Norman agrees to terms with Redskins


Former Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman did not stay on the free-agency market for long, joining the Washington Redskins.

Two days after the Panthers rescinded the non-exclusive franchise tag on the cornerback, Norman agreed to a deal with Redskins, reportedly for five years and worth $75million.

Washington was Norman's first free-agent visit as the San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all tried to court the Pro Bowl corner.

Now in the NFC East, Norman will get to face the New York Giants and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. twice a year.

A fifth-round pick in 2012, Norman had a career-high four interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns, and three forced fumbles, last season.

The Redskins and Panthers are scheduled to play in Washington on December 19.
