- John Keim of ESPN writes that depending on the play of the Redskins’ younger cornerbacks and veteran Orlando Scandrick, they could face a decision regarding CB Josh Norman in 2019.
- Keim mentions that Norman did not make the impact plays the defense needed last year when there was an opportunity to do so. Beyond that, Keim notes that Norman carries a cap figure of $14.5 million in 2019, which would be the fourth-highest for cornerbacks as of now.
- Washington could pick up $11.5 million of cap room by releasing Norman, but would also take on $6 million of dead money in the process.
- Giants WR Odell Beckham told reporters on Saturday that “of course” he still wants to be the highest-paid receiver in the NFL and added: “Who doesn’t want more money?” (Pat Leonard)
- Beckham also mentioned that he’s optimistic about contract talks: “Things will get worked out.” (Matt Lombardo)
- Beckham admitted that it’s a “calculated” risk to be practicing without a long-term deal in place.
- Giants HC Pat Shurmur says that Beckham is a “full-go” for practice: “Odell’s out here, he’s full-go, we’re taking it slow just like we set out to, but like what we see.” (Matt Lombardo)
- Regarding the decision to sign veteran CB Leonard Johnson, Shurmur said they like the way he moves around and thought he’d be a good addition to our secondary group. (Matt Lombardo)
- According to Ryan Dunleavy, the Giants worked out CB Sterling Moore on Friday.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden denied a recent report that WR Josh Doctson had his heeled drained.
“I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a heel being drained,” Gruden said, via Pro Football Talk. “So I don’t know where that came from. That is not true, but he’s going to do a little something out here today. We’ll see. I’d be surprised if he went full-go, but he did not have his heel drained. He just got it stepped on. No, he’s fine.”
