The landscape of the NFC has changed dramatically today.
The Carolina Panthers rescinded the franchise tag on Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman when they saw no path to a long-term deal.
As a result, Norman instantly becomes a free agent.
Only six to eight teams have room under the salary cap to realistically offer Norman in the $16 million range.
Norman is expected to be in high demand. Ten teams already have made inquiries, according to a source. Among those teams interested in Norman are the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, the source said.
A lot of those teams, with the cap room are pretty bad defenses across the board. The Jets could make an offer, but I doubt they can hit 16 million. The Dolphins may be the best fit based on the overall team roster.
