Josh Norman says Dez Bryant didn't say 'unload the clip' after all

Josh Norman says Dez Bryant didn't say 'unload the clip' after all

By now you've probably read about the Thanksgiving trash talk between Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant. Who said what, who did what, how others reacted, and so forth. 

Even Norman and Bryant seem to have tired of the back and forth. 

Speaking with reporters on Monday, the Washington corner downplayed their war of words.

“It really wasn’t a situation. It was a game. We lost. They won. That was it," Norman said, via The Washington Post

Norman also refuted a previously reported claim that Bryant said to him, "Where I'm from, we unload the clip." 

Norman initially claimed the fight started when Bryant told him, “Where I’m from, we unload the clip.” Norman confirmed twice after the game to the Post that Bryant said that, but clarified on Monday that Bryant did not say the phrase. It’s a phrase Norman intended as a metaphor to describe himself, how he’s going to give it his all on the field.

For what it's worth, Bryant immediately disputed he said those words to Norman.

The Dallas receiver also spoke about the Thanksgiving dustup today.

"I’m really not trying to talk about that, but I wish I never did what I did, but that’s OK because it’s over with now,” Bryant said, via ESPN. “I’m not even focused on that. I’m not even fitting to open up another can. It’s all said and done. I wish I’d never done it. It happened. It’s over with.”

"I have nothing against that guy, I’m pretty sure he’s got nothing against me. It is what it is.”

2020 NFL Draft to include virtual moment of draft picks meeting Roger Goodell

2020 NFL Draft to include virtual moment of draft picks meeting Roger Goodell

The coronavirus pandemic will prevent 2020 NFL Draft picks from experiencing the post-selection handshake with commissioner Roger Goodell, but that doesn't mean this year's draft will be completely devoid of that moment. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, EA Sports will create a virtual moment featuring Goodell shaking hands with each team's first-round pick to go along with a remote draft. 

In order to do this as accurately as possible, EA Sports reached out to a number of likely first-round picks to get an idea of how they planned to greet the commissioner the moment they were drafted. 

Each prospect will also choose a high school to receive a $2,500 grant toward its football program. 

Whether the Redskins draft Chase Young, Tua Tagovailoa or trade back, Washington fans will be able to see their newest addition virtually walk across the draft stage.

The 2020 NFL Draft will be anything but normal compared to recent years, though it'll at least have a few items like this to make it an enjoyable night for everyone involved.

How to watch NBC Sports Washington's Mock Draft Mondays

How to watch NBC Sports Washington's Mock Draft Mondays

It's hard to believe, but the NFL Draft is less than three weeks away.

To break everything down, both the Redskins and Ravens crews here at NBC Sports Washington will debut a special show, Mock Draft Monday's presented by Papa John's, on Monday, April 6.

The Redskins hold the second overall pick in this year's draft, and many expect them to select Ohio State pass rusher Chase Young. Several draft experts have deemed Young as a generational talent and a can't miss prospect. But there's also the option of trading down in the draft to acquire more assets, and a QB-needy team like the Miami Dolphins at No. 5 could be a potential trade partner.

In addition to discussing what the Redskins will do with the No. 2 pick, the Redskins Talk crew will speak with newly-signed cornerback Kendall Fuller, Super Bowl-winning QB Joe Theismann, and Miami Dolphins beat reporter Safid Deen, who discusses a potential trade with Washington.

A total of 26 picks in the first round will pass between when the Redskins make their choice at No. 2 and when the Baltimore Ravens make their selection at No. 28, barring neither side makes a trade. The Ravens have multiple positions of need, such as both the interior offensive and defensive line, as well as wide receiver. What Baltimore will do at the end of the first round remains a mystery.

In NBC Sports Washington's latest Mock Draft, the Redskins unsurprisingly select Young at No. 2 while the Ravens nab Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray.
