The Washington Redskins paid Josh Norman quite a bit of money to be their number one corner and while he has held his own, one former Redskins player is calling on the team to get rid of him.
Fred Smoot a former cornerback in the NFL who played seven seasons for Washington over two stints between 2001 and 2009, threw Redskins cornerback under the bus when he joined the “Redskins Talk” podcast on NBC Sports Washington this week. He was extremely critical of Josh Norman, saying he doesn’t feel Norman is living up to his contract with the team.
“You have to ask yourself, ‘Where am I expendable?’ I’m going to look at that big cap number that Josh Norman has and that’s going to make me want to release him.”
“You wouldn’t go to a used car lot and try to pay new car prices, would you? At the end of the day, for what we pay for this guy, we’re not getting that return on that investment. I’m sorry, we paid too much for the car, it’s time we trade it back in.”
Last year was a down year for Norman, he only registered 64 tackles and three interceptions. That is not great, but he has been a solid player for the Skins. I wonder if Norman will respond, because Fred Smoot was a decent player in the league. Norman needs to reply to Smoot on the field, because he is due a monster year.
