On Monday, the Washington Redskins reportedly agreed to terms with ex-New York Giants star safety Landon Collins on a six-year, $84 million deal with $45 million guaranteed.
Among the many to react to the news was Josh Norman, who played under now-Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman during his time in Carolina with the Panthers.
In a juicy tweet, Norman referenced how Gettleman rescinded the corner's franchise tag a week before the NFL Draft in 2016, allowing No. 24 to land big money in D.C.:

"When that situation came up, it was totally out of left field,'' Norman said later that year (via ESPN). "It just went downhill from there. It almost felt like I was stabbed in the back in a way."
"At the same time, I'm not saying he probably meant to do that in that way. It was just probably the business aspect of it, and the money factor, and what he believed, and how he learned how to do things," he added.
When Norman signed with the Redskins after his time under Gettleman with the Panthers, he agreed to $75 million with $51.1 guaranteed. It was the most ever for a cornerback.
Also reacting to the news about Collins was Arizona Cardinals safety, DJ Swearinger, who was cut from the Redskins in December.
