Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Washington "changed its mind today and decided to make CB Aaron Colvin inactive" instead of Norman. Erin Hawksworth of 106.7 The Fan originally reported Norman would be inactive:
Expectations couldn't have been higher for the 31-year-old in the nation's capital after he signed a five-year, $75 million contract that included $50 million guaranteed in April 2016. Norman was coming off a Pro Bowl appearance and the first All-Pro honor of his career.
Through four seasons with the Redskins, he has yet to re-establish himself as one of the NFL's best corners.
Norman finished 2018 with 64 combined tackles, nine passes defended and three interceptions while Washington ranked 11th in pass defense DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average), per Football Outsiders. According to Pro Football Focus' Connor Price, Norman's 72.2 overall grade was 49th among cornerbacks.
Washington didn't entirely overhaul its secondary, but the team made one of the biggest free-agent splashes of the offseason when it signed Landon Collins to a six-year, $84 million deal. The team also added Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie when he returned from his brief retirement.
Despite those additions, Washington is 26th in pass defense DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average), per Football Outsiders.
