Redskins CB Josh Norman says secondary is ‘the best’ he’s had in Washington
Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is loving his team’s new-look defense, especially in the secondary, where the Redskins went out and added Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins this offseason.
So, is Norman ready to anoint the Redskins’ secondary and defense as the best one on which he has ever played? Not just yet, but he does think it’s the best one he’s been a part of in Washington:
“This is the best one I’ve had,” said Norman, before quickly adding “here” as in Washington, according to Les Carpenter of The Washington Post. “We’ll get to the point where it could be all time.”
Of course, Norman himself has been a pretty big disappointment since signing a $75 million deal with the Redskins back in 2016, so much so to the point where some even debated whether or not Washington should cut Norman this offseason.
But as for why Norman thinks this group is better than previous years? He chose an interesting word to describe his reasoning:
“It’s just because we got guys in here that know how to play the game,” he said. “We got guys who are not so … boisterous. You know what I’m saying? They let guys do their thing.”
Whatever that means.
Regardless, Norman is obviously excited to play with this new group, and perhaps the improved defense will also help him get back to playing at the level he was during his days with the Carolina Panthers.
The Redskins will play one more preseason game before opening up their regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 8.
