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?
