the ire of Washington head coach Jay Gruden during an October game for wearing headphones when the coach addressed the team at halftime of a loss to the Saints.Norman wound up being benched for the start of the second half of that game and his play didn’t earn rave reviews from Gruden at the league meetings in Arizona on Tuesday. Norman was signed to be a star cornerback and Gruden said he needs to see more from the veteran during the 2019 season if he’s going to be at that level.“But as far as his play for the whole season is concerned Sam Huff Jersey , it’s a solid starting cornerback play,” Gruden said, via NBC Sports Washington. “Now we’re looking for more from Josh and he’s going to give us more because we’re going to demand more. We’re looking for superstar status from Josh.”Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with Washington in 2016. With the ability to clear $12.5 million in cap space heading into the 2020 season, anything short of that superstar status could spell the end of his time with the team. Washington took a chance on Reuben Foster when no one else was willing to — claiming him off waivers shortly after he was charged with domestic violence.But those charges were dropped in January, and now he has avoided suspension from the league, but the team offered its firm words Friday.“We have been very clear with Reuben that his past does not have to determine his future — but the responsibility is squarely on him to change,” team president Bruce Allen said, via J.P. Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com.For his part, Foster sounds willing to accept that, saying he was “grateful” for a second chance.“I appreciate the support I have received from the league Jonathan Allen Jersey , my team, and my union to help me succeed,” Foster said in a statement from the team. I want to thank Commissioner [Roger] Goodell for the time that he has spent with me and for his understanding of me as a person. I accept the NFL’s decision and want to say that I am truly sorry for my past actions and the people who may have been hurt by them. Going forward, I will follow the plan outlined for me and work hard to earn back the trust of my teammates, the NFL, NFL fans, and the community. I know that my success is all up to me, and I am committed to not letting you down.”If he can stay on the field, he offers Washington a chance at immediate impact, though many will still consider the team’s decision a a cynical one considering his checkered past.
