Josh Norman Likely to Get Fined for Saying Some Harsh Words to NFL Officials
Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman may have a fine coming his way for saying some harsh words to an official in yesterdays tie against the Cincinnati Bengals.
"Who is official 88? I’ve gotta know,” Norman said, per Mike Jones of the Washington Post. “You suck. I’m just putting it out there. We play a physical game, they know that. We come here international game, it all goes out the window. ... He needs to be reprimanded.”
The official he would be referring to is field judge Brad Freeman. Norman was called out five times for various infractions during the game (3 of them accepted by Bengals). He had a tough time guarding A.J. Green who went 121 yards on nine receptions.
Norman has been rather inconsistent as a Redskin. He was criticized week one for not covering Antonio Brown. That was what he was paid such a large contract for. A.J. Green caught five of his passes when battling Norman one-on-one.
