Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said Saturday that he will donate $100,000 to Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Norman tweeted the following on his decision:

According to's Jason Hanna and Madison Park, Hurricane Maria was a Category 4 storm that resulted in devastation and at least 16 deaths.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said additional aid is needed despite United States President Donald Trump complying with his requests: "We need to do a lot more in order for us to get out of the emergency. But the other thing that's also true is that the administration has answered and has complied with our petitions in an expedited manner."

Norman is in the midst of his second season with the Redskins after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Carolina Panthers.

Per Spotrac, Norman inked a five-year, $75 million deal with Washington.

Through three games in 2017, Norman has registered 11 tackles, three passes defended and two forced fumbles for the 2-1 Redskins.
