Washington Redskins and free agent cornerback Josh Norman have agreed to a deal worth 75 million dollars over five years with 50 million guaranteed. There were questions in the last 24-48 hours as to how interested the Ravens would be in signing Norman. Well, not at that price that's for sure.

So instead of Norman teaming up with the Ravens, he decides to go a little over 30 miles south of Baltimore to team up with the Redskins. A Redskins team that the Ravens will face in week 5 of the 2016 regular season at home in Baltimore. It's the battle of the beltways so to speak, between the Ravens and Redskins, but the Ravens look to be more than ready on paper to deal with Norman.

The veteran cornerback who spent his entire four year career with the Carolina Panthers is used to going up against the opponent's best wide receiver. If the Ravens live up to its talent level at the wide receiver position, Norman and the Redskins will not able to key on one guy.

From Steve Smith Sr., Kamar Aiken, Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman and Jeremy Butler, the Redskins could have its hands full on defense that day.
