Redskins Corner Josh Norman Finally Isn’t Getting Burned in One-on-One Drills
This off-season, cornerback Josh Norman signed with the Washington Redskins and received a huge contract. At the beginning of training camp, Norman seemed to be struggling against his new teammates during one-on-one drills, but he now looks to be turning things around.
In recent training camp practices, Norman went up against wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, the two receivers who burned him earlier in training camp. This time, Norman showed why he's the highest rated corner in Madden 17.
Norman first challenges Garcon in what seems to be a red zone one-on-one drill. In the first play, he holds his own and gets a good deflection. In the second play, he executes a solid flip turn and rides Garcon's hip.

Norman then goes up against Jackson, one of the quickest receivers in the league. The 2015 First Team All-Pro corner jams Jackson off his route and wins the battle. This is exactly what the team and fans want to see.
