49ers sign veteran CB Josh Norman to 1-year deal
The San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran cornerback Josh Norman to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday. In order to make room for Norman on the roster, San Francisco released Dontae Johnson.
Norman became a free agent this spring following the end of his one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Last season, he logged 24 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception in nine games with the Bills.
Prior to that, he spent four seasons Washington and four years with the Carolina Panthers, who drafted him in 2012. Norman's time with Washington ended early after the team signed him to a five-year, $75 million contract in April of 2016. The club released him in February of 2020 with one year remaining on his deal.
