Both wide receiver Stefon Diggs and cornerback Josh Norman arrived in Buffalo this offseason, yet the two join the Bills' organization at different points in their careers.
Diggs, 26, is entering his prime and has already established himself as a top 10 wide receiver in the NFL. After being traded out of Minnesota, the former University of Maryland star has been tasked with proving he's a true No. 1 WR, as he no longer has Kirk Cousins throwing him passes and Pro Bowl wideout Adam Thielen opposite of him.
Norman, 30, signed with Buffalo in March after Washington released him prior to free agency. Norman signed a lucrative deal with the Burgundy and Gold in 2015, yet failed to live up to the lofty expectations his contract came with.
On Monday, the two had the chance to line up against one another in Buffalo's first padded practice of training camp. The Bills posted a video of one of their one-on-one battles from the session, and it was the receiver who came out on top.
However, that pass where Diggs got the best of him was one of the few low points for Norman during his first true practice with his new team.
According to multiple reports, Norman was an early standout for the Bills on Monday.
Later on in the practice, the Bills also posted a video of Norman displaying excellent coverage, breaking up the pass.
In Buffalo, Norman has the luxury of playing opposite of Tre'Davious White, an All-Pro cornerback from a season ago. Additionally, Norman reunites with Sean McDermott, who was his defensive coordinator when he was a member of the Panthers.
If Norman is going to return to the Pro Bowl-caliber player he was during his final season with Carolina, Buffalo is a very good spot to do it.
