Josh Norman

The final player is one that the team may not consider adding until they get closer to training camp, or even in training camp, and that is veteran Josh Norman. The Buffalo Bills signed Norman last year after he was released by Washington and he would go to split time with Levi Wallace as the starting corner opposite Tre’Davious White.

This past season Norman finished with 24 total tackles, one interception, and four passes defended in nine total games with three starts.

The reason for the Buffalo Bills to bring back Josh Norman is that he is a veteran player that knows this system well. He had some of his best years in the NFL playing for Sean McDermott when both were together with the Carolina Panthers.

It would be unrealistic to think that Norman will get back to that and he may not even be a player who competes for the starting job. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing and having a veteran option like Josh Norman waiting if the need were to arise could help this defense as they navigate through the upcoming season, and hopefully a playoff run.
