Silver: I don’t expect 49ers to make a run at Josh Norman

Apr 22, 2016 at 1:13 PM--


The Washington Redskins are making a strong push for former Carolina Panthers cornerback turned free agent Josh Norman. It has been reported that there is already a strong offer on the table by Washington and Norman is visiting with the team today.

Mike Silver of NFL Media stated that he does not expect the 49ers to make a run at signing Norman, despite their early interest in him and reportedly being one of the favorites to acquire Norman.


Washington flew Norman and his family in on a private jet and he arrived at Redskins Park Friday afternoon in a Secret Service-style convoy of black SUVs, provided by the Redskins.


While the 49ers have asked Norman to visit the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, per CSN Bay Area, there is currently no visit planned.

Norman became a free agent on Wednesday when the Panthers rescinded their franchise tag for the cornerback, immediately making him a free agent. Norman is expected to sign a deal in the range of $14 million to $15 million per year over 5 years, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. That's a lot of money to commit to one player, but the 49ers have $52.6 million in cap space according to the NFLPA.

Washington has almost $12.2 million in cap space available (per NFLPA), which means that they would likely need to make some transactions in order to fit Norman under their cap.

Are they good? Are they bad? Maybe it depends on the week. No one really seems to be sure what to make of the San Francisco 49ers when it comes to power rankings. One week they are being walloped by the Miami Dolphins. The next, they are knocking off the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers finally earned their first home win of the season by beating the favored Rams 24-16 at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night as many were prepared to write off Kyle Shanahan's squad. Things don't get any easier for the 49ers, who will travel to Foxborough this weekend to face the New England Patriots before matchups against the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints. The 49ers received some more bad news on the injury front. Coach Shanahan informed reporters that featured

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The 49ers received some better-than-expected news this week regarding Trent Williams. Scans didn't show any broken bones or even a high-ankle sprain after the veteran Pro Bowl offensive tackle suffered an injury during Sunday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. "So, that was good news," Shanahan told reporters, "but (he's) still in too much pain to practice today, and I know he'll be questionable throughout the week. Hopefully, it will get better each day, but it's not there

Shanahan: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel's game-clinching run 'as impressive as I've ever seen'

With the game on the line for the San Francisco 49ers in their 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night, it was wide receiver Deebo Samuel who stepped up with what might go down as one of the team's biggest plays of the year. Coming out of the two-minute warning, the 49ers faced a third-and-seven from their own 38-yard line with no Rams timeouts remaining. A first down meant the 49ers would be able to run out the clock and earn a huge win after a demoralizing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins the week before. Enter Samuel, who got the ball on a flip pass play the 49ers had been running with success throughout the evening. Samuel weaved his way through the Rams defense close to a first down, then plowed through some defenders to make sure the job got
