One thing is for sure, some NFL team is going to have quite the upgrade at the cornerback position when free agent Josh Norman decides to sign.
Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate did not have to think twice when asked on Thursday about the possibility of Norman signing with the Lions.
Golden Tate on Josh Norman: "I’d love to him and Slay playing together. We’d definitely love to have him"

On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers announced that they were rescinding the franchise tag from Norman, making him an unrestricted free agent. If the Lions were to sign Norman, they would most definitely have the best cornerback duo in the NFL with him and Darius Slay. That being said, the Lions are hoping to strike a long-term deal with Slay so bringing on Norman would not work unless they let Slay walk when he becomes a free agent.
