Ever since having an elite 2015 season with the Carolina Panthers, Josh Norman hasn't been the Pro Bowl, First-Team All Pro cornerback he once was. The Washington Redskins decided he wasn't worth the $10 million they were paying him per year, so they released him on Friday.

Norman had a terrible 2019, but his past success has shown that it is possible for him to bounce back at any time. There are plenty of teams around the NFL that could use a corner like him.

3. Tennessee Titans

Although Logan Ryan wants to remain a Tennessee Titan, his free agent status brings some uncertainty to where exactly he will land. If the Titans do end up bringing back Ryan and end up adding Norman as well, their run to the AFC Championship Game in 2019 could end up being more than a magical run, and they could see themselves being true contenders from the start in 2020.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars

Entering the 2019 season, the Jacksonville Jaguars had one of the top corners in the game in Jalen Ramsey. Entering 2020, their cornerback situation is headed by A.J. Bouye and Tre Herndon. A change is needed in their defensive backs situation, and Norman having a renaissance reminiscent of 2015 could greatly help a Jaguars team with a lot of uncertainty this offseason.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs have Charvarious Ward, but there is a high possibility that Morris Claiborne, Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller could all walk away this offseason in free agency. The addition of Norman wouldn't only add a solid starter, but some well-needed depth for the reigning Super Bowl champions.
