Josh Norman-Washington deal could be done by end of Friday

New, comments

The Josh Norman sweepstakes might end sooner than anybody expected. Norman is expected to visit with Washington on Friday, and FOX Sports reporter Peter Schrager is hearing a deal could be done by the end of the day.

It will be interesting to see how quickly Washington can make this happen. They have $11 million and change in cap space. That's obviously less than the $14 million Norman wants per year, but we know cap space doesn't quite work that way. A signing bonus will get this deal to the average, and a lower first year salary will save them the space needed in year one. And like most deals, it will probably be re-negotiated sooner rather than later.

So what happens? Does Norman get out of the DC area without a contract, or does he get locked up by the end of Friday?
