That could perhaps be seen as a dig at his former team, but at the least it's certainly a declaration that Norman wants to play for a championship contender.
Those years never lived up to his lone Pro Bowl season in 2015 when he helped lead Carolina to the Super Bowl with four interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns and three forced fumbles.
The Panthers rescinded their franchise tag with Norman at the end of the season, paving the way for him to sign with Redskins. Whether it's his age or something worse, Norman just flat out stunk in Washington. Richardson's release frees up $2.5 million.
After four seasons in Seattle, Richardson signed a five-year, $40 million contract with Washington in 2018. Norman proved unable to lock down any opposing receivers, either, and gave up 69.6 percent of catches - an nearly 20 percent jump from his final season in Carolina - 14.2 yards per reception and 2.7 receptions per game. He played in only two games, covering 10 snaps, over the final six games. His tenure was largely uneven as he was solid throughout his first few seasons, but faded as time went on. Signing Norman would also give Douglas the flexibility to pay up for other positions of need throughout the roster. Douglas must be judicious with his money, and Norman might be a step in the wrong direction considering the trend of his production, his age (32) and outspoken demeanor.
After the news broke, numerous fans took to social media as they displayed their desire for Norman to come to their teams.
