Apparently there is one player the Redskins are willing to trade: Josh Norman. The problem is there isn't exactly a robust trade market for a soon to be 32-year-old cornerback with a $15 million price tag.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported: "Veteran defensive backs with big contracts such as T.J. Carrie of the Browns, Reshad Jones of the Dolphins, Josh Norman of the Redskins and Janoris Jenkins of the Giants are among those being shopped. If they are dealt, it's unlikely it will be for much given the age and contract."
Norman has struggled this season and is currently dealing with injuries, further limiting the potential returns a trade could deliver. He missed a Week 7 loss to the 49ers, and while he played last Thursday in a loss to the Vikings, he was clearly dealing with a hurt leg and was only put in the game due to injuries to other players.
Still, Norman could help a potential playoff team, particularly one that plays zone pass coverage. What Norman does really well is read quarterback's eyes and anticipate where the football will go. In the Redskins defense he rarely gets those types of opportunities.
In seven games this year, Norman has one interception and 31 tackles. Norman has one year remaining on his current contract and is scheduled to make $15 million next year. None of that money is guaranteed so a potential release looms for Norman in 2020, regardless what team he's on.
Last year Norman forced six turnovers and in 53 career games with Washington, Norman has seven career interceptions to go with seven career forced fumbles.
