Josh Norman was a son of Roy and Sandra Norman, and grew up in South Carolina, where he went to the Greenwood High School. Norman continued his education at the Horry Georgetown Tech, and then moved to Coastal Carolina University and played football during his freshman year. After impressing in his first season, Norman was offered a scholarship and in the next few years, he became one of the top cornerbacks in the country.
He graduated with a communications major and dramatic arts minor, then in 2012, the Carolina Panthers selected Norman as the 143rd pick overall in the NFL Draft, so he signed a four-year, $2.3 million deal with them. Josh experienced a fine rookie season, starting in 12 out of 16 games, finishing the year with 73 tackles, one interception, and seven passes defended. His first ever interception at the pro level came against the Chicago Bears when he picked Jay Cutler.
His career took a hit in 2013, when Norman played in only seven games and was inactive in five, falling behind on the depth chart behind Captain Munnerlyn, Drayton Florence, and Melvin White. However, in 2014, Josh played very well despite serving as a backup cornerback in the first seven weeks, but then he managed to limit such receivers as Jeremy Maclin, Mike Evans, Josh Gordon, and Julio Jones and moved back to the starting spot. He allowed only 27 catches on 58 targets for 291 yards and ended the season as the 4th best cornerback in the NFL behind Darrelle Revis, Vontae Dais, and Chris Harris Jr.
In 2015, Norman and the Panthers had a memorable season as he recorded 56 tackles, 18 passes defended, four interceptions, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries, which guaranteed him his first invitation to the Pro Bowl. Carolina won 15 games in the regular season and then defeated the Seattle Seahawks, and the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship game, 49-15. They met the Denver broncos in Super Bowl 50 but lost 10-24. At the end of the campaign, the Carolina Panthers rescinded the franchise tag they put on Norman earlier, so he became an unrestricted free agent.
Only two days following his release, Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Washington Redskins, making him the highest paid cornerback in NFL history, surpassing Darrelle Revis’ deal with the New York Jets in 2015. In his first year with the Redskins, Norman recorded 67 tackles, 19 passes defended, two forced fumbles, and three interceptions in 16 matches. His net worth seems set to rise again!
