      He apparently is looking to be the highest paid CB in the NFL and the Panthers are not going to pay him that. I doubt the phins could afford him, but it would certainly be a great addition to the team. My guess is SF or Jacksonville will get him since they have endless amount of cap space to spend.

        Add Raiders to that list, right? Don't they have a ton of money too? I thought it was the Jags and Raiders who have been hording all their money and were forced to spend it this offseason. Either way, it would be a great addition and the Dolphins could scratch that position of need of their draft board in the early rounds if they wanted to pay Norman what he is asking. I'm sure Aponte could spread his contract out nicely so that it wouldn't be too bad for a few years, and at that point the cap space would go up anyway. I say sign the man and do it quick before other teams start crunching the numbers.

        Yes the Raiders could be players as well. What I find really strange is why they let him walk.. They could have kept him off the market and he eventually would have signed the tag. They could tag him again next year as well, so why wouldn't you keep him for the next couple seasons and then let him walk. I'm curious if there is more to this story.

      Panthers rescinded CB Josh Norman's franchise tag, making him a free agent.

      "After a number of conversations with Josh’s agent, we realized that a long-term deal was not attainable," GM Dave Gettleman said in a statement. "We thank Josh for all his contributions and truly wish him well."

      The stunning announcement makes it clear the Panthers aren't just rescinding Norman's tag, but moving on altogether. There would almost certainly seem to be more than meets the eye here, as Norman was one of the league's best players in 2015, and would have made an affordable $13.952 million under the franchise tag.

      If there's not, and this is a simple matter of the Panthers moving on from a player they determined would no longer be with the team past 2016, Norman will become the subject of a feeding frenzy on the open market.

        Bring it on... Norman and Maxwell would have their hands full covering Parker and Treadwell.

        Landry would be toasting the LBs, Safeties, and slots.

          Pay the man, pay the man, pay the man. People forget how good Elekpre-Olomu is too. If "Splash" signs Norman, he jumps from #32 in that ridiculous ranking to #1 in my book. And then the draft? Please God, Haven't we all suffered enough?

            If Tannenbaum wants to make a SPLASH then THIS is the SPLASH to make! If he thought the trade he made with the Eagles was a good one it is tiny in comparison to signing a player like Norman. He would probably still get flack just because of all the bad moves he made with the Jets coupled with the fact that he is running the show for the Dolphins. The football media hates the Dolphins and make fun of all their moves. Why the media isn't making fun of the Giants for overpaying Olivier Vernon is football politics. If the Dolphins would have re-signed him for the exact dollar amount the Giants paid for them the NFL Network would still be talking about it but since it's a NY team it flies under the radar.

            Signing Norman would solidify the defensive backfield and make the draft wide open for the Dolphins to do anything they wanted. They could go after a running back in the first or second round without having to worry about their secondary. They could sign a DE and LB with their first two picks without worrying about their secondary. They could go after a guard or tackle earlier then expected and draft a higher caliber player because of the signing of Norman.

            I agree with Kelbail, IF Tannenbaum can make this move he should be respected a little more in football circles because he is building a defense many of us are wanting the Dolphins to have. Maxwell and Norman as the Dolphins starting cornerbacks, then adding Shaq Lawson to that already stout defensive line would help turn this Dolphins team around. This Dolphins team could be among the top 5 in the league if they all stay healthy, which is obviously the key to most teams.

            Tannenbauam, Sign Norman!

              Agree, I'd pay the man. I'm sure Norman wants to storm South Normandy Beach instead of the likes of Oakland or Jacksonville. Giants is out, just aski Odell hehehe.
              The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

                Don't we have a lot of cap space? I think we could offer him a 4 year $52M deal. He reportedly wanted $16M a year. He might accept $13M a year to play in a state with no income tax.

                  ESPN is reporting that the Cowboys might be interested in signing Norman. They only have $7.61 Million in cap space and are set to pursue him. So, with that information I am sure the Dolphins have more then enough money in cap space to go after Norman. If he doesn't sign with the Dolphins please don't let him sign with ANY team in the AFC East or the Cowboys.

                    They need to let that go.............Tannenbaum will NEVER find anyone in the draft next year with any of those compensatory picks that will compare to Josh Norman. Tannenbaum needs to sign him immediately and have a beer and wait for the draft with nothing to worry about because he his a grand slam in free agency and is on his way to building an elite defense.

                  If we don't sign Norman because we are afraid of losing compensatory picks next year then Tannenbaum is an idiot. We have been thrifty so far this offseason. Here is an opportunity to make a splash since thats what he likes doing anyway. Norman would solidify our secondary and we would then not have to draft a corner early on. We can then address some other needs.

                    According to overthecap.com we currently have $16.375M in cap space. If we release Dion Jordan we can save an additional $2.290M. If we release Dallas Thomas we can save an additional $1.671M. That would put us at more than $20M under the cap. That would be more than enough to Sign Josh Norman. Not to mention we have many other players who make around $500K that will be released which will create even more cap space.

                        Yes Lawson is the choice and I'm 90% confident he will be there.

                      I'll pass on Norman. Living up here in Carolina I see and hear a lot of Panthers. IMO Norman is a product of the system in Carolina. He is not the best athlete out there at corner. Go back and look at his combine numbers, they weren't goo at all and he doesn't show explosiveness. With that being said he does show exceptional ball skills and instincts and he plays faster on the field than he test out. One of the things that made him so good last year was the constant pressure Carolina got on the opposing QB's. There were many times Norman was beaten but because of the pressure the QB couldn't get the ball to him.

                      He's 29, doesn't seem concerned about a ring (if so why not stay in Carolina). He was offer a franchise tag and refused, and seems to be only chasing the all mighty dollar. He's a good corner, but not worth the money he wants...JMHO
