Josh Norman dissed Dez Bryant as “just a guy” and said Odell Beckham Jr. “is a big kid” in a wide-ranging interview published Thursday on Bleacher Report.
The Redskins cornerback has never lacked for confidence, and he made some predictably brash statements about his game and rival wide receivers in the interview.
Regarding his games this coming season against the Cowboys and Bryant and the Giants and Beckham, Norman promised mayhem.
“Trust me when I tell you, it’s going to be bad blood this year,” he told the website. “You think the NFC East didn’t like each other before? This year right here? There’s going to be a lot of fines and maybe some suspensions.”
Norman dismissed both Bryant and Beckham. When asked about Bryant, Norman said, “That’s a guy. Just a guy. Dez was Dez in 2012, ’13, ’14. Maybe ’14. Now? He’s a guy. He doesn’t ‘wow’ you. For me, he Cheap Jerseys Paypal Payment don’t. For other guys, he probably will do the worst to them because he’ll bully them. But you can’t bully a bully. …That’s why his game doesn’t resonate to me.”
Norman and Beckham have tangled during and after games the past two seasons. The most infamous incident came in a 2015 game when Norman, then with the Panthers, and Beckham scuffled on the field on several occasions, leading to fines for Norman and a one-game suspension for Beckham.
Norman told Bleacher Report that Beckham behaves Cheap Jerseys Sell differently when the two rivals meet.
“He tries to be a tough guy. He tries to put on this persona which he’s not,” Norman said. “He does things that he normally wouldn’t do because of all the pressure and added hype that he has to put on his whole persona. He’s not this guy. If you go back and watch the games in which we play compared to the games we don’t play each other, he’s a totally different guy.”
“When people get physical, tough, like the Minnesota game, he acts out. He’s a kid. He’s a big kid, man.”
