the franchise tag from Josh Norman making him the best free agent available. This is shocking news, because Norman is a stud corner that really turned into a shut down corner in the NFL.
Panthers GM Dave Gettleman: “After a number of conversations with Josh’s agent we realized that a long-term deal was not attainable.” Panthers GM Dave Gettleman continued: “We thank Josh for all his contributions and truly wish him well.”
Josh Norman is about to get paid big time.
The #Panthers have rescinded the non-exclusive franchise tag on CB Josh Norman immediately making him an unrestricted free agent.
