Josh Norman is going to need to find a new celebration for 2017 season

Josh Norman is going to need to find a new celebration for 2017 season

RICHMOND—Josh Norman's bow and arrow celebration with the Redskins was born on Sept. 18, 2016, during Washington's Week 2 game vs. Dallas.

Unfortunately, on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017, Norman's move may have been officially put to rest — unless he wants to guarantee himself a flag and possible fine by doing it in the future.

Each year, NFL officials visit training camps around the league to update teams on new rules, and when making the rounds at Redskins camp, referee Carl Johnson stated matter of factly that, "Any simulation of a weapon is against the rules."

Norman puncuated a few big plays last year with the celebration, but now, there's no more uncertainty about it. It can't be performed anywhere on a field, including the sidelines.

If you think that it's silly how concerned the NFL is with what its players do when they're happy and trying to have — get ready for an F-word here — fun, you're not alone. Later on in Johnson's explanation of the regulations, for example, he had to describe the proper way to dunk the football on a goalpost (as long as there's no hanging on it, it's fine, apparently).

Norman has made it clear he wants to have more interceptions in 2017, after snagging just three last season. Now, on top of finding a way to make that happen, he'll need to find a new dance, too.

Kirk Cousins catches Josh Norman snoozing in the gym

Kirk Cousins catches Josh Norman snoozing in the gym

Josh Norman was really tired Monday. In fact, the Redskins' cornerback passed out in what appears to be the team's weight room, and quarterback Kirk Cousins hilariously caught it all on video. 

Even though it's only Day 4 of Redskins training camp in Ashburn, Norman truly must have been truly exhausted to try and catch some ZZZ's on the floor of the gym with music clearly blasting in the background.

Not commenting in the video — probably so he didn't wake him up and ruin the footage — Cousins made just a single observation about the defensive back: "Apparently J-No is an open-mouth sleeper"

These two go back and forth on the field daily, and it appears that battle has now crossed over the boundaries and into other areas of the team's camp.
