Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. made headline a few weeks ago after he went on record saying that CB Josh Norman is on relevant because of him.
Widely regarded as the best defensive back in the league last season on his Super Bowl Panthers, Norman was to many’s surprise let go by the team after failing to get a deal. Norman was soon scooped up by the Redskins for a whopping 75 million for 4 years.
