Redskins' cornerback Josh Norman competes in 'Dancing with the Stars' finale Monday

Josh Norman is fast, smooth and creative with excellent footwork that can leave you speechless.

Sure, those are qualities he has on the football field, but we're actually talking about his skills as a ballroom dancer.

Norman is one of three finalists on "Dancing with the Stars" during a shortened, athletes-only season. The Redskins' cornerback is partnered with pro dancer Sharna Burgess, and the couple will compete against two other pairs in the finals Monday night (8 p.m., ABC). 

Fiery, in sync and always entertaining, Norman and Burgess have stunned in the first three of four total episodes this season, but winning the mirrorball trophy won't be easy. They're up against Olympic figure skating bronze medalist Adam Rippon and former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding.  

Norman's only real competition is Rippon, who is beyond natural on the dance floor — although Norman has been a delightful surprise as well. Clearly — and like so many previous football players who have done well on "DWTS", like Calvin Johnson and Von Miller — his skills on the gridiron easily translate. 

Here's a look at his previous three performances with Burgess. Does it look like he has what it takes to win?

Week 1: The Cha Cha

Week 2: The Paso Doble

Week 3: A Contemporary Dance

Here's how you can vote for Josh and Sharna in Monday's season finale.

How professional athletes choose to spend their off-seasons tends to be one of the more fascinating topics for fans of sport.

We love putting big names under the microscope and dissecting their every move.

Washington Redskins star cornerback Josh Norman has decided to spend part of his off-season competing on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.


Over the years, plenty of NFL stars have stepped outside their comfort zones on the dance floor’s center stage.

Names like Michael Irvin, Chad Johnson, Antonio Brown, Von Miller, Kurt Warner, Jerry Rice, and Emmitt Smith have all graced us with their presences in past competitions.

Norman, the 31-year-old former fifth round draft pick, will compete against nine other stars, including Jamie Anderson, Jennie Finch, Adam Rippon and Tonya Harding.

This may not deliver the type of intensity the average football fan is used to enjoying on the gridiron, but don’t discount Norman’s ability to entertain under the bright lights.

Coming off a 7-9 season in which the Redskins missed the playoffs, look for Norman to let off steam and bring his competitive fire to the show.

We are nowhere near the start of the 2018 NFL season, but Redskins fans will have a chance to see just how nimble and quick their cornerback really is in his off-season.  

Dancing With the Stars' all-athlete season premieres Monday, April 30 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

See who Norman will be partnered with tomorrow on Good Morning America.

Josh Norman wears a kilt during Scotland trip and it's hilarious (VIDEO)

Josh Norman traveled to Scotland as part of an NFL promotional trip, and in turn, Josh Norman wore a kilt. 

It's awesome. 

Norman, along with Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders, decided to give the traditional Scottish formal attire a try, and the results were spectacular.

Norman even broke out in a tradional Scottish jig, sending the folks in the Glasgow audience into a frenzy.

Norman likes to have fun, and though the 2017 season didn't provide him many opportunities to do so, he's taking advantage while overseas. After Glasgow, Norman and the NFL crew went to Manchester, England, where he caught up with old friend and Manchester United star Paul Pogba for a jersey exchange.

Remember, Pogba hung out with the Redskins when the team played in London in 2016, and joined the Redskins Extra crew after the game. 

Plenty more cool pictures and videos from Norman's trip available via @NFLUK.
