Saints become late entry in push to land Josh Norman

Washington was the early leader to land free-agent cornerback Josh Norman. And they may still get him. But they have competition.

The Saints are making a “strong push” to sign Norman, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The decision will come down to the Saints and Washington.

This means that everyone else is out, including the 49ers.

The Panthers removed the franchise tag from Norman on Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent. If he signs with the Saints, he’ll stay in the NFC South, facing Carolina twice this year: Sunday, October 16 and Thursday, November 17, on NBC.
